Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard, and Nantucket! Returning from Dowses Beach, here in Osterville, a few minutes ago to witness yet another beautiful sunrise over the Nantucket sound. A few boats are in at East Bay, I’ll will be launching my 14.2 Capri sailboat in a few days, and it got me “thinking” about our lives, all of our lives, on this little blue rock I call earth. When you see a boat out on the open water, it reminds one just how small we humans really are. Floating all “alone” out in a giant sea of seeming emptiness. If you can picture each person as a glowing light, for that is what they truly are, you may be able to grasp just how much we need each other. You can see how important and divine each and every living thing IS, how precious LIFE is, how paramount LOVE is… When I heard on the “t.v.” yesterday that our friends “that are way beyond petroleum” are blocking organizations trained in caring for animals that live in or around the Gulf, barring them from helping bp clean up their own mess, saving as many of the birds, sea turtles, dolphins, otters, and other animal life, (people whose lives are dedicated to the preservation of wilderness itself) I was deeply saddened. At first, I was very angry at the news that these monsters were only allowing “their” people in, so as to minimize the actual damage (shown to credible news outlets) that this epic catastrophe has already begun to cause. When you hear even more about the initial lies that were promulgated by the corporation, per the amount of oil being spilled, the toxicity of the “dispersants” that are actually causing MORE damage (Britain banned these chemicals a decade ago), and the fact that it seems the Obama administration has allowed bp to take the reigns on this one, effectively allowing the wolf to go back to the hen house for one more “look”, I get even angrier. But, then I sit back and watch it unfold, for I know that I am not alone. There are many who feel as strongly as I do, as to the folly of our continued efforts to mine an energy source that is slowly killing the planet that we all SHARE as one species– along with the millions of other species of animals and plants on a very fragile planet. Writing here in the darkness of my loft in a small village in the remote region of New England and more specifically a little sand bar known as Cape Cod, I realize that my voice is small compared to the yelling and screaming of say, a FOX NEWS. But within that “small” voice, lies the truth, and the truth is not small, but an intense Light that we all have within ourselves– and it is a relief when it is set free–for that is what we were meant to be–FREE! Light always triumphs over darkness. It is written. Have a wonderful Saturday everybody! Peace~ M
