Grant M. Handgisabout this book: "I Have Mine...Show Me Yours" is the first half of the full memoir, beginning the story as a clueless child of nine, who learns the first lesson of Show Me Yours. That didn't work out so well for me, thus leading me to further adventures in life that were as educative as the first. A satirical account of life as a learning process, whereupon various characters in our lives tend to have a lot of fun with clueless individuals.
Woven within the story are applicable principles of personal action, as prescribed by a Shamanic figure of a Toltec lineage. What I came to call Correct Behavior, and all of which I learned along the way. Those principles lead, eventually, to a person of knowledge. A philosophical metaphor for the term we lonvingly refer to as thinking, which of course arrives many years after the fact. And let me tell you, the view from that perch is breathtaking. One is able to jigger the future from this position, but the past is but a slate from which our sordid past is recorded. Things like finding one's spot, traveling in Big Dawg, Uncle Bert's Surprise dinners, Little Mother stories and learning the perfect James Dean dismount from a motorcycle are all part of that record, which tends to make excellent fodder for memoirs.
I took the liberty of altering a few names in the story to protect the innocent, and lessen the chance of a contract being put out on my person. Although a few names have been altered, the story is sadly all true, embarrassing as that tends to be at times. Buy this book only if you like to laugh at life lessons of clueless individuals.
