A Poem

I wonder what it’s like to be—

Vietnam (2010)

I wonder what it’s like to be—

To be faithless;

To have no god

To try and live up to;

To never let divinity down,

To never be less than made whole.

I wonder if I were born—

Born in another era or nation,

What gods would I serve,

And would I be the same?

I consider what the world would be—

A world where there was never a me,

A being of words, of letters, of books and passions,

An expression without a thought to voice.

My mind is open to—

To all the possibilities,

To be less than who I am,

To what I can’t believe,

To not feel, to not think, to not hold dear,

To be less than made whole.

I could not see—

See what good that would be

For you or for me.

LITTLE HOMETOWN, AMERICA

“The American novelist CG FEWSTON tells a satisfying tale, bolstered by psychology and far-ranging philosophy, calling upon Joseph Campbell, J. D. Salinger, the King James Bible, and Othello.”

“In this way, the author lends intellectual heft to a family story, exploring the ‘purity’ of art, the ‘corrupting’ influences of publishing, the solitary artist, and the messy interconnectedness of human relationships.”

This is my good friend, Nicolasa (Nico) Murillo, CRC, who is a professional chef & a wellness mentor. I’ve known her since childhood & I’m honored to share her story with you. In life, we all have ups & downs, some far more extreme than others. Much like in Canada, in America, the legalization of marijuana has become a national movement, which includes safe & legal access to cannabis (marijuana) for therapeutic use & research for all.

“This is a wellness movement,” Nico explains. The wellness movement is focused on three specific areas: information, encouragement, & accountability.

In these stressful & unprecedented times, it makes good sense to promote & encourage the state or condition of being in good physical & mental health.

To learn more you can visit: Americans For Safe Access & Texans for Safe Access, ASA (if you are in Texas).

The mission of Americans for Safe Access (ASA) is to ensure safe and legal access to cannabis (marijuana) for therapeutic use and research.

TEXANS FOR SAFE ACCESS ~ share the mission of their national organization, Americans for Safe Access (ASA), which is to ensure safe and legal access to cannabis (marijuana) for therapeutic use and research, for all Texans.

Stay safe & stay happy. God bless.
