I take my place, an arm’s length distance from each lady on both sides of me. We are to line up by height and I think I should be before Prem Siri Kaur but her turban is such a smokestack it makes her about an inch taller than me. I am twelve years old. “Eyes, […]

Winter Solstice has just passed so I thought I’d share with you what I remember of the one time in our thirty-five years of being in 3HO that my husband and I journeyed to Florida for the Solstice Celebration. It was 1974. ***** The Times I am 23, married for two years and seven months […]

The history that I know… “February is Black History Month.” I heard it on the news this morning. I have considered this and it has thus occurred to me I ought to write the history that I know. I don’t recall ever having seen a black person, at least up close, until I was five […]

A KWTC Veteran Reminisces about Marching (mid 1970s) “Who are those people and why do you have pictures of them?” Those people being women dressed in army fatigues with complete camouflage make up.
