I am a registered Democrat... but feel at this point we are in such trouble we need to unite this country and start living compassionately before we destroy the plane and eachother. I am a pacifist.... but believe in social justice through peaceful means. I play a mean blues guitar for 36 years and love people. I have courage, articulate steadiness and lost my fear years ago... comes with humble suffering and transcendence. I'm no stranger to hard work.
