Afro American History Month of 2015 is at an end for now. What a month is was! Unfortunately, I noticed a lot less festivities than….lets say about even 5 years ago….. Maybe because our awareness has changed, we are focused on the “NOW” and how it effects us in this time frame. BUT! I am proud to report some of us used social media to inform and make aware many about what it means to have a rich history long before modern day ugliness set in. We were able to share with the new generations what it means to be part of a proud people, of which many make a difference at present time and in the future. On some level…through all the present problems facing us as a people…we were able to awaken interest in history and hope for the future. Someone send me this great article: BY RUNOKO RASHIDI* Moors-Saints-Knights-African presence in Midieval and Renaisssance Europe
Universe allowed me to befriend a young Aborigine Artist from Australia and she has done a marvelous job of informing us how things play out in her part of the world, at this point in time. We can look forward to an upcoming article about life and issues of modern OUTBACK.
For a while it appeared nothing was ever going to change. Turning on the news was like a soap opera. If you missed a day you were OK because the same story was still playing out the next day and the next. Same with Speculations in politics. 24 hours, same old, same old and BAM! Mother Nature offered a hand by surprising most of the country with one Artic storm System after another. In all my years living in this country… 49 to be exact… I have never seen a Winter like this. I started talking about the Winter of 2015 in May 2014. I was obsessed with the subject. I even bought 5 cords of wood instead of 3. The predictions for 2015 were full of trainwrecks, demonstrations, food shortages, illness, faces with 1000 masks and bigotry. It is only February and much of it is already taken place.
Having struggled with health issues again I had to think out every action I took and living became a little challenging for a minute. Just so you know…ObamaCare does make it possible for you to fire your Doctor and seek qualified help. I was only too happy to prove this point and find a Doctor to my liking. I do NOT have MS, it is still fallout from the Reclast Infusion OR one of my strange “Lilian Afflitions” we call it, in which case we don’t know what is wrong. Either way, I expect to continue living and continue with my favorite February activities. I spent Presidents Day at Kohls. Like every year I had coupons and promotions and like every year I bought everything I needed for myself and gifts for the year for less that what I would have spend for Dinner for 3 at Fujiamas.
Like every February the local PowWow took place. I so look forward to it each year, regardless how cold it is and everything is iced over every year. The Vendors come from as far away as Oklahoma and Missouri. Friends reunite from Tuba City AZ/NM, depending on which side of Town you live, since Tuba City has 2 timezones. This year was amazing because while much of the country was and still is in a deep freeze, for the FIRST TIME… I have attended many PowWows at the Little Creek… this was the first time it was Spring, even though it is ALWAYS in February.
The drive along Hood Canal was gorgeous and I felt so greatful for Universe having moved Spring up for me so I could take it all in. Everything in bloom, except on the flip side it is really not a good thing. No snow in the moutains and I wonder what Summer will bring with a draught like we have not seen too often.
I tried soaking everything in like a spoonge so I am sure to be able to remember it. The drive, the smells of the blooms, the food and oh yes, the dances and the songs. Even after being back home for some time, the body still felt the healing energy of the drums. On my drive to the PowWow I wrote my newsletter in my head. I wanted to talk about positive things because it was such an ugly, violent month around the world. Once at home I remembered I had taken you on the trip along the Hood Canal once before and it had the same impact in creating memories. It made me think about the claims and times that people tell stories which happened rather different than they actually happened, this becoming real issues with some Newscasters and Politicians lately. I think it is easy to do especially if a long time has passed since the actual occurance of an event. Thinking back, I must say it happens to me sometimes. Most of the time I catch it and correct a statement right away. But think about it….who has never related something that was different to other participants because people remember things different than people experiening the same event. That ELEPHANT SCENARIO around the dinner table at Thanksgiving. We have become so judgmental and unreasonable. Imagine having to fill a 24-hour broadcast EVERY DAY. So much is speculation and what if’s. They have already sorted out and covered the elections in 2016. And we sit and are glued to the television, we tweet and give opinions on Social Sites. We have turned into judgmental, nitpicking argumentative creatures. We nag, criticize and argue about things we know little about or have opinions about things we do not understand. It makes for a good tweet.
Bill Ramsey, my friend who monitors sounds in space also had news. His intsruments recorded previously not heard sounds in space. They occurred at 7.5 degree latitude every half hour and later changed to 15 degree latitude within an hour increment. Bill thought that it would cause much stress on the Planet and provoke earthquakes at 39 degree latitude, shortly. Renewed or new Volcano activity is also possible, shortly.
After finishing the newsletter this piece of information came my way, so I thought I would list it. I wonder if this is related to what Bill heard and measured.
THEIR SKY HAS CHANGED!” INUIT ELDERS SHARING INFORMATION WITH NASA REGARDING EARTH’S “WOBBLE”
President Obama made good on his threat to VETO the building of the Keystone Pipeline across our land and many of us think it is the only right thing to do. If not careful we will totally ruin the Earth for our future generations. If we don’t think 57 years, a split second in history, make a difference take a look!
