Washing that man right out of our hair

I am currently saying “good riddance“ to the psychiatric medical model as a way of thinking about the pain in my life. That model has been disastrous to me personally – and I think has also been disastrous to many other people.

The other day, I created a new Spotify playlist – to dance how happy I am to be free of the invidious role that psychiatry has played in my life.

As I was dancing, I realized that I was also celebrating how happy I am to be free of a particular politician who has been so destructive to the life of our country.

The playlist is an awful lot of fun. I encourage you to dance it and join me – and the rest of the country – in celebrating that we have a chance, finally to start over.

At just 12 songs so far, the playlist is also not yet finished. I welcome all your suggestions about songs that help you dance your happiness at the end of this godforsaken last four years.

These days all of my identities are converging: whether I am offering a blessing in the grocery store checkout line, offering a prayer in a poem or experiencing the kinship with all life while walking my or a client's dog - it's all the same. It's all Life.
