MOUNT ST. HELENS

Roger called it reaction formation. That there was an earlier time and we’d reacted. That it all came down to adaptation and reaction. It was desire and its opposite. It was the anxiety of desire. He said that some of us had chosen unhealthy reactions. We’d become used to this. It became comfortable. You push someone away when you’d rather be close. You stop trying to please when all you want is to please.

My second grade teacher, Janet Rand, didn’t care a whit for pleasing anyone. She regularly compared herself to Mount St. Helens. She’d get angry—her voice loud and scary—and declare,

“Mount St. Janet is going to erupt!”

Everyone was talking about the volcano that year.
