I have always believed that there were medicinal benefits and many more to be discovered. As a nurse, my activism belongs to the patient.

Americans have been denied the healing effects of cannabis since Harry Anslinger, former head of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics, 1931 – 1962, pushed through legislation that was designed in secrecy and deception for 2 years.  The result was the 1937 Marihuana Tax Act that made hemp and marijuana illegal for any use.  Most historians […]

How do you ride the wave of Inspiration?  In Greek mythology, there were nine daughters or Muses who some scholars believed to be the primordial Goddesses of Uranus and Gaiea.

I am transitioning to living and breathing en femme. The hormones I inject are rapidly transforming my skin; hair, body fat distribution and my breasts are already a full B cup.

The American presidency is an expanding fault in which it is now descending. The fault is both a chasm of political illiteracy and a chasm of weakness. It increasingly appears as a moral defect and failing that elected Donald Trump into the highest office of our country, the office of the President. We allowed this to happen […]

I woke up in a fog unsure of where I was.  The lights were bright and I could hear people walking around and talking quietly. I couldn’t make out what they were saying. My strength dissipating, my body sought sleep. My eyes closed sending me back into a dream like state.  Was I in an […]

The Baby Boomer, we were the generation that was never going to get old. After all, we were the generation that on the night of Thursday, Nov. 13, 1969, the “March Against Death”was born. Washington, D.C., had never seen more protesters than any single event in its history. Attendance was higher, by tens of thousands, […]

I’d rather be driving. It’s strange if not unnerving how life can turn on a dime.  I can remember my mother saying that about our brand new 1957 Oldsmobile Super 88. It was our first car with power steering! I digress.  That is not the dime I was speaking of but hey, I’ve always had […]

I’ll admit it. I’m a road lizard, a highway junkie, a white line freak on asphalt though I’ve been known to explore dirt roads leading to nowhere.  I love the road, I love driving or riding but mostly sitting behind the steering wheel. I love the sights, the sounds, the smells and the feel of […]

As you guessed from my other column I like to drive. I’m an explorer of highways and roads with a notoriety mostly known to those living alongside them and serving as an artery drawn on a map showing a physical destination. Highway 96 is one those I’ve traveled. I traveled it because it exists. And […]

I’m a traveler. Always have been. Always will be. And I like to drive. Not cattle but a car. Highway 79 is an ambiguous, pleasant and thought-provoking drive through sun-baked soil and red neck country amid the wealthy situated along side hard-working farmers and the dispossessed where justice and fairness occasionally leaves a dry taste […]
