Can you sum up your life in three words?

Freud was a fan of the power of three.
Here’s my try: Lonesome, yearning, sharing.

What are your three words and why did you choose them?


  1. repressed because I was treated more like a boy growing up on the farm. School was freeing.

  2. Hi Gordon!
    Wow! Have fun in Portland! How long will you be away?
    I love your three words. The links are divine. Yes, you need updating! ๐Ÿ˜€

  3. I am coming back on Sunday. I’m working with an artist to come up with a new feature for Ask Vampire Bear and people just stopped asking questions which led to less content. If only there were a way to get people to ask him more questions. My biography can wait until I’m back in NY. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Mr. Gordon!
    What sort of new feature? A new blog design or a logo or what what what? โ—
    How soon are you sighting a return to NY and where do you plan to live?

  5. The new feature is going to be a weekly lesson – it will involve a downloadable pdf and a video that will help teach that pdf to you. In time you will be able to have an entire book – or order a ‘professional’ copy, of course. I will keep the topic of the weekly lesson until we’re ready to launch. ๐Ÿ™‚
    G-d willing I’m going to be back in NY by the end of August – and I’m going to be living on the Upper West Side. I’ll be able to take you out one night to see Upright Citizen’s Brigade Theater. ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. That sounds like a fascinating thing you’re doing with VB, Gordon. Good luck with it!
    You already have a place picked out in NYC? Upper West Side is a primo place. I prefer the Lower East Side just because it’s a little more gritty, but you’ll have a delightful time there.

  7. I was partially inspired by the awesome ASL book you and Janna wrote.
    For awhile I’m hopefully staying with a friend of mine. The kick of the UWS is that it has everything a Jew like me needs – kosher restaurants, a large choice of places to get my prayer on, and a supportive community. ๐Ÿ™‚
    (No comment on my UCBT offer? Almost all of their shows are still five bucks!)

  8. You’ll have to be more detailed about your inspiration, Gordon!
    I know a lot of Jews who live up thar’, Gordon! It is a wonderful spot filled with families and fine company.
    I’m not big on cursing — visit the UCBT you link and you’ll see they’re big potty mouths!

  9. All I can say for now is the inspiration came from the genius combination of video, images, and text. ๐Ÿ™‚
    There are some shows you can see at UCBT where the cursing is limited or not at all – it’s all down to the performers. I am actually thinking of signing up for a few improv classes. When I perform at the end of the semester, so to speak, you can be guaranteed no potty mouth from me! ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Hmm. That’s an intriguing idea, Gordon. You’ll have to spill the beans sooner or later! :mrgreen:
    That sounds like a fun plan, Gordon. You could video your rehearsals and then sell a CD of your genius!

  11. Yea, but need to kick out the “lonely” bit, soon! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thought provoking post, David.

  12. Hi Hanie!
    I don’t think lonely is a bad thing. I think it tempers expectation and teaches patience. I know a lot of folks who are terribly lonely even in the company of others.

  13. There you are, my Katha!
    So good to hear from you! I hope things are going good for you and your family in India.
    I love your three words! Well done!

  14. I am so glad to hear from you, Katha!
    If your fingers are typing, your mind is engaged, and your lungs are breathing life into you! ๐Ÿ˜€
