I left the room to go walk the dog , that was a few hours ago. I had made some Coffee, Paul Newmans "Special Blend", somehow drinking that, I can say I am having coffee with Paul, and feel sexy and yet healthy all at the same time. So I put canned milk in it, and some ice, just like one of my Thai patients taught me a long time ago....and let it sit....I walked the dog and looked at The Crescent Moon and pondered how those of us that grew up or came of age in the Sixties, we have a Definent Viewpoint on Heros...It is not a Fragile or shadowed or poorly defined view, it one that is crystal clear and embraceable. We can remember all the Feelings that were a part of the Sixties, the Sandalwood Incense, Patchouli, the soft jeans, and the music. The Excitement that hung in the air like morning dew and the wind that fans it across your face. For many of us Robert F.Kennedy, Martin Luther King, and John F.Kennedy were much more than Just Words, or Speechs, they were Hope, they were Energy, and Vision.
So now we hand that Expectant Air of a Movement to Our Children, just as we had always hoped we would....and we hold our Breath and we say Please......Let Them Feel The Power of a Movement based on Justice, based on Peace...Please.
And I sit with my son and we share Favorite Quotes of these Heros while he loads the Stones and the Beatles into his iPod, and he talks about Obama.....and I am treasuring it...and feeling the Air....and I think about that as I walk and Breathe Deep.
So I finish walking the dog...and I come back...and apparently Harry the Big Orange Cat really enjoys a good cup of Creamy Paul Newman Coffee....he is licking his whiskers with great pride...I am up Blogging about the Thoughts of the Walk, because he is Very Much Wide Awake ......but I am pretty Lucky too...Because I am here now...and Something is Happening.
