Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun, surf and sky of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the deep blue skied, sun bathed, beautiful island of Nantucket! Great to be with you and yours on this glorious Wednesday down at the Hyannis Waterfront–AHOY!–walking at the moment on the green grass of Aselton Park, overlooking said Harbor, truly the ‘gateway to the SEA!’. So come on down and pay US a visit, we will, as always, leave that LIGHT on for “ya”!
America indeed, so often we forget where it is this whole ‘thing’ called the United States of America began. So many lessons to be gleaned from the epic struggle against a powerful world colonizer, Great Britain. So too is this nation in a similar fate in this early part of the 21st Century…or so it would seem. However, the progress that has been made in the fight against poverty, the advancement of medicines and technologies, and the increasing level of consciousness coming forth, an awaking if you will, affords one great hope and joy. Therefore, it is not hard to smile every once and a while.
Sure, the planet is getting warmer, and by the end of the century, some of the 11 billion people will stand up and begin taking care of our resources over the current system we have that only concerns itself with the bottom line: the monetary market system.
(modus operandi: PROFIT over people)
As the late, great Dudley Moore stated to “Bitterman” (his chauffeur), in the classic 1981 film “Arthur”, after a heavy night of drinking at “the Carlyle” in New York’s Upper East Side, “…go through the park Bitterman, you know how I love the park.” Indeed Arthur, deep, deep, deep down inside we all love nature; the wilderness, the great outdoors, lo, the mighty seas, waters from whence we all came. Let’s try to protect it as a collective, before it is too late!
PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
