About Me

My photo

I am a mystic madman, a wandering wildman, scholar of esoterica, dilettante sadhu, dready-headed hippie (only have a few jata on the back of my head right now, though more be forming of this third set of knotted hair), gentle yogi, fierce foe of falsity. I was a preacher, but I renounced that. I was married, but she renounced me. I was a grad student at one of the top universities in the world on my way to becoming a professor, but I realized they taught lies there too. I am protector of souls, lover of mountains, smoker of herb, fond of hot springs, oceans and lakes and rivers and rain and sunshine, devotee of Devi.

Henry Ford's Hemp Car


Yes indeed, the first to mass-produce automobiles developed a hemp car, built of hemp resin and wheat. Unfortunately, Ford was an anti-semite and Nazi sympathizer. This does not detract from the significance of the fact that America's first major automobile producer developed a prototype car made of the plant that may well be one of the most important factors in saving our forests, reducing dependence on petroleum, and helping create an environmentally friendly economy.

Hooray for hemp!!!
And yeah for marijuana, too!!!
