Good morning to you, how are you? It’s 7:29 am on this Thursday morning as I write to you and ‘m feeling really unsettled inside! We just watched the latest episode of South Park and I feel sick inside about it. Are we really going to be forced to vote for one person in order to “save” this country? What about the other people on the ballot? Don’t they count? Did you realize you have other choices? No, many of you probably didn’t know that because why? They haven’t been allowed to tell you who they are, what they stand for, what their qualifications are and what their history of service is. They haven’t been allowed to debate with Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton….have actually been removed from the building (case of Jill Stein).

Here is but one source of millions in which to find out what our real choices are in this election:
Did you also know that even if you vote for who you want, the Electoral College system will more than likely negate your vote anyway?

Folks, we need to push the restart button on this election. I honestly don’t believe we should even have an election day this year because this is probably what’s going to happen. Kyle described it to me very well this morning, he said, “If Trump wins, nothing is going to get done because the President can’t just decide to do something. If Clinton wins, nothing is going to get done either….it’s going to be another 8 years like we’ve already had.”
Do we really have the muster to go through all of this again? To step even deeper into the darkness that has arisen all around us to divide and conquer us?
My vision is very clear about this and that is we are a family. Every single life form on this planet – those already here and those we’ve manufactured are family. Right now I am seeing us think, act and do things from the most highly dysfunctional family unit imaginable and it’s not working.
Who in our leadership will come forth with the courage to say, “ENOUGH?!!!” This word is one I’ve used many times in recent years and I have heard and seen ENOUGH of the bickering, the petty squabbles, exhibition of behaviors of spoiled children who don’t want to share their toys or what they perceive “belongs” only to them.
Hit the reset button, please, there is no shame in admitting our shared mistakes and there is a great reward in working towards shared ammends. I think every candidate running for President should be allowed to speak in front of the American people and “plead” their case. I believe the Electoral college system should be revisited and reevaluated.
*steps off soap box
This morning as I was waking up, it came to me, very loudly, “I want you to use Cocoon, the sharing ourselves example” and after that I saw a movement of white in the corner of my eye and at that same moment Link growled a little. The presence was not malicious to me and I actually sensed a very loving energy. One word: Androgynous.
I found the whole movie and I hope Ron Howard won’t be mad at me for using this.
*In the spirit of this Halloween season, Bing used a scene from Transylvania as their home page today and I thought it was very beautiful:
Mist across rural Transylvania, in Romania
Sure we’re visiting Transylvania—a region in central Romania probably best known to many of us from Bram Stoker’s book ‘Dracula’ or the many film adaptations of the story. And sure, it’s a few days before Halloween to boot. But let’s take this opportunity to clarify that there’s much more to ‘The Land Beyond the Forest’ than all those vampire movies have shown.
Transylvanian culture and customs reflect influences from Hungary, Austria, and historically, Celtic and Roman cultures, among others. And if the Gothic architecture preserved in many of the cities and villages doesn’t draw you in, the lush mountain wilderness of the Carpathian range is a beacon for nature lovers.
