Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the once again, gorgeous, sunny, rather cool island of Nantucket! Great to be with you once again, as always, on this Wednesday, the 18th day of April, 2013, a day that will go down in history as a wake up call for all who believe in LOVE, LIGHT and FROGS. Please allow me to explain… Today, only a few moments ago, there was a vigil, a service at the “Old South Church”, the church of the Holy Cross, in Boston, where dignitaries, such as OUR great President Barack Obama along with his wonderful, lovely wife and FIRST LADY, Michelle Obama, and OUR Governor Deval Patrick, who attended said gathering of like souls to come to grips with a horrible terrorist act, once again, on OUR soil–the Boston bombing that took place on Monday afternoon during the running of that city’s running, the 117th running, of the Boston Marathon, on “Patriot’s Day”, a day set aside for those in this fair city I was privileged to live in to commemorated the battle of “Lexington and Concord”, the fire of spirit that began that Revolutionary War of the latter part of the 18th century, a battle for freedom from tyranny, terrorism and tears of old… I was moved by the priests, rabbis and other people of the cloth, not to mention Boston’s great mayor, Mr. Thomas Menino, who gave the world what WE ALL know to be the TRUTH–BOSTON ROCKS! It is the birth place of this “concept” of democracy that WE all hold dear. Coming on the heals of the shame filled actions of the U.S. Senate on Tuesday of this week, a grouping of so called leaders who shot down, so to speak, the simple concept of background checks on individuals attempting to purchase guns in the never ending NRA born loophole of gun shows and this same Internet you are reading right now. Pity that. However, as Joe Scarborough stated on “Morning Joe”, only on MSNBC (mornings, 6 a.m.- 9a.m., eastern) only a few moments ago, a I paraphrase only slightly–’…perhaps they cannot SEA the lies and cowardice that exists in both parties, because they only want to hold onto their precious seats in that sacred institution and are afraid of the NRA’s extreme money making lobby. President Obama gave an impassioned speech yesterday to that FACT and we will SEA in 2014, for 90 percent of the American People cannot be wrong, nor can their will be thwarted. May God’s LOVE, LIGHT and SPIRIT be with the victims as well as the great people of Boston, not to mention the victims and families of New Town, Connecticut, and may we ALL thank those first responders, who make this statement from the movie “Starman” a reality, (a movie starring Jeff Bridges and Karen Allen, circa 1984), when he said to the official checking out his “alien” status, “…..do you want me to tell you what I love the most about your species?”. “….You are at your best when things are at their worst”. Have a blessed Wednesday and take care. And remember that the acts of Love and the spirit of Forgiveness are Paramount to US ALL, for that is the very BEST WE CAN DO! PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
