Wavey wavey boys…. Also went up to Lansing and hung out at the … Continue reading Life as an activist and photographer

Here’s an excerpt of a successful woman’s odyssey through the world of epilepsy… It’s riveting. By Maya Schenwar, Truthout | Op-Ed “Why am I telling you all this? First of all, I really wanted to share this glamour shot I took of myself in the hospital with my head tangled in wires (see below). I think the cyborg-Medusa look could be the next runway hit. More importantly, though: For a long time, I didn’t want to tell anyone in my professional world about this unique feature of my brain. On the topics-that-are-fun-to-disclose-in-the-workplace-o-meter, epilepsy ranks somewhere… Continue reading I Am Not a Camel … but I Do Have Epilepsy
The verdict just came in on the George Floyd Case …. I have been crying …. crying for the Floyd’s family…. crying for relief … This case was a hard one for me … Its a personal reflection pehaps tainted with a bit of PTSD … My partner Tracy was in a similar situation almost 5 years ago and as I stood there in shock (cops are not suppose to act this way) I was screaming for the cop to stop and filming the interaction… but in that moment I heard him saying I can’t breath and watching the cop … Continue reading Sometimes Justice Prevails…. and why I always film cops….

Anyone who has been following me for a while…knows that I am a pretty big loudmouth and one who doesn’t back down easily… sometimes not a good thing. Recently wrote about our plans and future and what we had planned on doing … Big Mistake. I once was told by an activist who worked with Nelson Mandela …. that one of his favorite sayings was … Sometimes, You lead from Behind. Meaning you don’t have to always be out front and loud… It did change me from being out front to doing lots of things more behind the scenes. But … Continue reading Life as an Activist – when is it time to leave???

I am a peaceful protestor …. I have joked in the past about punching nazi’s … and to be honest … I really want to … however I am not as fast as I use to be … and I have an internal rage that I have fought for years. I have tried to learn from my peace activist peeps… but deep down… I struggle… My parents were smart enough to realize this and let me take martial arts classes that had a great instructor. They found outlets for physical excercise … and kept me pretty busy… I never … Continue reading Activists and Violence … Life as an activist…

Hello my peeps …. as you know I have been pretty quiet the last year and 1/2… My partner and I bought a RV and left Michigan for a 4 month trip which due to various things has gone on for a year and 1/2….. We are currently in the Nevada Desert and recuperating from Covid 19… We were lucky that we got the less serious type (via a medical visit from the doctor ) What most of the peeps don’t know is why we bought an RV and left Jackson, Michigan.
