Joni Mitchell and what other famous musicians think of her. Who she influenced with her heartfelt songs.
https://www.worldpulse.com/en/community/users/girlpower/posts/68290 Joni Mitchell's music brought the counterculture to it's knees, with her songs of love and getting lost and losing someone, it's a rite of passage for anyone on the sea of emotion. It makes...

Last week, we experienced the worst mass shooting in our country’s recorded history. 49 people were murdered in an LGBT nightclub in Orlando.
We thought this would be the breaking point. Finally, our nation’s leaders would take action to curb gun violence.
But once again, they chose to do nothing.

What our Vice President said today about equality and the Orlando shooting still didn't convince the GOP to vote for stricter gun safety rules.

Mentally ill gun owners are worried. Worried if gun safety laws pass, these mentally ill gun owners could lose their right to buy more guns. Why do you think they are so dead set against the mention of new gun safety rules? When, not if, new gun safety rules are passed, anyone with a history …

this is amazing, esp the video of the migration of whales over five years, and the walrus massive group that never found the ice flows. We are changing our climate, getting rid of fossil fuels is within our vision.
The Arctic is a thriving, diverse landscape filled with life. There is currently no offshore oil and gas development in America’s Arctic Ocean. And for the sake of our warming world and irreplaceable species, there should never be.

A retired baby boomer, fiercely independent, feminist, author, gardener, be here now proponent, funny, see's the good in everyone, political activist for the disabled and environment, writer to politicians, letters to the editor, counter culture lifestyle, Willamette Valley and Eugene lover
Introduction
I came West from the mid west in the early 1980's planning on coming back but as life sometimes does, a new path opened up before me. I love Oregon and especially the Willamette valley which is part of the temperate rain forest, sheltered by the Pacific we rarely see snow.  I worked nearly ten years as a forester all over Oregon and New Mexico doing timber stand inventories.  I lived in a tent with a group of mismatched vagabonds who taught me how to cruise timber and how to exist in the wild. Then I worked 35 years in service to the disabled and loved every minute of it.  I published three novels "From the Waters's of Coyote Springs" taken part from my journals when I lived in a tent doing timber surveys near Joseph Oregon, and "Felix and Eve" based in Gold Beach on the southern coast of Oregon, i lived a summer with an elderly man who was recovering from heart bi-pass surgery, our two completely different lifestyles kept it interesting and humorous, a set in his ways man and a live in the moment woman.  He told of the days when he worked for the notorious gangster Al Capone. "The thrid book "The Arrangement" is based in Eugene, a retired baby boomer now settles down and buys a house, a friend lives in his yurt in her back yard.  Once a year after they attend The Country Fair she travels to Catalina Island to visit an old friend and they relive the days of the counter culture generation. all three books are available onsmashwords.com/amazon.com/barnesandnoble.com, which can be read on e device or downloaded to a computer.
I spend my days gardening, writing another novel, doing activism for people with disabilities and writing my congress men and women. I enjoy the company of a wonderful friend who I've been roommate to for 22 years, keeping to my motto, "No more dogs or husbands"
Bragging rights
Lived in some of the most remote wilderness in Oregon and New Mexico. I published three novels, I survived two divorces, I lived on a farm in WI and survived some of the most hostile winters imaginable, keeping warm with wood heat. I survived a few mid-life crisis's. I always landed on my feet and found good people wherever I went.
