Today's Featured Biography

 

 
John Groth


I've been a Sportscar idioso since I was age 9 when I walked past a 1958 white/black Alfa Romeo Guilietta Spider everyday on my way to Westwood Hills Elementary.
I could never, still can not, spell correctly because those school days I'm a product of were BFTDD [before they diagnosed dyslexia]though I did manage 4 point grades in English, Lit und writing courses in college. Go figure.
I am an artist in every sense, a fine arts major from Kendall by schooling, and an engineer from natural inclination and so by trade. . .but I did major in Philosophy and Psychology also. Picasso was my mentor from decades afar and I cried the day he died because my dream was to one day meet him and watch and learn from his energy like I did watching my friend e mentor, Ray Weidenaarer.
I read Sartre, "Nausea", Camus's "The Stranger" "The Plague" e "The Fall", Terry Southern's "Candy" -read sitting in the loft over the auditorium stage at UHS whilst I was supposed to be in class, and Edgar Rice Burroughs' "Princess of Mars" given to me by that tiny Hm Room teacher (bless her heart), Mrs. Haverlick (?), all when I was 13 in the ninth grade in Union Jr High. But I didn't really get whacked in both skull & sense of humorousity until I read every book by Kurt Vonnegut Jr, circa 1979-85 ish. Yeah, "life can be painfull, but that doesn't mean its serious" sort'a whacked in the noggin. HiHo.

My dear Dad taught me the joys of hours and hours of patient fishing, and to never expect to catch any. He invited me for 10 years to join him on fishing excursions, through out most of my 20's, but while he was renewed in his own enthusiasm for fishing going into his mid-50's as a way maybe to capture his long ago memories of youth, I was resistant and never went because I think I was too busy getting on with catching something else, the entrancing beauty of women and a solid maturity, never expecting, of course, to catch either, so I didn't ever go with him. The next thing I know, he is gone, and so our my chances to ever fish with him again. Each year I still drive 4 hours one way to Waugoshance Pt. and then walk and wade 5 miles to stand and fish with him. Occasionally, I do catch a small mouth bass again; now on flies, way back then when Dad "Butch" took me, on der nightcrawlers.
My dear Mom left us in misery from cancer a few years before Butch's shortened life ended. I found she had saved hundreds of Conde Nast and 'Holiday' magazines that I knew she had to have loved, in the attic. I never understood why she ferreted them away like gold bars, until 30 years later when I found myself doing the same damn thing with Forza mags: She so loved and yearned to Travel, as much as I like it now, but with six kids and then finishing college at Calvin, and her teaching job, she could never ever get her and Dad away for a trip to an exotic locale, not once. ..except when Dad was in the Coast Guard during WWII and he was stationed in Miami Beach Naval for a few months and she visted. So that was why she held onto those travel mags like unto gold, they were her only escape and back to experience those foreign worlds. Funny, in all those 19 years I lived at home she never ever spoke of any of those places, keeping the whole experience and dreams into her ownself.
You can have your eyes open everyday and still not see what's going on around you until 30 years later, ja?
I was founder, with friends, of the West Michigan Alfa Romeo Owners, inc. We like leaky but gorgeous cars und all things Italian, except their government?
Life ist some fun, isn't it? People ask this and I always reply, "it beats the alternative."
Hiho.

Some humans whom I'd surely like to meet:
Sartre, Camus, Jack Kerouac, Louis-Ferdinand Auguste Destouches, Megumi Kagurazaka, Heintz-Harald Frentzen, Karl Von Clausewitz, Lefty Kreh, and Jackson Pollack, Naguib Mahfouz, Cassandra O'Brien, Matsugane, oh yeah, and Kurt.
