Heloise here: BC writer.
Fort Worth, it ain’t Paris. But since I am here it’s all good.
I write about race, culture and biology because I hold an M.A. in sociocultural anthropology. I began with the study of historical archeology (slave archeology in particular) but now have moved into the Anthropology of Consciousness. Here’s a link to the SAC. This anthropology covers areas like rebirth/reincarnation as well as the different ways of knowing. You might say that people like Helena Petrovna Blavatsky started the society.
Heloise holds a B.S. in biology. A born politico, with French as second language.
Heloise is all about writing. She has been writing since she could walk practically–just kidding. I began my literary journey writing poems. Then kept journals for over 30 years. These I gleaned to recover past life memories. My past life as a president makes me eminently qualified to write and talk trash about politics and politicos who make the news.
When I began writing liberal political articles–I had no idea how much my idioms would become part of the culture and media lingo. That’s part of my karma. I do hot yoga, jog, walk, bicycle, write, travel and fix up my historic home. I am an avid reader of historical biographies, hagiography, and nonfiction.
Chicago Is my home town but I live in Texas now and love it. I’ve been all over Texas except for out western part. I visit Austin often, my ex still lives there. I have lived in California, New Orleans, New York state, and downstate Illinois. My sister lives walking distance from the Obama home in Hyde Park (He’s in Kenwood). She went to the inauguration sans ticket and ended up sitting on the dais.
Obama has traced many of my steps in Chicago, both politically and culturally. Hyde Park was home and stomping grounds for us and naturally that included the U. of Chicago. It is so amazing that the first black president, probably the only one, would come from Chicago. These days he is maligned as a socialist. I think communist is closer descriptor based on what his mother was into. In fact, on my trip to Austin I noticed a huge billboard with a photo of Obama and the caption read “Socialist, by conduct” ouch.
I blogged for Obama for one reason, he was the best the Dems and the GOP had going. When Romney did not get the nod, I sure as hell was not going to see McCain win. I get Palin and the GOP now. Not because I’ve written and reviewed her book but because I get citizen takeover of government and want to see it happen in this country.
