Although I have been writing about and covering various political and social issues for years, this is my first time to actually get out there and run for something. That said, if you happen to live in Alabama Congressional District #5, I would appreciate your vote, in the upcoming Democratic Primary, for Delegate to the 2016 Democratic National Convention.

One thing I always loved about my older friends and members of the community was that they knew so much, and you could learn things from them. I always looked forward to being that kind of older. It could be that I am right near that kind of older now.
One learns many things in the course of their career, and living too actually.

It's an online political rag and things do get lively.
Although I have spent much of my life writing and involved in various activist causes, for most of that time, I have also, or perhaps as much as possible, tended to avoid writing directly about political hot button issues. I am over it. Although seeing as one of my early beefs with such was being expected to tow a political line, when it came to such, I was a lost cause. I am completely capable of having folks on both sides mad at me. Needless to say, when confronted with the possibility of writing for a political rag, I stepped carefully, but I did finally step, wrote with them for a while. We're still friends, but most of my upcoming related is going to be on my own blog. If you take a notion, check out my past political writing, Regina Garson at Forward Progressives.
Magic Stream is a multi-faceted literary e-zine, mental health, self-help and wellness resource. The primary focus is on personal growth and the universal in human emotion. With a mind/body focus, emotional fitness is approached in much the same way as physical fitness and very frequently in a like manner, since the two are so inextricably related.
Among the earliest online self-help resources, I started Magic Stream in 1994. All considered, I was pretty slow bringing the site onto Facebook, but a Magic Stream Community Page is the most recent Magic Stream upgrade. Check it out.
Writing a Research Paper Presentation
A while back, I spoke on "Writing a Research Paper" to one of the English Classes at Virginia College. I taught there for right at five years, so it was a lot of fun to go back and visit.
