Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the fabulous island of Nantucket! I just returned home from a trip to old “Faith Hill”, on this cold morning, here in Osterville, the tiny, tiny town only a football toss away from the former home of President Jack Kennedy, his beautiful wife Jackie, and the rest of that extraordinary family that HELPED this nation more than most of the “leaders” who hold office in Washington D.C. could ever conceive of. I am often humbled to live in such a place, for the Greater Black Back Seagulls, the Great Blue Heron, and the morning dove all live here with US, and, more often than not, they show me the way. Sitting on top of that small hill that stands roughly 17 feet above sea level, represents everything I LOVE about Cape Cod, the islands of Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket–it brings me back to being. There was a chance meeting only a few moments ago with another fellow resident of Osterville, John, I believe his name was, at the Crosby Yacht club, and in that brief and wonderful conversation, I learned a few things about how this whole world works… WE all disagree about many policy issues here in the good old United States of America, yet WE can find solutions to OUR problems that are not only facing this country, but the world at large, if we put our egos aside, just for moment, and see the LOVE that shines through. For is it not true that breaking bread with our “enemies” represents the word PEACE? Knowing that WE have so many issues in this world, that grow by the day, is it also not fair to say that we all have a SAY in the SOLUTION–is that not the DEFINITION of DEMOCRACY? Agreeing to that point, would you not also consider the reality of what we do to one another can affect the greater good at large? Moreover, what world do you want for your grand childen? What part of the ocean do we want to destroy for greed? How many people do we need to dispossess before we say, “I think this is enough?” Clean up the air, clean up the water, clean up your act Washington, for WE KNOW what is really going on, and all of the horse$hit on the golf course is not going to change a damn thing, unless the engaging parties have GOOD intentions to begin with… Have a nice day and please remember to LOVE one another, for that is the only thing YOU, and I, will take in the end… PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~! M
