The “purple hand” was an early symbol of the gay liberation movement and an effort to show resilience in the face of anti-gay attacks. The term originates from Oct 31st 1969 when activists protested the San Francisco Examiner’s series of anti-gay articles by protesting in front of the building. Employees of the newspaper dumped purple ink on the peaceful protesters. The activists used the ink to draw slogans on the building and to make a visible mark of gay uprising.
I mourned this dude for 17 days and 17 long nights. He passed under the cherry moon, and the mystery and pure genius of him will mesmerize, enchant and be a provocateur for people for centuries to come, a true legend, and we got to experience his presence. Enjoy the afterlife Prince. <3

So wear your hemp shirts, skirts, and shoes … create art about hemp or even better using hemp products….change your social networking photos to a pro hemp image and/or write a post about about industrial hemp, link to sites that promote hemp knowledge and industrial hemp products.
Emerald City Comic Con starts today and will be happening throughout the weekend. In my opnion it’s fun to step outside the box from time to time and be an alter-ego of sorts, happily surprise others with your unexpected daring, fun, playful, & bold perspectives and actions. That is how I see events like these, a way to stay in touch with the magic of our youth that was imagination. This is just me for a weekend, at high noon on Monday I return back to my more familiar self.
This year we decided to go to the Christmas lighting festival in Leavenworth Washington. It always looks so magical, the Bavarian themed village deep in the snow capped mountains on the northwest. Thanks to mother nature, my skills in finding an enjoyable private condo with all the extra amenities one could want, and the christmas spirit that leavenworth has, it was a true winter wonderland experience & great memory.
