My dope ride

If any of you follow Facebook or Twitter, you've seen that someone hit my car on Saturday. I was at an end-of-the-season rowing party at a friend's house, Aithne parked on the residential street out front. I came out to find the front bumper damn-near torn off, but also, amazingly, a note on the windshield with the other driver's name and contact info. Turns out he's a neighbor of my rowing friend, and was totally excellent about giving me his insurance information and following up to make sure that the company was doing it's job. Everyone I tell this to exclaims about how unheard of that is for what could have been a hit-and-run, and I agree. There's a lesson there: don't be an asshole. If you hit someone, take responsibility for it. If you don't it'll revisit you later.

So, despite the hassle, it's going as well as an accident can, and I dropped the car off this morning to get the damage repaired (all covered by his insurance, btw). Enterprise, to quote the commercial, "came and picked me up" and hooked me up with a Kia Rondo like the one pictured above. Not a bad little ride, and certainly better than I was expecting (and also paid for by insurance). She's no Aithne, but I'm just so glad not to have a hiccup in my insanely busy schedule for the next week or so because, as you know, The Doss has no time for public buses.

Hello everyone!

As you know, herbs or natural medicines are part of the Native way. They are used for cleansing, finding balance, connecting with Mother Earth and the Creator, expressing gratitude, etc. As well as healing ailments in a natural way.

As a mental health professional, I absolutely understand that at times, medication is essential. healing secretsEssential to balance one’s biochemistry for example. I have and do take medication at times as well but when possible, I would rather use what Mother Earth gives us.
