SSheley, My pet...
How nice to hear that I ain the most undomestic person you
know! What could be a finer copmpliment? However, I much
qJ prefer housework now that I don't have Old Poutylips Whats
\ his name looking over my shoulder and sulking about the
general filthy state of things.
I have been in a leng ty (2yr) relationship w an obsessive-
S compulsive, and my housekeeping has shaped up admirably,
though of course I wouldn't imply that Betty Crocker wouldn't
be comatose after passing through my door--but then she scarcely
was a ROLL model for me.
SAnyway, send me a picture of Josie. I'm sending you a picture
( of that child of mine, in the back pages of Womanews. Ms Joan
Parker Harrison-Walton (her legal name) has gotten into scrapes
. with her politics (ie, referring to God inthe feminine pronoun)
Sat her nursery school. Very kind, strong, STUBBORN, nurturing,
proud little smart-ale'c. Yes, that's Mommy's girl..even though she
calls me "fascist".
Yes, things will definitely be better when you have a job. The
longer I stayed home the more inadequate I felt, thinking that
that I wouldn't be able to do ANYTHING competently.Ho-hum, I've
') heard that a thousand times..but then it's always different when i,
1n I'm still pounding out my column on a monthly basis,and I want
to write more when Joan goes to Lewis' house this summer. I
Shave realized thaY relationships have taken up an exorbitant amoun"
^^ of my energy,and Iit to put more energy into my writing instead
ar of into Signicant Otf'ers before I become a.Signicant Other as
opposed t6 Significant selfI
My relationships have been very reinforcing, nurturing,ecetera,
but for once I'd like to quit Ikx while we're all ahaed and put
everything on hold for a while. I could have wrtttan a set of encyi
~ imBp lopedias *tth the energy I've put into people.
SHappy Birthday to you, Happy BirA y to you, As a Holly Near tee

-'.S. I hear Woody Allen's "A!li:F HALL" is a good movie. eve t
Else coming out of Hollywood is m irrelevant garbagr revolving r;
Around the Macho Mystique...and I don't have to pay to see that
Ross Thompson, Signicant Otherand Politico is bending my ear to
run for SCHOOL BOARD. Certainly if Tom Hayden can run for Senate,
I should be a ashoo-in. However, electoral politics are highly
aversive to me ever since I cCovern, but it's still a remote pIMEs
possibility. The future is open!
