MOM'S AILING HEALTH beckoned us back to my birthplace and between sessions with my mother I dug through 29 cubic feet of remnants, uncovering items from years ago. I was in different places since leaving Lancaster County in the 70s but some very intriguing items fell out on the floor while I tried to sort through memories. I tossed some of the things outside on the grass, wondering if any readers want to guess how they could have resulted in my first court appearance. I found leather-bound books--more than 10 stone of them--some from Jeppesen with original flight plans of supersonic runs over Oklahoma and Kansas. A few of my weather-torn maps could tell stories of the irradiated Pacific. Nondescript working notes offer a glimpse at the post-Cold War KGB operatives who literally bugged me while I was caught in a counterintelligence sting. I'm burning a lot of these items because I don't want to explain why I have them. Moreover, I need to cauterise some lost moments forever. Sometimes bill quite nicely.
