Benjamin Maurice Melançon the First, A.D.H.D. variously known as BMM Inc., the Maurice Institute Library, and the godfather of CATSUP, is quite possibly a figment of his own imagination.

The problem has been addressed

Here's a story Dad told a couple times that it doesn't seem I have written down.

Working at, managing, the Community Playthings workshop for the Macedonia Cooperative Community – the intentional community in Georgia, he would call it.

Dad described how they made very good quality wooden educational toys. In particular he talked about wooden stove and refrigerator type sets.

if every act were important enough

Also from Heidi, this is written longhand (in Dad's sometimes hard to decipher cursive) on Macedonia Cooperative Community / Clarkesville, Ga. / Makers of / Community Playthings letterhead (the intentional community where Dad helped manage the wooden toy and kitchen set shop).

I love you with / the words

Poetry by my father, sent by his first wife and daughter. Typed on paper with a Southeastern Cooperative League, Clarksville, Ga. letterhead (and footer reading Affiliated with Cooperative League of USA).

I love you with
the words, the
silence makes,
and for the dream
your searching
eyes imply.
I love you while
my unsure path
requires a deeper
knowledge
A greater love.

An e-mail one Wednesday in early December

Through the mlncn.com contact form on the morning of 2008 December 3:

I'm looking to personally contact Benjamin Melancon in regards to his father. I may have a family connection but would like confirmation.
Thank you.
