Psychotherapy — Back to School

Image

The daily prompt today is:

If you could take a break from your life and go back to school to master a subject, what would it be?

My answer is Psychotherapy.

Sigmund Freud

Sigmund Freud

I do have an undergraduate degree (B.A) in Psychology. I had planned to continue this line of  study but something called “Viet Nam” came along that interrupted my plans. Attending Graduate School did  not quality you for  the cherished student deferment (2-S). A letter from the Selective Service was one of the  first letters I received after graduation. At that time they instituted a “Lottery” system instead of the  regular draft. I have never any good in gambling and lost this time too. I got  as far as Ft. Wayne in Detroit. I had already received my Bible and was standing  in line in my underwear when the Doctor called me aside and  informed me that the Army  didn’t want to draft me because I had a previous  heart condition  which I had actually out grown. I was given  a bus ticket home and that was my service career.

I should  have gone  back to Graduate school at that time  but money was an issue. So…I started my employment career.

I  wish I could go back to school today but I’m afraid too much time has elapsed and I would  have to start all over  again. Not that much time left for me.

Thanks for the inspiration from the Daily Prompt.

Fly on the wall

Winston Churchill and Ike Eisenhower.

Winston Churchill and Ike Eisenhower

f you could be a “fly on the wall” anywhere and at any time in history, where and when would you choose?

Winston Churchill shows off his famous ‘siren suit’ to General Dwight D Eisenhower, during a tour of Allied invasion forces in Kent, 12 May 1944.

If I was a fly on the  wall  I would like to know what that conversation was like. “You show me  yours, and I’ll show you mine”? “Too much cleavage Mr. Prime  Minister”? “Nice Mr. Prime Minister, but I have more buttons.”
