I began exploring different way of thinking. How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie influenced me during this time. My Dad had the whole Dale Carnegie record set, a prize I listened to many
times. I was totally into the idea of influencing people. I practiced a “good strong handshake” with a smile and eye contact. Somehow I did not connect Carnegie’s ideas with New Thought, but did lead me into a
period of religious study. This exploration led me into a short period as a born-again Christian.
Possibly it was the fact if I attended the early morning campus life group they would pick us up, take us to a meeting with donuts and the take us all to school. I became a born-again sugary Christian for a very short time. But long enough to lead me to a New Year’s Eve retreat for all the different high school’s donut munchers.
It was during this time that I met my partner Chuck. Before boarding the bus to the retreat I heard a women’s voice say, this is the man you will marry and turned around to see who was talking and saw Chuck for the first time. We shared our first kiss on New Year’s Eve 1971.
Welcome to my blog. Here I will write about all things Cathy.
