“Dances with Wolves”

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 11:03 am


Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the sunny, cool, quite delightful island of Nantucket!  ‘Tis very good to be with you on this eve of Thanksgiving, Wednesday, November 25th, 2015, a jaw dropping day out there on the road to pleasant, i.e., the historic Hyannis Waterfront, a place one must visit to truly appreciate, as this is, after all, where the whole concept of Thanksgiving began.  The Wampanoag Indians breaking bread with Puritan Englishman who found a way to work together as opposed to slaughtering one another…

There is enough for everyone of God’s children.

I was just listening to some John Denver, taking a break from the fascinating news ‘clips’ from the ‘old ROKU’ streaming device.  Sea Cape Cod highly recommends taking in some YouTube videos of the man and his amazing music, concert after concert.  A man who died way, way, way too young, 54.  His plane crashing into Monterey Bay outside of San Francisco.  He was flying a test plane and there was something amiss with the fuel tanks, thus ending what was a brilliant musical presence on this planet.  John was beloved by millions and will be missed for all of his hard work in the fields of the humanitarian, television, movie and environmental career that he shined the most brightly.  His work in, on and OF the environment was unparalleled in the entertainment industry and was a big contributor to the Wildlife Conservation Society.  To wit he also provided one of the best “Wildlife Concerts” in history as far as this reporter is concerned.  SEA if you can locate the name of the song these lyrics below belong to.  Perhaps reflecting upon said words this Thanksgiving holiday.  For this day of thanks is not, nor has it ever been, a day that marks the beginning of MORE consumption.  It should usher in the spirit of the season; namely that of…

GIVING

“…And you say that the battle is over, finally the war is all done.”

“Go tell it to those with wind in their nose, who run from the sound of a gun.”

“And write it on the sides of the great whaling ships, or on ice flows where conscience is tossed…”

“With a wild in their eyes it is they who must die;

WE who must measure the loss.”

“And you say that the battle is over, finally the world is at Peace”

“You mean no one is dying and mother’s don’t weep?”

“Or it’s not in the papers at least?”

“There are those who would deal in the darkness of life…”

“There are those who would tear down the sun…”

“And most men are ruthless,

but some will still weep when the gifts we are given are gone…”

“For the blame cannot rest on the heads of the few…,

It’s become such a part of the race.”

“It’s eternally  tragic, that that which is magic, be killed at the end of the glorious chase.”

“From the young seals to the great whales”

“From the waters to the wood”.

“They will fall just like weeds in the wind…”

“With perfume and fur coats and trophies on walls,

what a hell of a race to call men…”

“And you say that the battle is over, finally the war is all done?”

“Go tell it to those with the wind in their nose who run from the sound of a gun…”

“And write it on the sides of the great whaling ships,

or ice flows where conscience is tossed.”

“With a Wild in their eyes, it is they that must die.”

“WE, who must measure the LOSS!”

“With a wild in their eyes, it is they who must die, and we that will measure the COST.”

~John Denver

(1943-1997)

A great, safe and happy Thanksgiving to ALL; even those who do not SEA, yet?

PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
