Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the windy, cool, gorgeous island of Nantucket–a sunny one at that! Great to be with you and yours on this Monday morning, the 11th day of June, 2012, a little late, but, hey, at least I am back in that ‘game‘ of writing again, after taking a few moments of ‘time’ to take in the TRUE amazing beauty that is this little sand bar called ‘The Cape and the Islands’, a sand bar created 11,500 years ago by the Last Great Ice Age… Looking above you, you may notice a rainbow I took a shot of only 48 hours ago, a true ARC that stretched from the depths of Nantucket Sound to the heart of Oyster Harbors, an old hunting ground once owned by the Crosby Yacht family of fame, now home to the rich and ‘famous’, whose shores look out onto the same bay of Cotuit, where, of course, that ‘ocean meets the wood’… I cannot describe in words the AWE I felt when I witnessed this magnificent mark of nature, save this– ‘come on down and visit US!, we will, as always, leave the light on for YA!’. When I took my break from writing for a week, I also took a break from the world of politics, and the nastiness that can, and always does, come with that territory. It has been a wonder to turn off the ‘TV’ just for a moment, unplug, as it were, and take in what is truly important, namely OUR children and OUR grandchildren being able to SEA what I, and countless others, have been blessed to SEA every day for the past seven years living in Osterville and Cotuit. A place where children of all ages lose that meaningless struggle for wealth and fame… instead simply becoming one with the world around them, namely the trees, the flowers, the water, the whales, dolphins, seals, Cardinals, Great Blue Herons, Ospreys, cat birds, chickadees and the like…, picking up a seashell along the way just to remind themselves of where they were, and where they might wish to return someday, providing, of course, WE, don’t mess it all up for them! We have all of the FACTS in regard to this election in November, just GOOGLE them!, making up our OWN independent minds–for your mind is YOUR own and it is not for sale, please don’t let anybody tell you any differently. May you have a peaceful week ahead, and may this country and it’s 311 million people real EYES that democracy is still spelled, last time I checked, with that little letter ‘d’!!! Sea you tomorrow, same bat time, same bat channel! PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
