Greetings from Cape Cod and the Islands of Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket! On a cool, rainy day here in the latter part of March, I bid you a fair adieu. The above image is of Cape Cod Bay, specifically North Truro and one of the may hills that define this solitary town at the very tip top of the glacier born Cape. The town in the winter is quiet, with the only sound being one of wind and weather, as the sun, sleet, snow and rain caress the dunes that have remained untouched by man for centuries. Cape Cod National Seashore is a string of lands that were set aside when Theodore Roosevelt created the National Park system throughout the country, assuring that developers would not spoil this most sacred of all national parks, (in my opinion). For it is within this area, that the first settlers in the United States of America first landed. When the tall ships came in from the east, they initially stopped in Chatham, a little further down the arm of the Cape, as they were in search of water. Not being able to find a suitable mooring for their water vessels at now Coast Guard Beach in Chatham, the pilgrims headed north along the coast line of “Lower Cape” and landed in Provincetown, just north of North Truro, and built a giant tower, known as the “Pilgrim Monument”. In the winter, with no tourists or commercial interruptions, the clearness and clarity of the salty, cold air brings about a peace that I’ve never known. As one loses oneself in the dunes of “time” in this noble place, one begins to see with that clarity, sorting out the true from the false, noting what is important and what is not, and with that finding the answers to questions that I dared not ask before. This is America! The true birth place of this great, proud nation of ours. 350 years ago Fox News did not exist. I wonder if Roger Ailes, the President of that “fair and balanced news station”, ever took the time to look at the grandeur of this country, took a good look at what is truly important and what is not. For in the end, it is the LOVE we make that we take with us after we shake this mortal coil. Fighting the good fight, especially when speaking of mother earth, is a noble cause. We all live on this planet, and we all have a right to know and speak the truth concerning global warming, for it is here, whether you like it or not, and I can guarantee you one thing, our children and grandchildren will ask us years from now, what were you thinking? Why didn’t you do something about the filth that we all put into our atmosphere, causing the great glaciers and polar ice caps to melt before our very eyes? What the “hell” were you thinking? Short term profits? That’s what I thought. So the next time a Fox News representatives like Glenn, “lonesome roads”, Beck tries to sell you some warped ideology that does not have you in mind, but controlling your mind in mind, change the channel and don’t look back. For poison comes in many forms, and Fox News is a poison that you just can’t afford to take. The misinformation, deliberate lies, and the fueling of hatred, violence and fear in this country is a direct result of sick individuals at the top of the food chain whose main objective is power, profit and control. Bill Maher, of HBO’s, “Real Time with Bill Maher”, said it best last night, when he stated the obvious, “when you call out a playground bully, bloody his nose and look at him for what he truly is, he squeals like a pig.” I am paraphrasing Bill, for his comments were on HBO and I prefer to remain a gentleman. This is no time to back down, it is time to fight. I conclude that if we do not get a hold on the carbon dioxide, methane, and other green house gases that we are spewing into the blue sky soon, this planet will undergo changes that will effect even the “P.O.N.” and their high and mighty rhetoric will crumble, like the glaciers of Greenland, disappearing into the sea forever. I pray to God someone is listening… Have a great week folks! Peace~ M
