I think it’s ok for me to repost this in its entirety since there’s a share button on there.
Everybody needs to watch this video, though I warn you, you need a strong constitution to do so. This is why I could never be a Democrat, a liberal or approve of the WHO. I don’t need another issue. This is barbarism and heart breaking. You don’t treat dogs like this. And this is part of the Democratic platform. Maryland just went around Larry Hogan’s veto to make abortion legal any time until moment of birth. Maryland joins about 8 other states who have the same laws, most of them blue states other than Alaska.
But this shouldn’t even be a partisan issue.
It’s flipping WRONG. If you can’t figure that out, there’s something seriously wrong with you. It’s this kind of thing that has divided this country and this world to an extent there may be no going back. And it’s not about religion.
I reluctantly and I say reluctantly am ok with abortion up to 8-10 weeks or a heartbeat to protect women whose birth control fails with a health condition like severe diabetes, or is raped. And a woman’s life comes first. But this is insane. Keep scrolling down and you’ll see Youtube video and then Matt’s link below. Not sure what happened with these heading things but I can’t delete them.
I love words so I write them. I’ve been doing that since I was old enough to read. I am a published literary writer and I was an adjunct English professor at Northern Michigan University for many years. I write and live and love off the grid on 35 acres and a trout stream in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula with my son, Joshua, who has Down Syndrome, and with an English Shepherd dog named Maggie, and with my husband when he can make it here which isn’t often. This blog started out being about my work, and it will continue to be. ( I’m working on a novel about premonitions and dreams.) But this blog is also about living off the grid and about my experimentation with diet—most recently the Carnivore Diet. I started on the Ketogenic diet, but have moved into Carnivore. How long, I don’t know. But I’ve become interest in the effects of diet on not just my health, but on creativity. And I’m interested in the effects of the diet on my dreams.
Ah, dreams... The day before my son was born, my mother “dreamed” or was told my son would have Down Syndrome, something she told my brother ahead of time. I’ve never known what to make of that. So I’m interested in prophetic dreams, lucid dreaming, creativity and dreams, night terrors. Who isn't interested in that? I’m interested in Freud (more Jung) and Einstein’s theories of time and how their ideas inform my dreams. I’m interested in mining a deeper relationship with a dream world not confined to daytime experiences, and how the night might inform a more fully imagined daytime “reality.” And vice-versa. Which is the dream?? I’m exploring dreams of all sorts. Come explore with me…

A very thought-provoking and unexpected piece.
I am deeply conflicted about abortion. On the one hand, I think it’s murder; on the other, I don’t think government has a place in medical care (that should be left to patients and doctors). I’m trapped in a logical conundrum: how can I abide murder not being prosecuted? Yet, at the same time, I have compassion for the women who have subjected themselves to this terrible thing—“Forgive them, for they know not what they do.”
We have murdered SO many babies, and some actually CELEBRATE this “right” we have. How dare we judge the blood-thirsty Mayans? THEY conducted human sacrifice in the name of their gods; we do it in the name of convenience.
I believe in the sanctity of life. When a civilization stops revering life and actually condones the murder of babies, adults aren’t far behind. Look how the elderly were treated during COVID. This is a terrible time to be vulnerable.
I hope you’re well!
Well, not the greatest. Dad has had some hard patches and my husband got this crazy fever and couldn’t move a muscle, had lumbar punctures, couldn’t figure it out, some weird virus but two days in hospital — now my son Josh with Downs has a cold, testing negative, but a cough and nose going. I’ve had a sore throat, so staying away from Dad. Just eating too much and lying in a pile. So never got around to answering this. How are you doing?
