Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the sunny, very warm and humid island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this Monday morning–the 20th day of July, 2015–a bit on the sticky side for those who are mildly affected by a rise in the humidity levels. This reporter is fortunate–just returning from a ten mile bike, then jumping into Nantucket Sound, and riding some more–humidity is a meteorological condition wherein one sweats more of that poison of one’s system, a journey highly recommended at least once a year. Especially for my friends on the front lines of the corporate owned television airwaves, good people who must get awfully tired of not saying what is truly on their minds…
Barnstable County Fair opens tonight here on Cape, an honest to goodness country fair that brings all the fixen’s! If you are anything like this reporter, country fairs are right up your ally. Sure, deep fried “Starbursts” are probably not good for you ‘at the end of the day’, but who cares right? If the GMO’s don’t get you, the fat, sugar and salt will! So why not just throw in the towel one day out of the year and have at it! Eat as if this is your last day on earth. For after all, in reality, that is all we really have anyway. This present moment. You, the reader, and I, the “writer”. So, you still have time to book that ticket to Hyannis! Jet Blue even flies here now from New York, so come on down and pay US a visit on this little sand bar created 11,500 years ago by that Last Great Ice Age, creating an amazing landscape that would take many lifetimes to explore.
“Those who wander are not always lost”
Of course, “contempt prior to investigation” (anything that involves reason and logic), is this 21st Century GOP’s modus operandi. Indeed, those aforementioned virtues far too ‘complex’ and foreign for those obstinate children of this current U.S. Congress to comprehend. As the world embraces the recent historic nuclear (weapons), agreement between the U.S. and Iran–with the blessings of the U.N.–it would seem the path to a sustainable peace in the turbulent Middle East may be in sight. At least one without a nuclear proliferation, resulting in who knows what in the mid-to-long term future of not only the region, but the planet, yes, it would seem to the naked eyed observer we are most assuredly on said path. But, alas, they, you and that wide eyed lad would be wrong.
Republicans in the U.S. Congress (mainly in the House of Representatives), have made it clear they will not play ball with our outstanding 44th U.S. President, Mr. Barack Obama. Work with him on anything of value, so why would this diplomatic solution to averting a possible World War III be any different? An agreement that far outweighs anything the clowns on the right have proposed, unless you consider covert CIA operatives going in to a sovereign nation again; “our” ever itchy, industrial complex trigger finger at the ready, the GOP’s real plan when all is boiled down to it’s radioactive core… Indeed, defense contractors like Northrop Grumman and Halliburton salivating at the mouth every time FOX ‘news’ utters the word on set: IRAN!
The spin that FOX has spun over the years boggles the mind. However, never forget we all have the power to turn that nonsense off! Deep six hate radio too; ‘men’ like Rush Limbaugh and the rest! Instead of all that noise, fear, hate, terror, and constant conflict–a real ego fest–consider putting on a deep meditation with “Deepak Chopra”. Sea Cape Cod highly recommends all of the “21 day challenges” with Oprah. These meditations bring one a great sense of peace and serenity sorely lacking in this 24/7 world. They also act as a simplifying agent: getting down to what is truly real, i.e. YOU! Just say a simple prayer for this world while you are at it, ask for a miracle. The miracle of this human race actually waking up and taking it’s collective power back from those who are destroying OUR only home via this evil, incessant and insane GREED!
Have a good week ahead folks!
PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
