Greetings and salutations from the sun, surf and sand of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the great island of Nantucket!  Great to be with you on this glorious Monday morning, dawning early, as usual, here on Cape Cod, Osterville, to be specific.  There is no doubt that when visitors come to the Cape, to visit the remarkable assortment of history’s shadows, that loom so deep and heavy here, as Sargent Shriver was laid to rest at Saint Francis Xavier cemetery in Centerville on Saturday, the next town over from Osterville, adjacent to Hyannisport, another village of Barnstable, just as Hyannis is, as well as West Barnstable, Barnstable village itself, of course, and finally Cotuit, all making up the small villages that sprang to LIFE in the early 17th century, yes, you can see that when one is absorbed in this living history, you can see why they fall in love with the place.  For deep down in every American is a desire to know where one came from, what our actual history is, thus making it easier to move forward, and by knowing all of this, where you came from, assures one of help and success in assisting of where one is going, where one WANTS to go…  A fact that you can see with every glimpse of an historic marker–be it on a church, with it’s white steeples, an historic house, where say a famous writer lived, or a famous President who lived only a short fifty years ago.  The remarkable sacrifices that men and women who have lived on Cape Cod, since this country’s inception, is quite remarkable.  I am in awe every time I venture outside of my home, either by car, by bike, by foot, by plane or by boat.  The transportation matters not.  When seeing, and then reading, what the intentions of these brave forefather’s of ours actually were, during those trying and short lifetimes, it amazes me that we all live in this modern world of relative comfort, for some of us, and that we can’t find solutions to simple problems, if looked at them honestly without an “Angle”, that will serve ALL mankind.  For in end, is that not what we all want?  Solutions?  Of course, solutions, like beauty, are in the eye of the beholder.  KNOWLEDGE cannot be forced down anyone’s throat, people will not open their eyes until they WANT to.  The simple answers to our growing global problems, as it seems we are most certainly a global society, all due to economic globalization, a fact whether you believe it or not, for you can’t have the spoils, or rather, be a STEWARD, without taking responsibility for your ACTIONS, are right in front of us, yet, we turn away from them, because they’re just to damn hard. In the end, as the earth continues to become more toxic and hot, WE, collectively will KNOW who to blame, how and where it happened, and what, if anything could be done about it now, when it was so clear, back in 2011, what the SOLUTIONS were…the times we all talked about “taking care of the deficit” because we did not want to leave that burden on our “children and grandchildren”.  The deficit will not matter if the earth cannot grow food because it has grown too warm.  You can’t “make” water–clean drinking water, at least, and you can’t recreate a clean river, a clean ocean, a clean pond, a clean stream, a clean Gulf, a clean marshland, or a clean glacier, yes, that is one thing “we” human beings cannot do, recreate say, the glacier that sits atop Mt. Kilimanjaro, a 19,000 foot plus mountain that my father climbed in the 60’s and I saw with my own eyes in 1982.  To quote George Burns once again, from the classic film “Oh God!” , starring Mr. George Burns and the late, great, John Denver, “You try making a fish, you can’t, and when the last one is gone, that’s it, over and out.” The short sightedness of the republican “tea party”, the establishment, and the corporations that hired them is astounding, and hopefully, some of those CEO’s, chairmen, etc., receive this ‘message in a bottle’ and begins helping people, and forgets about the “bottom line”, perhaps for five minutes a day, let’s say–real business people like Bill and Melinda Gates, Ted Turner, and Warren Buffet, just to name of few of the enlightened souls still out there, and help turn this “global space ship”, earth’s environment, around, START making the right choices, and marks the change that is  surely coming.  Hope you have a nice day everyone and may the “light from the lighthouse shine on me (you).” (musical selection from the film “Prairie Home Companion”)…  PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
