We Own Our Familiar

They Define Who We Are


Sunset over the mountains

Taste of pure mountain water

The warm surf on your back

Ripe fruit juice running down your chin

Sight of the soil turning with the plow

Night sounds that soothe inner city dwellers to sleep


What are your familiars from childhood? What makes you smile to remember how it was then?


Saturday chores, shopping, baseball games, hangouts and movies


Sunday church, family dinner around the table, visiting


Television shows everybody watched and shared the next day


Holidays and festivals, Halloween costumes


Wizard of Oz, Star Wars, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, The Ten Commandments,

A Christmas Carol


Monopoly, spades, Old Maid, Jacks, Marbles, Jump rope, Hide and Seek, Candyland, Nintendo,

Pac Man


What books were read to you during childhood? In adolescence, what did you and your friends read? What was required reading in school?


Soccer, football, baseball, basketball, cricket, volleyball, tennis, horse racing, boxing, martial arts


What are your familiars born or culture; the cuisine, lifestyles, habits, gender roles and related responsibilities?


This was fertile ground for teaching how to think and behave. It taught you the social values and biases you regard today


Our familiar is as precious and part of us, as our family name


ONLY members of your group can and should define your familiar accurately


What and who are challenging our familiar?

Do they understand natural resentments that result?
