These demi-cups by Kanaé Tsukamoto induce thoughts of whipping up some creme brulé. No?

    I love this idea, it’s downright enriepteneurral. Don’t ignore a problem, look it straight in the eye. Get enough people to take a look and someone will find a solution or a bunch of partial solutions. I have already forwarded a link for this story to the CEO of my town’s Chamber.

    Lindsey McCready (Wouldn’t let me post earlier for some raeson!)1) I believe that his fathers constant criticisms of Jake and constant pressure upon Jake to be an “intellectual” have made Jake do everything in his power NOT to be the man his father wants him to be. It is clear that Jake’s relationship with his father was very poor, and thus he tries to be everything opposite of him. I believe that Jake is naturally intelligent and knowledgeable (and thus capable of his fathers aspirations for him), but that he downplays this because he doesn’t want to resemble the man his father is in any way/shape/or form. I believe that Jake’s relationship with his father has resulted in certain feelings of anger and mistrust as he emerged into adulthood. This leads into his relationship with Amy. Amy, though he realizes it or not, shares common personality features with his father. This has re-awakened in him the same feelings that he’d feel around his father. Anger and mistrust.2) I do believe that it is a good approach. So, it seems I am in disagreement with several people here. I think that although this may reaffirm Jake’s stereotypes about therapy, and although Jake closes himself off, it is important nonetheless. It gets Jake thinking about something he may never have considered before. Even though he may not be as verbal, I still think the gears are turning and it might give him something to talk about when he has had more time to process it. I do agree that the client-centered approach seems to work best for someone like Jake (who is stiff during sessions and less inclined to want to disclose certain material), but that does not mean I feel Paul’s psychoanalytic approach was entirely useless.3) This is very difficult to answer. It seems that Jake and Amy’s marriage can’t be fixed until certain other issues are fixed: like Amy coming to grips with her fear of abandonment and her overwhelming guilt/need to punish herself, and Jake settling his relations with his father. Then, both will need to do some real soul-searching and decide if ultimately they want to stay in the marriage. I personally have always had a faith in love, so I think if they are able to settle their differences they will stay together. It is clear that divorce is not what they really want, or they wouldn’t have fought so hard for their marriage by going through counseling or staying together so long. I believe they will stay together by the end of the therapy – that’s not to say they will be together forever, however.
