Synesthesia

Synesthesia – the crossing and merging of two senses, like color and sounds, is an interesting phenomenon. Some manifestations are more common or others[1]; these are essentially a breakdown of what would normally be subconscious processing. This isn’t that rare; some forms of synesthesia are in ~2% of the population. So far 54 different types…

Million Dollar Baby

This morning I listened to a pediatrician and medical intensivist talk about the ethics of spending a couple of million dollars for one baby with a one-of-a kind (very rare) disease, in this case a neuromuscular disorder limiting normal breathing ability.  These babies might receive a series of doses, some intrathecally, (meaning they stick a…

A Plea for Modesty

This is my news reaction to taking down, yet another, prominent man- this time New York governor Coumo[1]. Now this guy is (a tad) imperious. He comes from a “Because I Can" (https://drjenwyman-clemons.com/2020/12/26/because-i-can/) background, and may have royalty in his genes. Either way his family learned to govern and he has successfully done so for…

How I met my Love Angel (L.D.#0)

Looking back, about –it seems like every time I receive massage or similar service, I feel like I give back to the relationship to the point that I’m often a little emotionally drained. Even though ostensibly, I am receiving (and paying for) a “relaxing” therapy. That tends to happen when someone has his or her…

Wherever we are now

Wherever we are now We can have happiness, As children will find moments to play – Even among ruins of war; While they live in the present moment. Some of them play king of the hill, Others play with snakes and insects. The lucky ones will have dollies, paints, and Tonka trucks instead. Yes it…

Careless Speech

With free speech, the person with the most power gets to say them. Those with purse strings, consciously choose what is said during airtime. For that reason, “Free speech” is really a misnomer, I really wish they’d “fix” the First Amendment. Hold your tongue if you know what’s good for you. Reread the Old Testament book of Sirach, It doesn’t mince words! Speaking out of turn or rank, the weaker one will suffer.

Deformity (Geb 2)

Deformity – that which is away, de-, from form. The “form” is construct of manifestation, the shape or quality of a thing or being as it relates to function- what it does. For a human, as your presented self is often compared to the beauty of those before you, or at least, if you're beautiful…

“Because I can”

“Because I can[1]…” There are many things I can’t fathom, nor would want to. The cruelty that people inflict on each other… for some momentary victory, that might leave a bunch of fallout, seems astounding. It’s like watching pigs rutting out in their pen, after eating their young.  Why would someone purposely harm a child…

My Thanksgiving story

I started with the expectation of Thanksgiving set by my Aunt Judy (bless her heart). Thanksgiving, even with its historical controversy was, besides Easter, my favorite holiday! Every year there were around thirteen growing to twenty of us a mostly congenial group. With a beautiful formal table with china, crystal, and silver, we’d have like…
