And If I thought August was a turbulent month, I had a surprise coming! To refresh your memory….I know some of you, having been on that symbolic roller-coaster with me, would rather not hear it again…. but being who I am I am going to regurgitate the fiasco of newsletter time for the September Newsletter.
After sharing a wonderful picture someone posted on FB, everything seemed perfect, except the owner of the picture decided he would rather not be part of my monthly creation. I assume he only skimmed across the story and assumed I was talking about my car. I can almost understand, since it has been some time since I turned into something else to tell you a story. Most of my friends were still in WA. DC for the Martin Luther King celebrations and I was unable to get pictures in time to go along with my story. Buzz Aldrin suggested I use his 44th anniversary picture Neil Armstrong took of him when first walking on the moon. I do not want to deprive you of the Photo, so here it is…before I continue my story.
Guess since it appeared I had no earthly cooperation for my report he thought outer space would be terrific.
A new friend, Selena Fox was present at the MLK March and allowed me to use some of her pictures an hour before my deadline.
Selena Fox is an interfaith minister, environmentalist and Pagan Elder. She helped organize the first Earth Day on April 22nd 1970. She advocated for equal treatment of religion in the public square, including a public holiday display at the Wisconsin State Capitol. She was the person addressing the derogatory comments of then Senate Candidate Christine O’Donnell, which became world famous: “I am not a witch”. MLK Memorial March was dedicated to ALL Human Rights and we were proud to have Rev. Fox represent a segment of the population. Again we thank her for the great photographs she shared.
This event took place on August 24th 2013.
Some of us felt so hopeful as to world peace, love for the planet, equal rights when looking at the multitude of people of the planet Earth gathered with one thing in mind: To make the world a better place. It is times like that we can create permanent memories for ourselves, in case we need to sustain ourselves in times which are challenging, comfort food for the soul.
A few days later my long time friend Beverly Farris came home from the MLK Memorial Celebrations and shared many pictures from that event. So here are 3 of them.
The King Center Imaging Project: sharing the Dream Worldwide. This is a traveling exhibit with a “Dream Wall” each person had a chance to post their dream on the wall.
Those of us unable to attend were hungry for reports so we could see how far we had come as a people, ALL people and Babyboomers shared stories and pictures with the young generation.
Some of my friends are still fighting against the Idea that SKYPE is wonderful. It is easy to install, FREE and gives us a chance to actually visit, share everyday living and Ideas. I have learned to do interviews and so enjoy sharing parts of my life without having to spend so much time writing in a chat etc. It is a great tool to connect, have a look, I am SURE you will like it.
It appeared September would be a quiet month, a time to celebrate the last days of summer and preparing for the changing of the seasons. Festivals, harvest, a new school year… betting how long it will take before X-mas ads etc will appear. Yes, X-Mas. THEN all holy hell broke loose. September was so crazy that even the Harvest Moon appeared to have moved as far away from Earth as possible and in some parts of the world disguised itself as a Silver Moon.
Flooding in Colorado and Arizona killed people, destroyed whole towns and changed the landscape for years to come. That was only in America! Mexico, China, the Phillipines and many other places in between suffered the same fate. A 7.7 earthquake in Pakistan created a new island. It was almost global!
A 14 hour thunderstorm just going in circles from east to west and around and around and around appeared out of nowhere over Oregon and Washington. Some said it was man made. Even the Weatherman had problems explaining it.
Many people lost their lives in Shootings. When we hear of people killed in this Fashion our mind suggests we are looking at war…yet… it happens in our country, in our neighborhoods. How can one wrap ones head around that!? It is occurring so much now that we are desensitized and are fascinated with the mental state of killers.
The hostage taking and killing at the Mall in Nairobi, Kenya was mistaken for an uprising by one of the friends.
We came so close to obliterating many more people in Syria and the arguments for and against doing so were sickening. Universe said: “Not so fast” and to the displeasure of some war mongers stepped in with a reprieve.
FOUR MILLION people will be denied Food Stamps, it was decided. If it was not enough to brutalize so many with what appears to be a distant happening, the sequester; people are desperate, hungry, discouraged and hopeless.
Another threat of Government Shut down… in case you missed the reason….to prevent the Affordable Health Care Act (Obamacare) to take effect.
In midst of the Draconion decisions made for poor and sick people, the Stock-market rose above 17,000.
Navajo Code Talker Nelson Draper died at the age of 96.
Kanashibushan was in the hospital and we prayed for the recovery of our National Treasure.
She has recovered once more and will be celebrating her 80th Birthday on October 4th.
My youngest great-grandchild, Skylar Jade Moore was born.
It is a known fact that some of us are able to “SEE” into other times, dimensions and perceive things not yet occurred. Some weather conditions can cause Mirages, which is not the same, since people can perceive certain conditions etherically.
A Fata Morgana can be described as a very complex superior mirage with more than three distorted erect and inverted images. Because of the constantly changing conditions of the atmosphere, a Fata Morgana can change in various ways within just a few seconds of time, including changing to become a straightforward superior mirage. People lost in the desert often perceive what they consider to be an actual Oasis, and objects they feel are necessary for immediate survival, regardless of distance. Songs have been written over centuries about Fata Morgana.
Events, occurrences and actual truth were so distorted in September…world wide… it was very hard to sort out the actual facts since some appeared to have lost their political minds. Many were suffering from the “Wag the Dog Syndrome”. So many distractions were presented to us and few have the time to sort out truth from fictional problems.
One thing is for sure. The war on the poor is well underway, and it is time that we start caring for one another. We are the people of the planet EARTH. If we continue to behave as we do, our home will actually grant our request and all we have to do is go for a walk to experience a FATA MORGANA.
Love and Light,
PS. here is a short clip from YouTube to give you a visual of what I was trying to explain.
