About Me:
I am an 82-year-old curmudgeon; I like the 1500s spelling best and definition:
"An ill-tempered (and frequently old) person full of stubborn ideas or opinions."
I evolved from faith in superstition to behavioral scientist. I am a mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, a survivor of breast cancer thanks to the fine diagnostic work and treatment at Spokane's Providence Health & Services and Cancer Care Northwest, which included surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. Dreadful stuff, but a wake up to living each and every minute.
Life is meant to remember the past, live in the present and remember a preferred future. One can be good without god! My family demonstrates it.
I bring to my community a worldliness that challenges attitudes and norms of a parochial and insular power structure. I traveled to 32 nations in the Western, Eastern, Northern and Southern Hemispheres interviewing women about their family and work lives, their health care, education, social structure, child and elder care, depression, and anxiety, and family violence. I had to be subtle when seeking information about violence. People do not like to reveal their vulnerabilities.

Winter Solstice offers a time to look back on the past year to acknowledge my challenges and the things I chose to do to solve those problems. This recent past year was a very hard one for me with the death of my oldest son, Cary, a victim of cancer at the young age of 53 years and one month. This loss turned out to be harder on me than I imagined. Thankfully, Craig and Laura and their families walked these dark days with me. 

After wallowing in that pain I turn my attention to the…

Part 4 Booms and busts punctuate the history of capitalism; it is a systemic problem.

Part 4 Booms and busts punctuate the history of capitalism; it is a systemic problem.

Remember General Motors, producer of automobiles? Over the last thirty years, General Motors created a subsidiary called GMAC, General Motors Acceptance Corporation. It is a bank. It lends money. It began by lending money to people to buy cars because their wages couldn’t pay for them. Then GMAC discovered they could make more money off the interest of the loan than they could make…

Part 3  We reached the limits of the kinds of capitalism this society can endure.  

Turning, now, to the big business community, the last thirty years have been spectacular. Everything about the working class, with the introduction of computers, U.S. workers became more and more productive. We had a thirty-year period of rising labor productivity. Each year the worker produces more, and the wages stayed the same. 

The gap between what the workers…

Joan,  you sound like your usually sharp witted,  smiling self. I'm happy about that. I'm adjusting. I've just gone through the worst year of my life but I'm coming out the other side now. We had one long wet winter. It started raining the last week of November and didn't stop ( unless it was to snow) until about three weeks ago. I thought I was going to lose my mind. I rarely left the house. I Didn't  leave the house unless I had to.

Hi Joan,  I was just scanning through and saw where you had posted for Carl. So he's still missing ?  I too hope he's safe and sound. 

And how are you doing dear friend? Well it appears and your garden is lovely. Kathy

Joan,

Wow did I have some very negative experiences. The eighties was not the time to let people know you didn’t believe in god. I had troubles with girlfriends, and all friends. I was popular in College. I was a DJ, but many people tried to get me to convert. Told me I was going to hell. Some fights even. I know Taekwondo so no problems there. It’s getting better every decade. Finding the millennial’s are non-believers. I think I came out too early. It caused me a lot of problems. It’s ashamed. I just don’t know, but I know I don’t believe in a 2,000 year old book. Thanks for letting me in. I will maybe set up a blog.

Doug Monka

GoodMorning, Joan. Thank you for the welcome. I’m embarrassed to admit, but I just figured out how to reply & can’t find the comment from the email. I will have to figure out how to use this site. Im excited to meet new like minded people,

Thanks for the welcome, Joan. It often seems to be the case that fantasies and delusions encroach more severely upon one's mind as one ages, especially those fantasies pertaining to "life everlasting". But for me, the opposite has been true. I'm much less tolerant of delusion now than I was when I was young. At least, I think I am. I wouldn't really know, would I? :-(

Thank you Joan :)

Joan, despite a change looks, your smile is the same. And, of course, your insights and wisdom continues to shine through your comments. Stick with us. Losing Daniel was hard enough. We'd hate to lose you. What Loren said about you goes for me.

At 11:17pm on November 19, 2017, Ruth Anthony-Gardner said…

Well you're my favorite curmudgeon, Joan.
