March was all of the obove.
The weather was monstrous across our land and around the
globe. Fruit from South America almost non-excisting due
to floods in their region. Bananas were scares and $1.10
per pound because of the shortage.
The 5th anniversary of the Iraq invasion was named Shock
and AWE. It coincided with the death of the 4,000 American
soldiers. Unfortunately the death toll of the Iraqis people
appears to be unknown to the American people, along with
the loss of the many lost due to war, conflict, riots,
illness and starvation in the remaining parts of the world.
Ridiculous in our obsession... arched on in part by
Lou Dobbs at CNN... about illegal immigration. Because
of the pressure to revise laws on LEGAL foreign work Visas,
the numbers of needed workers for the Circus Industry
has been restricted. Unable to find local and American
workers most Circuses will no longer able to pitch their
Big Top in order to entertain us. Imagine a world without
the Circus! It is a travesty not to be able to share this
age-old tradition with our children and grandchildren.
Attending a performance at the Circus is something almost
all people of all nations can identify with, one of the
few things we have in common world wide. What is to become
of the artists, performers and animals? A whole segment
of population to fall victim to misplaced ridiculous rules
March was hellacious inasmuch people struggled for the
bare necessities to survive the winter. Economically many
did not have the means to heat their homes, buy food.
Many friend were ill, unable to seek medical help because
they have neither medical insurance nor money to see a
doctor or buy much needed medications. Many were unable
to buy the traditional new clothes for the holiday. When
unable to locate PEEPS... little marshmallow chickens
and rabbits... we inquired why it was so complicated to
locate PEEPS. We were told by truckers transporting groceries
that many items were unable to get to market because of
the high gas prices.
The History Channel aired a program: How the Earth was
made. It can be viewed on www.History.com.
It explained the movement of the earth mass from the original
continent Rodenia to the present-day freshwater swamp
Okefenokee in Georgia. It showed the geological evolution
of the earth, how the land-mass moves about one inch per
year. Mountains result as a crushing of sea-land as can
be seen at the Great Matterhorn, where the tip of the
European Mountain is actually part of the African plate
which crashed into the rising plates of the Alps.
100 miles below the earth diamond bearing magma thrown
up at super-eruptions. Kilauea still changing the routes
of shorelines and the shape of islands.
Each year I spend time in Canyon DeChelle, each year
the floor of the Canyon looks different, having gained
or lost a couple of inches of soil from the floods which
create new routes of temporary riverbeds and new crevices
yet to be explored never seen the year before.
The Grand Canyon was deliberately flooded by the Colorado
River to reestablish an ecosystem necessary for live to
continue to flourish in the marvel we are able to witness
in modern day. A glimpse of the beauty within our own
country. Imagine the changes and the breathtaking natural
changes occurring everywhere on this planet we call home.
Enormous changes at the South Pole, unknown how this event
impacts us as the PEOPLE OF THE PLANET EARTH.
10,000 years ago was another program aired on the History
Channel. It can also be viewed at www.History.com.
This documentary deals with mankind over a period of
several thousand years. It shows how, when necessary,
tribes relocated, especially when it became apparent climate
or food supply could no longer sustain a people. Intermarriage
was occasionally required to genetically further the survival
of certain tribes and groups of Earth Inhabitants of the
The Spaceshuttle Endeavor landed safely, a rare night
landing. Imagine yourself having studied and worked all
of your life to work and live in space. Looking out of
the porthole of the space station must be a sight! The
fact that we have accomplished the task of being able
to spend time in space, a far cry from living in caves
just 6,000 years ago! There is our beautiful planet, EARTH,
what a sight! As far as we know it is a one-of-a-kind!
Imagine also what it must feel like to, after a short
while, make the return trip at tremendous speed, to our
home. As we approach the planted gets larger and larger,
we can identify the oceans and the continents. The poles
which are breath taking, appearing smaller with each time
we do return to Earth. Weather systems, smoke from fires
and pollution become recognizable. What is NOT visible
is borders we have created for ourselves. It is true that
we... Humans... share a mini gene of reptile origin, located
where our skull ends and the neck begins...which makes
us territorial. There has been TRIBE amongst us since
the beginning of time. Casts, Nationalities followed,
Dogma of religion and different ways of lifestyles followed.
Men have died to prove that we are equal. We are and rightfully
so. Even though we differ in appearance we have two arms,
two legs, the same organs, red blood. Our productive organs
operate the same. We feel pain, get sick and experience
the same emotions. We have the same basic need. Food,
shelter, the sense of belonging... TRIBE.
One of the things I have tried to accomplish with my television
Show: A VISIT WITH A PERSON OF HIGH STRANGENESS is to
add education and diversity. In fact my Mission Statement
reads in part ... oh well, let me give it to you in it's
T.O.H.S was established to benefit Mother Earth, Human
kind and all our relations, earthly and non-earthly. Our
goal is to help all who wish it to reconnect with the
Creator, Mother Earth and the Cosmic powers of life. T.O.H.S
does not follow a conventional road, however. It is NON-DENOMINATIONAL,
NONJUDGMENTAL and OPEN-MINDED.
We believe that we are Stewars of this great planet,
NOT her masters. We owe this biosphere our respect and
our love. It is time to bring all our brothers and sisters
of ALL orgins, creeds and races together to evoke the
cosmic law of love in progress. To this end we dedicate
our path and unite in this common goal. We stand for the
differences which we ALL have in common, for it's those
differences that make us unique and mysterious. Many believe
that earth changes are occurring now with yet more to
come. There are steps that we can take to help ease what
could be and may change things all together. To all our
relations we ask the Creator to bless your journey and
bring you peace in the dreamtime.
I have brought many people of different ethnic background,
believe systems and geographical locations worldwide to
my stage and discussed the differences which make us unique,
Shared ideas and possible solutions.
There is a documentary The Color of Fear. It was produced
by the Baha'i. It shows our prejudice are often mistaken
for entitlement issues. One people fells entitled to everything,
by birthright or some unfortunate idea that is how it
should be because that is what was told to them.
It has to be said that prejudice are wide spread. When
I brought this subject up to my friend Carrie Houston...She
was the first FEMALE combat helicopter pilot in the US
Army. She related prejudice to gender rather than race.
She is Caucasian.
A newscaster noted Viagra had a birthday and with that
opened dialog for Erectile Dysfunction. He also noted
it would be great to locate a pill to open dialog for
Election Dysfunction. Speaking of pills... Take a brand-name
medicine. delude it and make it generic. Generic will
work for you for a time. It more often than not looses
potency and the desired result. It might be cheeper and
all we can afford, but in the long run brand-name pills
are far more beneficial. It is the same with people. We
all like to be BRAND-NAME, we do not wish to be generic
I am from a multi-cultural, multi-racial, multi-national
family. No two members of my family share the same faith
and believe system. We are all equal without having to
be the same.
I remember segregated Military Bases in Europe. I remember
coming to the USA having to fill out papers as to my racial
background. Since than we are required ... voluntarily
... to state race and ethnic background each time we fill
out official forms.
Black, Hispanic, Latino, Native American... list tribe...
Sub-Saharaian, North African, Asian, Pacific Islander...specify...
A couple of years ago an attempt was made to officially
segregate people in prison. A problem occurred when it
was discovered some Latinos were of African decent and
fit neither in the Afro American nor Latino category.
Therefore the project was abandoned.
I read the works of TERTULLION and JOSEPHAS. Both Historians
wrote about the same time period. Each looked at the story
from a different perspective and it was interesting to
cross reference the accounts. Some were the same and others
totally opposite. At times a son would take credit for
something the father accomplished, by doing so loose 20
years in the accuracy of the time frame. Test this yourself
around the dinnertable. Relate an event. You will see
how several different perceptions of the same story you
will hear. The movie Vantage Point is a good example at
Each PEOPLE brings something different to the table.
Each PEOPLE has their own way of relating to each other.
Each PEOPLE has their own believes.
Each PEOPLE are entitled to be treated equal.
Each PEOPLE has their own history and is entitled to record
it as such.
I have an accent, when asked where I am from I say:
'Olympia, WA." Oh no, what are you?
Question: "Where are you from?" I am Irish,
Native American, Mexican and English. NO!
Answer: I am from Chicago.
Racism and Bigotry is more than reacting to a persons
skin color. Educate me without judgment, give me a visual,
something I can relate to, allow me to speak in a way
I can relate. In some areas we are all INFIDELS. When
entering a foreign country or unknown territory read the
travel guide. Understand their customs, don't get offended
if you make a mistake or two.
The art and desired result is to coexist in peace.
When I awake in the morning I get up and take my heart
medication. I then lay back down. It is during the time
period between returning to sleep and just being, a sort
of slumber I think, when I have my closest time with DREAM,
SUBCONSCIOUS, CREATOR or MATRIX. When I awaken and get
up for the day, I have a clarity which I am unable to
achieve even in meditation. I remember what I heard, smelled,
saw, experienced and where I WENT, I may not be able to
recall the name but I can describe it in detail and I
retain the memory of such occurrences. This morning the
following happened. In said state I saw many Albino Centipedes
climb up my pink pant legs. I was amazes and puzzled as
to the meaning of this. I dug out my books on animals,
symbolism and meanings, I looked under insects, snakes
and worms. Centipede was nowhere to be found. I asked
a friend to please check on her computer while I waited
on the telephone for her findings. As it turned out Centipede
is an ARTHROPOD, one of the most successful animals on
the planet. It is estimated there are between 1-9 million
species in existence terranian and subterranean. Terranian
they are great conquerors, subterranean they are exclusively
An ALBINO Centipede was found in the Grand Canyon, a
new race with new organisms. I think nature repeats the
never ending cycle and renews itself as needed, survival
of the species if you will.
Make no mistake, if we... Humans... cannot get our act
together and realize how important we are in the NAME-GAME
of UNISON by the time our cosmic relatives arrive it would
not surprise me if by going against the grain, pulse and
evolution of our home the planet Earth... CENTIPEDE TIME....
Well, you get the picture.
Two more orbits! I will be good to get my feet back on
the ground. It is a one of a kind place we live on, this
magnificent ball in the backwoods of the Universe, flaws
and all, maybe one day we will get it right and become
the people of the Planet Earth.
Unable to sleep, I was channel surfing. I stopped on a
program America's Best Dance Group... HIP-HOP Challenge.
Two dance-groups were given the assignment to incorporate
classical and songs from a Musical into their dance routine.
The winner was a group JABBA WOCKEEZ. The dancers were
very creative, bordering on genius in their presentation
and execution of the dance. Their attire was colorful
and they wore red gloves and red masks over their faces.
Watching MTV and a HIP-HOP competition I ...TYPICALLY...
assumed Jabba Wockees to be an Afro American group. Imagine
my surprise when the masks were removed and the dancers
were of Asian, Latino, Hispanic and Caucasian decedent.
If Earth can go forward at an unhurried, steady pace,
if we can live with silent earthquakes for weeks at a
time, if we can experiment splitting Atoms under the ground
I don't think it is too much to ask to deliver PEEPS for
the next holiday.
Love and Light
