Commentary This beautifully horrendous splurge of noise is dedicated with respect
& gratitude to Konrad Lorenz (particularly the 2nd line), John Bowlby & Robyn Skinner
for their development, expansion, propagation & explanations of Attachment Theory.
Lorenz’s pioneering work on imprinting in newborn geese heavily influenced Bowlby
who studied and wrote about human infants in his trilogy “Attachment”, “Separation”
and “Loss”. Robyn Skinner was a practising psychotherapist who, together with one
of his ‘patients’, the comedian, writer & actor John Cleese, wrote “Families and
How To Survive Them” and “Life and How to Survive It”.
The “part 493” subtitle is a recognition that this may not exactly be the first
time that I have attempted to address issues in this area.
Suddenly I exist. Follow that! It moves! Feed me! Feed me! What am I supposed to do? Teach
me. Lead me. I want to stay alive
and I depend utterly & completely upon you.
Where did you go? Where have you gone? I can’t find you anywhere. I’ve looked. I’ve
looked. I’ve looked. I’ve looked everywhere.
