Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the still rather thunderous island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this Thursday morning, the 19th day of July, 2012, a much cooler day on the Cape, and I hope you and yours are not suffering too much from the heat and drought that currently grip this “America the Beautiful”–from SEA to shining SEA. To quote an old friend from London, or Liverpool rather, Mr. John Lennon–“Imagine there’s no Heaven, it’s easy if you try, no hell below US, above US only SKY. Imagine all the people, living for today…. ah ha, ahhh… Imagine there’s no countries, it isn’t hard to do. Nothing to kill or die for, and no religion too. Imagine ALL the people, living life in peace. You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I hope someday you’ll join US, and the world will be as one. Imagine no possessions, I wonder if you can, no need for greed or hunger, a brotherhood of MAN. Imagine all the people, sharing ALL the WORLD. You who you, you say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one, I hope someday you join US, and the world delivers ONE. May you be with the TRUTH today, and always, for John Lennon himself summed it up three decades ago with that classic piece of ART. In the immortal words of another John, John Belushi from SNL fame, not to mention his work in “The Blues Brothers” (“we’re on a mission from God”) and his last film, shot in my home state of Colorado, “Continental Divide”, circa 1981, where he stated to his bird watching girlfriend, an EAGLE watcher, as she is trying to make him quit cigarettes, “do you mind not interrupting me during my last smoke”, and I want to put this quite succinctly, for this goes out to all of the athletes competing in the London Summer Olympics of 2012 in only a few days, and, again, I am quoting the dean of funny, Mr. John Belushi as he is making a fake commercial for ‘little chocolate donuts’, and speaking of his recent win in the decathlon, “I logged a lot of miles to win that race, and ate a lot of these ‘little chocolate donuts’. These donuts have been on my breakfast table since I was a little kid.” Have a great rest of the week folks, as I will be ‘on assignment’ for the rest of the week and week end, so please, also have a GREAT week end and, to quote another classic line from that great Mr. John Belushi aforementioned film “The Blues Brothers”, circa 1980, when John is facing up to FACTS regarding say his tax returns…a nun that you SEA above says, and I’m talking to you Mr. “Mitt” Romney, “come closer, let me SEA your face.” Until we meet again, blessings and respite from the heat! PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
