Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the great island of Nantucket! So good, as always, to be with you on this Saturday morning, the eighth day of January, 2011, coming to you LIVE from the little, tiny, tiny seaside village of Osterville, Massachusetts. The sun is out and the snow, for the most part, has melted away, although it is still rather cold in these here parts, and as we look ahead to the “next thing” on the virtual map of this great land of OURS, WE may all be wondering what that “next thing” is–what is has to do with any of US and how WE can make this a better world for US, our children and our grandchildren, for in the end, what WE, collectively, leave behind, is all that really matters…much like the cave drawings of our ancient “forefathers” who scribbled them on a wall when we were just sophisticated enough to learn how to tame FIRE and indeed, ICE. Our country’s forefathers did much the same, only a few hundred years ago, when MEN like Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin and John Adams CREATED the country that WE all know and love today, doing it the form of the CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. In that sacred “cave drawing”, a portrait, if you will, of a painting of thoughts and ideas, concepts and creeds, codes and courageous acts of bravery that were forged into a simple document that GAVE us all the freedom to BELIEVE that there was a better way forward, a better vision, a stronger sense of purpose…yes, in that beautiful document, lies the answer to all of this nation’s problems. Somehow, we have lost sight of that FACT, the vision that these great forefathers of our past handed to US as OUR legacy a little over 236 years ago, and WE have allowed scoundrels to take what is rightfully OURS. For it was by painting a picture of our FUTURE, “all for one and ONE for ALL”, that these men became GREAT and it is up to US ALL, that we keep their words and directives sacred, as sacred as an ancient picture drawn on some ancient wall, many, many moons ago. I pray you have a wonderful week end and you don’t take any more wooden nickles, especially from snake oil salesmen, mad men, or villains who pray upon people’s weaknesses, fears and failures. May God always keep you in HIS ever lasting LOVE. PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
