Form: "State of Nevada, Department of Public Safety, Division of Parole and Probation, "PRESENTENCE INVESTIGATION REPORT QUESTIONNAIRE"
Question: "Briefly describe your childhood and your relationship with your family:"
[2 and 1/3 blank lines to respond].
Answer: "My childhood was fine, and as I am still my parents' child, my childhood continues to grow and mature."
Question: "Describe the worst thing that happened to you as a child:"
[2 and 1/2 blank lines for that response].
Answer: "After graduation from high school, I moved out when my parents decided, for me, where I was to go to college rather than support me and my decision for my higher education."
BTW, my parent's choice: Oral Roberts University. Seriously. My parents are very strong supporters, just sometimes their priorities in what they support get distracted. Sigh, yes, they were 700 Club members too (and maybe still are).
The truth is, given their experience in their childhood, that my parents still breathe on planet earth is inspiring. And, they are really good people with good intention even if they are too trusting in those who may not be so deserving of it.
Perhaps now, more people can see -- regardless of his intention in the moment to send me to jail for 120 days flat -- what a gift Judge Herndon gave me. Now, as for his competency level, that is something which needs to be addressed. Perhaps. I do like the idea that sometimes the world just takes care of itself like that and I really don't have to "worry about a thing." Working on the destructive side of change is not always fun, and courtrooms can be fun, but I think I'd rather just paint and play and write and do poetry and drum and use the tuning forks and vibrate and dance and photograph and .... just otherwise do what I do to "unfuck the world"! =)
So, do I keep the Questionnaire or shred it? The complex questions in my life. The form has written on the bottom: "Original - File Copy - Offender" ... since I was the offender, this is a copy and The Original is in The File. Nice, I get to shred!
