This morning I got up to go to a four hour seminar conducted by Dr. Pat Allen entitled “The Art of Love.” When I turned my car radio on, “Ain’t talking about love” by Van Halen was on the radio.


This 69 year-old cognitive psychologist also believes that feminism has backfired on us as far as relationship roles and expectations are concerned. Good, I thought it was me. At the end of the seminar, I had a good understanding, from a neurological perspective, of how to understand psychotics and neurotics. More than anything, I know I’ve been straddling a parallel universe, not able to choose between an independent male-female who wants respect, and a female-female who wants to be cherished.

When I left, I checked out the ass of the one male attendee, got in my car, turned on the radio and No Doubt’s revamp of Talk Talk’s song “It’s my life” was playing.
