Hey, Mitch McConnell. It's against my moral and ethical standards to provide lifetime health care benefits to Congress members who try to impose their own religious voodoo on the constituency they are elected to represent. And I am your employer.

And all of you anti-birth control Christian fundamentalists and Catholics out there who have reached 40 or beyond and only had two or three kids—don't try to tell us you didn't use birth control. If you've got nine kids by 50 you can talk, although you probably shouldn't.

My friend +Michael Reddell has a newsletter for artists that I subscribe to. It is five dollars a month. What a deal. His mission along with his wife Peggy is to motivate artists in unique ways. We started talking about a month ago because he was interested in the e-book I am working on, 'Marketing for Daydreamers.' It resonated with him.

As artists, we can't think in terms of plans and outlines, but more as an edge walking life of inspiration. For me, the public school system put out the fire in my soul. It was really bad news for me growing up. I went through the same disillusionment with online marketing training. I should have known. I should have seen it for what it was, but I didn't.

Anyway, Michael shared this Ted Talk in one of his newsletters today. Sir Ken Robinson is on the leading edge of reforming the educational system. He gets it. He gets the problems. He is a great thinker and creative of our time. I have seen his other Ted Talk about how the educational system is broken.

Michael's newsletter is called Outside the Lines and is an offshoot of Windhook, his website and his 50 some acre plot of land that he dreams of making into an artists retreat. What a wonderful dream.

They share interviews with successful artists and other great bits of information every Sunday. Here is a link to the Windhook website where you can find out more about their newsletter and what they are all about http://www.windhook.net/who.shtml .

They are giving away copies of Sir Ken Robinson's book The Element, so please let Michael or Peggy know that I referred you. But my reasons for promoting their newsletter go further than a free book. It is more about education reform. Which is a topic that is very near and dear to my heart. The educational system seems to be slanted. As I said, my experience with the public educational system was not a good one. Anyway, my rant and plug for the day. I think their newsletter has a worthy cause. I will do what I can to support their mission.

Happy Holidays everybody! We will be traveling today. A good time for journaling. Enjoy your holiday and your end of the year squirrel gathering. Namaste - Nicole~

This does not surprise me. Furthermore, any perceived benefits from ingesting pollen as a nutritional supplement are of the placebo variety, since pollen is encapsulated, and passes through the digestive tract unchanged and undigested.

On a closely related note, the best preventive for anaphylaxis from bee stings is to get stung several times a year starting BEFORE you have a reaction. Anaphylactic allergies to bees are almost entirely caused by exposure to inhaled bee protein without accompanying stings. The risk of anaphylaxis in the general population is 1/10,000, but in the population of people who are exposed to bees regularly (breathing traces of bee protein) but not getting stung, the risk spikes up to 1/60. Beekeepers who get stung don't generally get anaphylaxis but their non-beekeeping (unstung) relatives do. I don't know if stings would protect from pollen induced anaphylaxis but I suspect so, since there is definitely going to be bee protein in any pollen samples from a bee hive.

Story
Introduction
Here are some keywords that should give you some ideas about me: beekeeper, artist, sculptor, life drawing, writer, foundry, Ekhart Tolle, Terence McKenna, Frank Zappa, Joseph Campbell.

I spent 10 years in the metal trades in Seattle, and 13 years as a technical writer in the Silicon Valley prior to making the leap to the full time pursuit of art.
Throughout that time I was raising 3 kids and hanging around the margins of the art world, knowing all the while that art was where I belonged. In 2001 I began working with my wife on development of an artists’ retreat in San Luis Obispo county that we call Windhook. That work is ongoing, and consumes most of the time that I am not in the studio.
In 2002, I left technical writing and the world of salaries and trading-life-for-money to entirely devote my time to the pursuit of my artistic vision and the Windhook project. At times since then, my efforts have been consumed by Windhook planning and construction tasks, and at times I have focused more exclusively on sculpture.
