Which is the second sex?
Is female an incomplete male,
Or male an incomplete female?
Before the invention of sex
Cells reproduced by simply
Dividing into duplicates of themselves.
But which came first, She or He?
To ask is nonsense. Like Yin and Yang
From Tao, they arise into being together.
Bob Wertzler is retired from almost twenty years in the mental health field in California and Arizona. There are times the title, “Recovering Therapist”, seems to fit. In 2006 he retired to move to Western North Carolina to help and become primary care giver for his father who had developed Dementia. Before all that, there was work at various times as a soldier (US Army 1967-70), community organizer, cab driver, welfare case worker, wooden toy maker, carpenter, warehouse worker, and other things. He relates to a line in a Grateful Dead song, “What a long, strange trip its been.”
