Visiting The Weed Doctor

If nothing else, I figured that this might be an interesting story for some. INTRODUCTIONIn America, some states have legalized or decriminalized cannabis [marijuana]. It varies from state to state. I fought hard in the 90s and 2000s to get cannabis legalized in California. For a while, only medicinal was available. This meant that youContinue reading “Visiting The Weed Doctor”

The Fine Art of Self-Hatred

INTRODUCTIONIf there is just one thing that I’ve learned in recent years about self-hatred, it’s that you don’t realize how much self-hatred you have until you meet someone who hates themselves even more.

On Ageism and Growing Old

Memories, and Sorting Through the Boxes

I was originally going to kick this off by comparing memories to things that are packed away in unmarked storage boxes. But then I realized that this isn’t completely accurate. Also, I’m not up for changing the title, so we’re going with a different analogy. You’re making a beef stew in a crock pot. YouContinue reading “Memories, and Sorting Through the Boxes”
