KindredSpirit’s Special: I Got a Taste of Environment and for Independence

When I was 8 years old, the family moved to a farm in Ontario, NY which has remained my home.  I lived through a number environmental changes that had formulated my own view about the conditions we find today.  I enjoyed rural life helping with farm chores from feeding chickens and ducks to running our old John Deere tractor for dad cultivating the grape vineyard rows which helped to control the moisture.

My bedroom was off the breakfast room within sight of mom so never had the luxury of locking my door or putting up a sign that read,”STAY OUT!” My mom’s sense of cleanliness came with sharp rebuke if things were too messy. I also had the chore of mop up of the floors and occasionally helped with the dishes. However, one great benefit was learning responsibility, co-operative teamwork quickly learning that mom and dad expected once noted, needed no repeating. My older brothers and sister were somewhat peeved because they thought I was the favorite, being the youngest but totally untrue. I say this with some clarity that one time I got into a heated argument with my grandma who lived with us. The next day I declared that I was leaving home for good right after breakfast;  I had to eat first.  Mom and dad did not say anything but after breakfast she made me some sandwiches, a thermos of split pea soup and entering my bedroom removed a small suitcase into which I folded neatly some underwear, extra pants and she gathered from under my bed my baseball mitt and bat saying I certainly would not want to leave these behind. She put my mitt and my Bible in the suitcase, making it a bit heavier than I wanted. I hugged and kissed them all and putting my bat over my shoulder I started toward the road discovering that the added weight and the  baseball bat made travel difficult.

Walking down the road, lugging my life’s worth made me hungry. I decided to rest under a large pine tree that bordered our land.  I remember thinking, “Now they will be sorry.” I awoke to the hoot of an owl. I had fallen to sleep and the sun was setting in the west.  I jumped up hungry again, having eaten the soup and sandwiches earlier. I was famished.  I took off for home and was happy to see they had just sat down to eat supper. I came in rather sheepishly and went to my room and put my stuff under the bed. I noticed my place was set. All I said was, “I got cold and decided I’d come home to live. I got lonesome out there alone.” Mom just smiled.

      I write my articles with a purpose to make them enjoyable and provide a broad background of chess understanding. That I doubt my chess instruction is equal to GMs or professional chess teachers, I hope I fill what I always imagined as a big void; copy others do not sound interesting. I taught myself to play chess as a child and I hope my approach is a breath of fresh air aimed principally at the gneral reader./Don.
