The Mind Alive (Billings) Just your typical mid-20’s guy surfing through life gathering all the knowledge and experience that I can. Life is full of beauty and I am fascinated every day by those around me, nature, and almost everything else. I hope to bring something to the table with my occasional writings… there is just too much going on in this head of mine and I must get some of it out.
Montana RiverRat survives on a few things: Montana Summers, Montana Beer and Montana Politics. RiverRat will blog about state and local politics and campaigns, with an occasional hint of pop-culture thrown in for good measure.
Timber Venard (Billings) is “just a light-hearted chap with an opinion”. Most often tongue in cheek, but occasionally serious! Check out his other blog at timbersmorningcoffee.blogspot.com
Bobbie Zenker (Helena) is the author of the book, TransMontana: A Memoir of Transformation in Body, Mind & Spirit.
TransMontana is the story of transition from a male, popularly elected public official to modern, professional woman. Robert Zenker was a married man and father of two, boxed in the psychologically complicated, emotionally taut web of secrecy, shame, fear, doubt and ambiguity of self of a transsexual deeply in denial. Roberta inhabited that body and all the accoutrements of the life of a man in Montana for nearly fifty years before her transition from man to woman in 2007.
The remarkable story of her emerging from her box is a complex, courageous and sometimes dangerous journey involving not only physical transition, but also alcohol recovery and the result of both – a spiritual transformation. Bobbie is now a beloved daughter and supportive friend to many women.
