Telephone Man Video Stories


The above image, Tangents is also available as a Desktop Background

Today's song is Call On Me by Chicago, released in 1974.

I worked for Illinois Bell Telephone Company in Chicago from October 1969 to September 1972. I had a number of sometimes funny, others sometimes tragic encounters during my career there.

Today I started a new section on my Don's YouTube Picks page, entitled, Telephone Man Stories. My first story is there from early October 1969.

Working in neighborhoods of different ethnic and racial demographics was eyeopening. I had the opportunity to realize almost all people seek the same things in life. Many of the thousands of customers I contacted told me their own personal stories. I met some very wonderful people back then, I learned a few important lessons for life too.

As time allows, I will add the stories I can share in a public medium. Many others are for in-person storytelling sessions only.

New short story, Did You Love Him?

---

On Tuesday night I watched the 1998 Native American movie, Smoke Signals. It's about two young men from Coeur d'Alene, Idaho traveling to find the same man in Arizona. The quote from the end of the movie dialog shown below:

"How do we forgive our fathers? Maybe in a dream. Do we forgive our fathers for leaving us too often, or forever, when we were little? Maybe for scaring us with unexpected rage, or making us nervous because there never seemed to be any rage there at all? Do we forgive our fathers for marrying, or not marrying, our mothers? Or divorcing, or not divorcing, our mothers? And shall we forgive them for their excesses of warmth or coldness? Shall we forgive them for pushing, or leaning? For shutting doors or speaking through walls? For never speaking, or never being silent? Do we forgive our fathers in our age, or in theirs? Or in their deaths, saying it to them or not saying it. If we forgive our fathers, what is left?"
