Happy 2010!

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 11:41 am

Looking out at the brilliant sunshine from my desk here in Osterville, Massachussetts, I want one thing and one thing only…  to wish whoever may be out there listening a blessed New Year with the highest of high on your side.  The best days for this country are ahead of us, albeit not what you may think…we must learn to Love again, all of our brothers.   In order to find those days, we must look within ourselves, for we are ALL ONE.  Please be safe in that knowledge and as you look to your brother or sister, do not hate them for their shortcomings–we all reflect eachother and when we see no enemy, than the whole concept of “enemy” ceases to exist…for it was an illusion to begin with.  May the PEACE, JOY, and LOVE that is YOU shine all year long and realize that seeing it in another is seeing it in yourself…  Go in Peace~ M

All the People

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 3:05 pm

On a calm, sunny Cape Cod day, I sit in my bedroom watching, “Mrs. Doubtfire”, a genius film starring Robin Williams, circa ~1994. Awaiting the dawn of 2010 after a tumultuous decade that has passed us by, we may all be wondering what is next?  Is there hope?  Is there LOVE?  Robin Williams, in the film, is a divorcee who loves his kids, his wife, his home, and his career.  He is met with fate when he meets the owner of a small San Francisco television station, where he transforms a tired, twenty five year old program.  Injecting it with, ironically, Dinosaurs from a far gone millennium, bringing the present human condition into a healing that only the timelessness of Love can provide.  Watching his effort to bring back his Love into his children’s Life, whom he says, “he needs more than air”, only accentuates the Truth of what the miracle of Love really IS.  To quote Robin, “But ladies and gentlemen, put your claws together and please welcome MR. James Browntasoraus–”I eat wood, it tastes good, no meat, big feet, I eat wood…”  The man who hired him asks, “what can we do to improve the ratings on the morning kid’s tv show?”  Robin responds,  ” bottom line, don’t patronized kids.  If it is something that you enjoy, they would enjoy.”  Fast forward to Robin’s brilliant statement about the plight of our planet, and then jump into the real deep message imbedded in his final word…that goes something like this…”Dear Mrs. Doubtfire, two months ago my mom and dad decided to seperate, now they live in seperate houses, my brother Andrew says we won’t be family anymore.  Is this true?  Did I lose my family? Is there anything I can do to put my parents back together?”  Sincerely, Kattie McCormack

“Oh dear Kattie, you know some parents when they’re angry, they get along much better when they don’t live together, they don’t fight all the time, and they can become better people, and much better mummies and daddies for you.  Sometimes they get back together…and sometimes they don’t dear.  And if they don’t, don’t blame yourself.  Just because they don’t love eachother anymore, doesn’t mean they don’t love you.  There are all sorts of families Kattie…some families have one mommy, some families have one daddy or two families, and some families live with their uncle or aunt, and some live with their grandparents or some live with foster parents, and some live in separate homes in seperate neighborhoods, in different areas of the country, and may not see eachother for days, weeks, months or even years at a time.  But if there is LOVE dear, THOSE ARE THE TIES THAT BIND…and you will always have a family in your heart–forever. All my love to you puppet…you are going to be alright…Bye Bye>”  May the peace of God be with you always.  Peace~M

Saint Andrew’s of Hyannisport

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 9:02 am

A few moments ago, on this Christmas Eve morning that I want to wish all of my friends and family the best upon, the Senate of the United States of America passed an historic health care bill 60-39… GOD BLESS the United States of America.  There were many heroes in this fight, that seemed to last forever, but one stands out as a titan of humor and grace–Al Franken (D, MN).  I last met with Al Franken in Vail, Colorado with a good friend of mine and our dog, an English Mastiff (apricot), at a little known place called the “Red Lion”.  It is appropriate at this moment in “time”, as I sit at my desk here in Osterville, Massachusetts watching the gentle snow fall upon the lights of Christmas and think about the “Last Lion of the Senate”, Teddy Kennedy, and how his entire life was spent in the pursuit of helping people who needed it the most.  His church, St. Andrews in Hyannisport, only a few doors down the road from where I sit, was sparkling the other day I took this shot.  The sun was out in full glory and the dragons that you may be able to make out from this particular picture, seemed to call out and say, “let’s get this done”… words Teddy used to get his colleagues and constituents fired up about a cause too important for the befuddled form of communication that words often embody.  Merry Christmas, dear sir Lion, and may God always be with you…your work in the United States Senate for over a decade has made this Christmas paramount for millions of American citizens who will now have the opportunity to get well.  You can’t ask for a better Christmas present than that.  God Bless you ALL.  Peace~ M

Charlie Brown’s Tree

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 11:55 am

At the risk of sounding upset at a comment made by the “gang of three” idiots ( James, “mountain”, Inhofe, R, OK, and most notably Mark Barrasso (R, WY), who traveled all the way to Copenhagen, Denmark to tell the world that global warming is a hoax, I had to make a point for one of the greatest Presidents we have ever had in this country of ours, Jack Kennedy.  It was said, yesterday, as the Senate passed a windfall health care bill “for the American people”, by a man who needs no introduction, Mr., “I am no Jack Kennedy”, Barrasso of the great state of Wyoming, that if alive, President Kennedy would have been opposed to a health care bill for same country, a country that he championed in the early 1960’s…further to his moronic point, Mr. Barrasso, and at this juncture anything that is said by the party of NO is by definition moronic, stated this on the year we lost one of the greatest true leaders on The PEOPLES HEALTH in the United States of America, Jack’s brother, Teddy Kennedy…  One has to look no further than this, if one is to know the TRUTH about these jackals in Washington who are no more than used car dealers selling a poor man a car that will be obsolete in the years of “Peak Oil” and it’s subsequent decline, thereby selling him not only a bill of “goods” but the keys to it as well…  to the men and women of the Senate of the United States of America– Snoopy is watching you, as well as our late President Kennedy…Charles Schultz had it right when he wrote, “A Charlie Brown Christmas”…it is not in the size of the tree, nor the propaganda therein, but, rather the very reason for the tree to begin with…LOVE…  Have a great Wednesday!     Peace~M

Savor the Season

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 10:11 am

A day after the blizzard that left over 2 feet of snow here in Osterville, Massachusetts, I bid you a fair adieu.  Greetings and salutations from Cape Cod and the Islands!  One of my Maine Coon Cats, “Sweetie”, is doing what we should all do during this time of year, savoring the beauty and grandeur of God’s creation…looking out at the purest of blue skies from my desk on this 21st day of December, melts the problems of the world away, if only for a moment, so that we might have the opportunity to see what really matters…the love of family and friends, the soft glow of a Christmas tree and the devilish grin of a cat that was bred from a lady in France, centuries ago– a Persian domesticated feline, bred with a wild bobcat from Newfoundland, Quebec, Canada…looking at “sweetie” here reminds me of the Snow Leopard indigenous to the Himalayas and the mysticism therein.  I hope you have a great Monday!  Peace~ M

“Looking down some childhood ally, searching for a sunset out across some sacred valley…this is my country, this is my home, and I know that when I sing these words, I am not alone.  It’s time to stop them in their tracks.  It’s time to get our country back, put their ideas in a sack…recycle for REDEMPTION…It’s time to show them to the door, they won’t be needed anymore, tell them there will be no more war…praised upon preemption…this is my country, this is my home.  This is my country, this is my home…can’t seem to get along with so many others…but the people of this land, they don’t want this fight…they seem to understand we are all brothers and sisters.”  Crosby, Stills and Nash Have a wonderful Saturday!  Peace~ M

Merry Christmas from Cape Cod and the Islands!  The talks at the world conference on global warming are coming to a conclusion today.  Not to be out done by men of great stature and wealth coming forth to express their infinite wisdom as to the fact that “global warming is the greatest hoax ever played upon the American people”…  How does Senator, and I use that term in the loosest of definitions, James, “all I want for Christmas is the middle name of mountain”, Inhofe (R,OK), have enough time to express anything but the complete and absolute disregard for a gift given to us by the CREATOR who created him to begin with?  Senator Inhofe has redefined the definition of ARROGANCE and GREED!  He is a paid representative of not only the oil cartel, but the insurance, banking and idiot cartel as well…..not to worry Mr. James, “I once was a mountain, but am now a destroyed oil shale in the middle of a desert that used to be called Oklahoma–a sad, pathetic sell out of seeping poison into the drinking water”, Inhofe…   for men like Keith Olberman, Ted Kennedy and the great activists who really do care about this fragile blue rock I call earth will be watching you…not only from the vantage point of ground zero, our planet, but from above, as you use God’s name in vain and spit upon his creation.  You are an abhorrent example of what is wrong with the very fabric of a country that was born of men like Thomas Jefferson, Thomas Paine, and Abraham Lincoln.  You are not fit to carry their jock strap, sir.  God Bless all of the good folks in the tiny hamlet of Denmark for making an effort.  I pray that the power that created this fiasco will come forward and make it right, recreating the MOUNTAINS and letting the faux molehills die in vain.  Have a nice week end!     Peace~ M

Polar Bear Wish

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 8:11 am

As the confusion and turmoil erupts in Copenhagen, Denmark today regarding the single most important issue facing the human race, with tens of thousands of protesters taking to the streets in the normally quiet Scandinavian city, it may be worthwhile to comprehend exactly what we are really talking about here…the preservation of PLANET EARTH.  With the debate now shifting to helping developing nations in new green technologies, world leaders are descending upon the small hamlet of Denmark.  From the United States of America, represented by President Barack Obama, to small developing countries like Maldives, whose leader proclaimed yesterday that if something is not truly done, his country will be “doomed”…it is clear to see that countries are more interested in their own individual jingoistic rights, as opposed to the fact that we are all in this together.  Global warming, or climate change, to the tune of the polar ice caps vanishing within five years, raising sea levels two to three feet, is not only going to affect wealthy nations, but more to the point, it will devastate poorer ones…forcing millions of refuges across “boarders” and putting more strain on an already overloaded system.  Like the health care crisis in this country, championed by heroes like Keith Olberman, the “banking industry, a.k.a. “Casino Royal”, or the crumbling economy bereft of jobs that last, not to mention the wars on foreign soil, the problems of the world will only be solved if we as a collective extension of GOD himself make the decision, for the good of all, to rectify it.  If you start with the TRUTH, and as William Shakespeare said over 500 years ago, “the truth shall set you free”, everything else follows suit. But the powers that be, at the moment, are not interested in doing any such thing.  The margin of profit is not bound by higher morals, attended by our higher selves, higher angels and higher authority…it is a blind shark, only interested in feeding at the expense of everything else in the ocean of life.  The world is now captive to these “powers”.  Yet everything changes, especially the wicked, for in the end LIGHT eliminates darkness, a darkness that has held onto to power for too long… Have a wonderful Thursday!  Peace~ M

Grinch’s revenge

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 8:44 am

Perhaps the question that has been asked was not the right one…why would the insurance cartel give up in their hour of need?  “Your a mean one, Mr. Grinch!” So says your dog.  Lieberman and the rest of the sell outs in the Senate of the United States of America have sealed their fate in history and for that we should take a moment of silence.  Yesterday, marked the end of any real health care reform in the United States of America– right in time for Christmas!  The good Senator from the state I grew up in, Connecticut, who has pushed everything from the Bush “doctrine” in Iraq, to the flip flop of his words regarding expanding medicare, a true government program for THE PEOPLE, to the TRUE TRANSPERENCY of Joe Lieberman, Inc., i.e. his shameful and abhorrent acceptance of monies from the insurance mob, while 80% of the citizens of Connecticut demanded some kind of reform to an obviously corrupt system–wolves in sheep’s clothing.  I say that, tongue in cheek, for wolves are a much nobler creature than Mr. Joe, “I wish I had a dime for every lie I told”, Lieberman…they don’t eat their young. Today is a sad day for men, I mean real men, like Keith Olberman of MSNBC’s “Countdown, with Keith Olberman”, who tirelessly worked on three free health clinics for the working poor in this nation (New Orleans, Little Rock, and Kansas City)…all done while his own father was sick in hospital.  God Bless the real SOULS of men like Keith, and the activists around this beautiful country of ours attempting the impossible, asking the GRINCH to give back “Cindy Loo Who’s” Christmas Tree!!!  Carma is a funny thing, almost as funny as Joe LIeberman’s jowles and jingles that fall like lies the Grinch told to that very representative, albeit animated metaphor, for what is really going on the America today.  The “liberal media” is anything but, as it is owned by corporations who can bend information at will, blinding good, hard working people who, and I will say it once again  in the immortal words of Jimmy Stewart in the classic truth called, “It’s a wonderful Life”, do most of the living and dying in this country.  Dr. Suess might ask Joe the questions, “are your shoes too tight, is your heart too small, or are you just another example of what greed and corruption can do to a small man like you…?”  I wish you all a blessed Wednesday!    Peace~ M

It’s a wonderful life

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 8:10 am

This is “Bailey”, a black lab who lives with the owner of Fancy’s Market here in Osterville. As you might recall, “George Bailey”, via the late, great Jimmy Stewart, was an honest business man in the town of “Bedford Falls”.  He ran a small savings and loan business in that town, building homes for the people of the community, or rather loaning them the money to build a home of their own– giving self respect back to the hard earning patrons of his town…his nemesis, “Mr. Potter” was an angry old man, with no love in his heart, or, as George Bailey’s father in the movie said, “he is a sick old man, sick in his soul, if he even has one…”  George Bailey represents the good that still exists in this country… where good, honest, hard working folks are trying to make heads or tails of a system that has taken advantage of the original framework of this United States of America, namely the Constitution, and wondering why the banking system, health care “system”, and the ambivalence to the pollution of our air, water and soil that goes on unabated, has failed us so miserably.  You may remember the ending, where Mr. Potter steals the money from “The Savings and Loan”, and yet, when faced with demoralization and scandal, George Bailey’s friends come to his rescue and GOOD triumphs in the end.  In the immortal words of James Stewart, “these people that you look down upon Mr. Potter, regardless of what you think of them, they are the ones who do most of the living and dying in this town, is it too much to ask that they have a decent roof over their heads?  My father didn’t think so.”  As we sail on into the Christmas season, let us all consider the fact that WE THE PEOPLE are the macrocosm of that immortal movie.  We deserve better than the sham we have been offered.  Have a nice Tuesday.  Peace~ M

Morning has broken

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 9:01 am

John Wayne said many moon ago that the new day begins one second after midnight…Greetings from Cape Cod and the Islands!  I hope you are well wherever you may be.  Dawn is a unique experience, as one realizes possibilities that may not have been recognized before.  The monumental issue of HEALTH CARE in the United States of America is one of those possibilities…unfortunately, and I quote one of the snakes in the insurance cartel, “we won”, as he spoke of the death of the “public option” that had become so watered down it tasted more like water than actual H2O.  Millions will suffer because of corporate greed and the politicians, much like P. Pilate himself, have sealed their own fate.  One must ponder the simple question, “for whom does the bell toll?”  In the end, with millions of constituents and their families dying because of the fact that say, Joe Lieberman (I, CT) CHOSE the money these cartels offered him over his own people, symbolizes the entire ugly process that has effectively destroyed democracy in the United States of America.  If you don’t believe me, look at some numbers…in March of 2009, President Obama met with “leaders” in the insurance industry at the White House.  At that time, Cigna, one of the big insurance companies, had a stock price that was going south, as the industry knew that their profit margin may be affected by new policy, “change we can believe in”…..since that time, Cigna’s stock has risen 300 percent.  I may not be a mathematician, but numbers don’t lie.  The insurance cartel and Wall Street are so closely knit that it is nearly impossible to distinguish the two…profit over people, profit over people, PROFIT OVER PEOPLE.  Perhaps someday they will learn.  Have a wonderful Monday!  Peace~ M

Iyanough

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 7:39 am

The ship known as “Iyanough” is another high speed ferry that jets one over to the “far away island” of Nantucket.  Iyanough was a notable Indian Chief here on the Cape and Islands.  A statue built in his honor stands tall next to the Kennedy Library in Hyannis.  Although a great warrior, he was also known for his peaceful ways.  President Obama yesterday received the Nobel Peace Prize in Oslo, Norway with tens of thousands in attendance.  Many would say that a peace prize is not warranted in a time of war,  a position that this fledgling nation seems to find itself in decade after decade.  I am not here to judge the validity of the honor our President received yesterday.  I am here to say this– peace is not “out there”, but within your very soul.  By giving peace, you receive peace.  This goes along the same line that giving and receiving are actually one and the same.  It is just the concept of “time” that trips us up.  By giving peace, even in a world that rejects the very notion of it, you will receive it.  There is nothing more important than your own sense of peace and nothing more valuable than offering it to your brother.  Have a great week end!  Peace~ M

Connection

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 7:50 am

President Obama will be traveling to Copenhagen, Denmark to address the assembled nations gathered for the conference on global warming. At the same time, three delegates from the obstructionist party will descend upon the intelligentsia and darken the door with their presence. James, “I haven’t shaken that sixth grade bully mentality”, Inhofe (R, Senator, OK) whose middle name of mountain still gets plenty of laughs from rational members of the Senate, will be heading up the “coalition to destroy Mother Earth”. Taking the discussion completely out of context, armed with bogus emails, these brave men will attempt to tell the world that global warming is, “the greatest hoax ever played on the American people”, thereby derailing any attempt by the United States to limit the amount of Carbon Dioxide we emit into our atmosphere. The dumbing down of America has begun in earnest…what can WE do to tell the tale, the real tale of what we are doing to this precious commodity called EARTH? Let your voice be heard! Shout it from the roof tops! YOP! Dr. Suess had it right when he wrote his children’s book called “Horton hears a Who”…we are the Who. Senator James, “I’m really not a mountain, but a molehill”, Inhofe and his buddy Senator Barrasso (R, WY), can talk jive all they want, and the more they open their mouths, the more the world will see their folly. Keep the FAITH Copenhagen, your LIGHT will dispel the darkness. Peace~ M

Nantucket Lights

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 8:04 am

I just got home from Dowses Beach, here in Osterville, where the winds were howling and expected to reach 60 knots this afternoon with driving snow and rain all day long…  This powerful Nor’easter is an example of how the storms of the future will look.  A few days ago, the temperatures were in the mid 60’s with mild sunshine allowing flowers to continue to grow on my deck…these wild fluctuations in temperature and moisture have led many to have some suspicions of the brilliant obstructionists who will be making their way to Copenhagen around the same time President Obama will be in that tiny Scandinavian country, meeting with 191 other nations who are concerned with the number one problem facing planet earth in the early part of the 21st century.  Whether or not one “believes” in global warming is irrelevant.  Denial is a powerful thing.  However, our grandchildren and their grandchildren will look to this blip in “time” and see what, if anything, we accomplished at this summit, as the tipping point for our world hangs in the balance.  Add to that equation “peak oil”, of which I will discuss in future blogs, and you have the recipe for disaster on a monumental scale.  There is every reason in God’s green earth to ACT NOW to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide we emit into the atmosphere, and no reason, irrational or not, to sit on our hands…  The key to change comes from the individual, not the government or people who claim to work for the American people when in fact they are the spokespeople for the drug, insurance, banking, oil, and coal cartels whose lobby in Washington is unparralleled in the history of this rather young country called the United States of America.  Are we arrogant enough to truly believe that the world’s voice does not count?  Further, do we believe that the citizens of the world are “wrong” because they do not behave, look and talk as Americans?  Deeper questions than the good Senator from Oklahoma can answer, even with a middle name of mountain…Have a great Wednesday!  Peace~ M

Eagle’s Nest

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 8:42 am

Have you ever seen a Bald Eagle soaring in the mountain cathedrals?  Have you ever witnessed a Leopard in the Sahara walking along the grassland with her two cubs?  Have you ever sat with a New England Cardinal as it munches on berries offered by a rose bush at dawn?  Copenhagen, Denmark is the place to answer those questions, as the bigger picture comes into focus, we collectively look towards the future of our planet and all of the creatures that share it with us.  We can no longer afford to take this little blue rock for granted.  It is the stuff of poets, musicians, lovers, dreamers, photographers and writers.  It is everything to all of us.  Opening the mind to new possibilities can bring about miracles that we cannot even conceive of as of yet…the daily paper would have you believe otherwise, but let it be known that narrowness of mind and heart can be overlooked, forgiven and discarded.  The children, animals and plants of the world KNOW the truth.  Should we be so arrogant as to ignore the dawn, the ocean and the Polar Bear?  Letting go of the old and bringing in the new is something I think we can all agree upon, for the old path is no longer sustainable.  “Love one another, as I have Loved you,” is not just a statement made by a very important man who walked this earth 2000 years ago, but a blue print for LIVING.  Love is the answer.  The next time you see nature in all of it’s glory, be reminded of this.  Do you love what you see?  Have a beautiful Tuesday!  Peace~ M

192

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 7:58 am

Nantucket could not look any more beautiful than it does today…  Looking out onto the “far away island” on this December 7th, 2009, I have a simple prayer for the 192 nations that have gathered in Copenhagen, Denmark for the world conference on the single most important issue facing our country, as well as the 6 billion other people living with us on planet Earth…GLOBAL WARMING.  I pray that Infinite Light will shine through the politics of ego and offer a real solution to the reduction and eventual elimination of carbon emissions into earth’s fragile atmosphere.  That we can all look at the Polar Bear as ourselves, sitting alone on an iceberg in the middle of the Arctic Ocean wondering how he is going to get home.  I want us all to review how the pollution we have carelessly been throwing into our air, water and soil has hurt this temporary home to us ALL and how important it is for us to THINK about future generations and how they too, even though they cannot speak for themselves, wish to see the splendor of the Polar Bear, the Orca, the Siberian Tiger, the African Lion, Elephant, Leopard, Cheetah, Cape Water Buffalo, Giraffe, Hippo, Crocodile, and every other species on this little blue rock called the EARTH.  You cannot put a price on a child’s smile, on a child’s innocent joy, on a child’s infinite LOVE.  There is a better way.  I pray to God that he brings some sense to a non-sensical system of “doing things”, that He allows for us to heal as a world, that His voice drowns out the small, petty, sometimes inhuman voices of the “powers that be”.  The POWER of God will win in the end, and 100 years from now those voices of greed, cruelty and false witness will fade into the oblivion from whence they came.  God speed leaders of the free world!  Unite for the POLAR BEAR, for it is in his destiny that we find our own.  God Bless Us ALL.  Peace~ M

White Steeple

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 8:01 am

Nantucket has one of the oldest white steepled churches in the whole of New England.  Sitting atop one of the few hills on the island, the church has stood the test of “time” and rests like a mother protecting her small children.  The storms came yesterday with ferocity and as I looked out onto Nantucket Harbor this morning, it once again felt like Christmas…  One note of meteorological interest, however, is this–Houston, “we have a problem”, Texas received 3 inches of the white stuff less than 36 hours ago, while Syracuse, NY (normal annual snowfall of 273 inches) has received no snow as of December 5th, 2009–you do the math.  Global warming is no joke, as I have repeatedly said in my daily dissertation, and as we gear up for Copenhagen, Denmark and the world conference on the “hoax” of global warming, I would ask you to consider the facts…Perhaps the misinformation is not with the scientists who have documented the warming of the earth’s atmosphere for decades now, but with the folks who “own” the airwaves, spreading lies and propaganda daily for voracious appetites who have been trained to crave sensationalism over substance, feeding a vicious circle of non sense.  You cannot blame the electorate for this blunder, only the few individuals who are not interested in yours or my grand children’s welfare…their only interest is in the almighty dollar.  The United States will have at it’s disposal (one of ten republican Senators) Mr. Inhoff, a republican from the great state of Oklahoma!  Mr. Inhoff’s dim view of the world perhaps began when his parents gave him the middle name of “mountain”.  You got it, mountain.  Not only does this “senator” truly believe that global warming is a hoax, he is arrogant enough to travel 8000 miles to a foreign country and display his stupidity to the world…this of course, proves to the world that our country has split into the rational and irrational.  What other conclusion could an intelligent human being make?  The great tragedy in all of this is this–GLOBAL WARMING is very real indeed and if we cannot even be represented, with truth and good faith, in a global conference on the health of a very sick planet, we have truly lost our way as a nation considered by many in the global community as a leader in solving so many of the world’s problems.  It is as if the bullies of the playground have taken over the entire school, from the Superintendent on down, and live only to satisfy a warped desire for money and power.  The good news is that God created the world, even the Senator Inhoff, and that unseen power is infinitely stronger than anything a small minority of thugs in Washington D.C. could ever conspire.  Einstein once said, “God does not play dice with the Universe.”  Have a wonderful Sunday!  Peace~ M

Air Dynamic

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 7:45 am

Al Gore, our 43rd President, told a joke recently on one of his media book tours promoting his newest book on the very real dynamics of global warming, “Our Choice”, and it went something like this…he was talking to John Stewart of “The Daily Show, with John Stewart” and he was wondering how he could get one of our stellar Senators to wake up to the reality of our sick planet and he came up with this idea… He would fill up a big barrel with water and prop it against one of the Senator’s doors.  As the Senator from say, Connecticut, opens said door, the water would rush in and flood his office.  Looking down in dismay at the empty barrel he will notice a note attached reading, “Dear Senator, we are melting…  Love, the Glaciers.”  That pretty much sums it up.  As low intelligence reigns in Washington D.C., so too does the ever increasing carbon foot print of man kind on this beautiful world we live upon.  With the power of denial, ignorance and greed at their disposal, the multi-national conglomerates continue to control the puppets of our nation’s capitol, utilizing some obscure emails to further muddy the waters of the concrete scientific evidence that our planet is slowly melting.  Like health care, the banking “industry”, the war (s), the hunger problem and our insistence on following the enormous egos of men in power taking us to the edge of a cliff, the monumental problem of human activity on planet earth has been relegated to a myth– when in reality is it as far from myth as one can get.  Copenhagen, Denmark is right around the corner and although my words may not reach the ears of men who have the power to change what is happening both here in the United States as well as around the world, I pray that a power much greater than man is listening…for the far right evangelical power brokers have no monopoly on GOD and the grand plan he has for HIS CREATION.  Have a nice week end!  Peace~ M

As I have said before in previous correspondences, Nantucket was named “the far away island” by the Native American Indians who lived there long before European settlers took control of the land…  It has been said that history repeats itself because no one was listening to begin with.  Nantucket is basically a small, sandy rock 30 miles south, southeast of Hyannis Harbor.  In 1500 A.D. there were no English, French, or Dutch residents on this gem in the Atlantic.  Only rolling dunes, small rivers, several harbors and plenty of fields to graze cattle and sheep upon, as well as land used primarily for key crops that sustained these original inhabitants of our great country.  These Indians were tribal and for the most part, peaceful.  They were true stewards of the land they lived and died upon, taking nothing more than what they needed and leaving the land better than it was before they arrived.  In 1500 A.D. there was no whaling, for there was no need for the commercialized destruction of our brother the Whale.  The Indians were in tune with the land, air, water and themselves.  Their intention was not world domination, quite the opposite, for they knew intuitively that the land did not belong to them, but they did belong to the land.  Perhaps that is what Jane Goodall was talking about recently on “Bill Moyers Journal”, when she spoke of her book, “Hope for Animals and the World” and her exhausting work in Africa called “Roots and Shoots”.  She spoke of her trip to the glaciers that are melting in Greenland.  Moreover, her witness to a particular Inuit, (native Eskimo of the region) who, while looking at these massive towers of ice crumbling into the sea, observed them with great sadness, crying openly in the blinding white of the still remaining ice and snow…  The Indians of the far away island of Nantucket are gone, but we can take a page from their history and learn from it.  Copenhagen, Denmark and the Conference on Global Warming is no joke.  If we are to believe that we really do care about our grandchildren and their grandchildren, we should draw our conclusions from the TRUTH–not the lies promulgated by crooked business groups systematically destroying this fragile planet of ours…it is time to stand up for what you believe in and make an effort.  For if you will not, then who will?  Have a nice Wednesday!  Peace~ M
