San Pedro River….

Being on the road since the first of November has been fun, adventurous and, at times, amayzing! However, I miss my women friends, yoga classes, the accessibility of Trader Joe’s AND my hairdresser.
So there are days that I struggle to remain centered and present in the day. Prayer and meditation helps, so do frequent calls, Facebook and email also helps with adjustmenting my attitude. I perserve!
The fun part is learning about the history of a specific area – I have learned factos that my grade school history teacher never ever mentioned. Example would be that Wyatt Earp – that bastion of justice and law enforcement married Sadie Jo, a prostitute working at the Bird Cage Theatre/Bordello. Now that wasn’t part of any history lesson I had as a child. The photo above shows a picture of Sadie Jo, Wyatt (lower right) her “ill fame” license which Earp had signed and Sadie’s nude photo for her former ‘live-in lover’ Sheriff Behan.
I have no judgement on her morals – prostitution was legal in those days. While I personally wouldn’t work in the business, I feel that making it legal today would insure the health of the women, possibly insure legal age requirements to work, leave the justice system open to more violent crimes to prosecute and states where it was legal, such as Nevada, would have the ability to tax it, thus creating more revenue for their currently strapped budgets. And it just might help with the illegal sex trafficking issue that is so rampant today. And it would stop law enforcement from focusing just on the women they arrest, which could be called harassment or profiling.
Just some thoughts. The wind continues to blow and we are getting ourselves ready to blow out with it.
