Sample text

He would worry about the same things over and over and over. Because he always worried so much and because I was always a rebel, I never much worried. That bugged him. I have always been prone to simply thinking things through as thoroughly as I can once and then going with my decision. If I conclude I’m wrong, I may conclude to change. That drove him nuts. Father used to say to me,“Ken, I wish you would run scared more often. How about just once? ” For the life of me, I couldn’t think why I would want to live life that way; but he not only wanted that for me, he wanted it for himself.

Or Arthur, and he liked Arthur better than anyone but my mother. But the reality is that Father was just a solitary guy. Regardless of with whom he interacted, it was all relative degrees of solitude. When Arthur and then I came to work with him in the early 1970’s, it drove him nuts, in my opinion. He had been pretty much alone and solitary his whole career, and being around us all that time was too much. Seeing that it drove him nuts, realizing I hadn’t yet really learned who he was and, as stated earlier, realizing there wasn’t a career opportunity with him because he couldn’t delegate, I determined rather promptly to distance myself a bit to make him and me less nuts.

Just because I knew he wasn’t good at knowing what would cause them to break one way or the other, I later put effort into getting specificallytrained to do just that—because I wanted to learn something I knew he didn’t know how to do. Late in his life, he marveled that I could do it because it was inconceivable to him that anyone could.
