A Question
The State of California is among the latest to legalize assisted death. I spoke with a friend about it last night.  What did I think of being given the right to die, should my condition be one I knew would most certainly end in a painful, debilitating, or g...

Too Soon Gone
Yesterday afternoon, my friend Mikey passed away. There is no doubt in my mind where he is now. Michael was a strong Christian who shared his faith with anyone who had the great honor to know him. I first met him in the basement of the pastor's house. I was...

One Hot Mama
Dear Doc recently started me on a small dose of plant-based estrogen. I started taking it because I was sick to death of sweating buckets at the drop of a hat, and having the same argument over the thermostat night after night. If it isn't 72 degrees or low...

I Left My Heart on Oahu
One month ago we were in Hawaii. By rights I should have written as soon as we returned home, but I just couldn't bring myself to do it. It's as if the physical act of writing would signal the end of our time there. If I share the photos and what we did, it...
