    No Excuse For Me

    It's Not Deliberate

    Clinical depression and an aversion to washing seem to go hand in hand- its not that i dont like or want to be clean- rather, personal hygiene takes a back seat to just being able to get through each day- which is exhausting, mentally, spiritually and physically. Sometimes my...

    Mental Rose

    I've never liked taking a shower, for as long as I can remember. I don't think it's because I am lazy...I just think I could be using my free time in a better way. It doesn't relax me...and neither does a bath. I wash my hands obsessively throughout the day, so I ...

    On Active Duty

    And actually it was many more, but who remembers. When we got back to the world, and were able to take a shower, i recall thinking, oh god yes, the body says thank you very much. I will never know how we did it back then. Now, i sometimes shower 3 times a day.

    Hippies

    Now I've only done this once, but it was almost liberating.  And In due circumumstances, it works. This happened at the 2004 California Rainbow Gathering when there were 40,000 hippies in the woods.  There were some showers people set up but I was 16 and wanted to...

    I'm Sure I Did..
