But, this post is not about me, but rather about the REAL DR. DOUG.
On a recent trip to Big Bend Country, we stopped by to hang out on the Terlingua Ghost Town Porch where Dr. Doug often holds 'office hours.' We grabbed a beer and headed to the porch, and as our good fortune would have it, the Doctor was in. There were two guys playing guitar and singing, a fellow from Missouri on a Harley road trip, and a couple of other locals - plus the four of us. It was 104 in the shade, but we spent some time listening to the music and the wisdom being dispensed.
Be sure to go to Dr. Doug's Web Page here, and browse around - entertaining. As his sub-title states, "Dr. Doug's Mental Health Clinic - Guided Group Therapy on the Terlingua Ghost Town Porch." And I guess this pretty his mission statement:
Welcome to my Wide Open Mental Health Clinic here on the High Sierra porch! Just go through that door over there and the nurse will provide your favorite ice-cold medicine for a small fee.
Come back here with your medicine and find a place on one of those benches. I'll guide you through this group therapy session, and I guarantee you will feel better very soon.
Now tell me... What do you think of the view from this porch... Did you know Terlingua is the world's largest open air insane asylum? Yes, and I'm the only mental therapist in this entire borderland region, as far as the eye can see when sitting on this mountain. This is a task no other therapist will do, a fate of unending hardships.
But I'll do it, so let's get started. Do you love your mother? Is there something bothering you? How does that make you feel? I may be able to help you.
My advice is... Live free, take your medicine, and be very, very happy.
Hey, look over there... What a babe!
