About me

Gender MALE
Industry Agriculture
Occupation Vegetable Grower, Dad, Tata, and major freakin' freak from the 60's.
Location Tucson, Arizona, United States
Introduction This is my virtual space where I allow myself, now 50 years walking on this earth, to share inspirations, communications, stories, and images from plant angels I have known and loved, and that have known and loved me. Mainly I grow stuff. I love to look at, eat, smoke, and learn about what I grow. I cook, and play chess with my 7 year old boy every day. I enjoy being with any of my 5 kids and 3 granddaughters and sometimes other people. A life-long psychoactivist, I believe that plants are here to clothe, feed, heal, and teach us. I am a member of the Native American Church where I participate and serve officer functions regularly. Actually, I believe that life is a ceremony. The ceremonial acts of making food, making love, and making prayers are what got us and keep us here. I am a big fan of Jesus- not the one they keep strung up on a cross who's mad at people for being human, the one who's in each living thing and whose Love makes us live.
