Speaking Wookie On Vulcan

      In the Galactic quest for understanding, I guess I am always one of those who will keep the worm holes open. If you have read anything of mine I have an affinity to try to get to the whole of things through the pieces. It is almost a hobby and a curse, a pondering of great thoughts, ugly truths, silly notions, reason and logic.

      I am, according to the numerology, the zodiac, the ancient stuff of superstition and legend, mystical or mythical a mediator. Someone who can bring opposing sides, or in some cases thoughts to a mutual understanding of some kind or another. It makes sense, I always felt since I was little that I was here to be a buffer of some kind. So in this atmosphere of charged political and personal feelings, my prayers for understanding of aspects of this has been well.... lacking.

      As I have gone through life I have seen where some folks do things easier than others. From music to careers, interpersonal relationships and social aspects, someone is having an easy time with the Flute at 6 years old than the other one. Someone is having more success than someone else, it is who we are and it highlights our unique gifts one and all. Now here we are at a very unfortunate time though, when the tower of Babel has been built in our societal landscape, and there is no lack of those building and those pulling it down.

      So I hear the appalled supporters of this administration. I hear their pleas of letting him just do his job, and how the reaction of the left is pushing people to the right even more. They say they cannot stand all of this hatred of the man and cannot understand where it is coming from. They say that the left are elites and that the left puts up fake news and is overreacting.

      I hear the left and the appalled unsupportive antagonists of this administration. The fear of the megalomaniac in the WH, the pure hatred and naiveté's of the man and the things he doesn't understand. The fact that the President has to be one for all, or at least act like it or else there is division that tears us apart.

      As I hear the pleas from both sides and the middle, the calls for their expectations to be met and met fully. I wonder what the calls would be if it were another victor in the big seat, but she is not. We are left with a mass of humanity speaking Wookie on Vulcan, some other language, but it really is just the same language in all honesty. The same things are being said, the ways to the ends vastly different, I will make you feel better, I will make sure that I at least pretend to care. The only people that care about you are your own kind, the ones that believe enough like you. Everyone else is lying and trying to turn your head around into their nutbaggery.

      So in dealing with any mitigation any kind of getting to the bottom of it to communicate it is important to understand something. That we are dealing with emotions applied as logic on both sides, reasoning replaced with peer reviewable fear or determination. People want to feel appeased and that they are more like everyone else, it is part of the head stuff we adapted when we moved into communities. There is little independent living and thinking going on anywhere anymore, just varying degrees of the way it is delivered and applied to life. To prove it just go outside.

      When I leave my doors and my beliefs come with me in my everyday life. I am not acting out of fear, I am not leery of my fellow citizens, I do not worry about being a victim of crime let alone terrorism. I treat everyone else as I would like to be treated, and shun or disparage not a soul. Outside of these walls of my home is my home, it is my town and my country, the people that reside here with me are incredibly different and come from vast cultural origins. I do not see a Supporter or a Resistance fighter, I do not speak with people on the subject in public, I do not argue or threaten my point on anyone, we all get along. I am friends with some of the most ardent supporters, yet I don't know that they are or not. I am friends with some of the biggest resistance fighters and writers, and yet I don't know that for sure. What it means is that beyond this thick and thin of running this country, is that we work pretty well together.

      This is not about people as much as principles, not about your neighbors or immigrants as much as it is the thoughts of others. Thoughts that are normally about getting along with people rather than fighting them. Some folks have it easier on this level and some do not, some feel the vitriol of anger is a showing of support and love. This is all the same language, no Wookie or Vulcan, but human in all it's connotations as a plea for those emotional needs to be met, not necessarily the logical ones. When we see that the same things are trying to be said by both sides, that at some point both sides are valid, then we can get rid of this propaganda floating around. This psychological game of minds that on it's surface is baffling and frustrating, but in reality is the same language. Right now though the screams of the Wookies will go unanswered by the logic of the Vulcans, never realizing they were both speaking the same tongue. When we realize that the things separating us is not the facts, but the delivery, we can all order from the same place again.

          This was in my Memories on Facebook...In HONOR of Black History Month...I give you 106 year old woman...Meets the Obama's...

          Speaking of the Obama's...

          Black History Month takes me to recognize the man, who dealt with INSURMOUNTABLY UGLY racism and obstruction...because he is Black. We are so PROUD of our Obama's...Twice we honored them with electing, with majorities, them to lead this country. And LEAD they did. Michelle also a Rock Star.

          Below you will enjoy a cute little woman, meeting her Dream Team.

          Moving down to video number two...


          Our President Obama at the Canadian House of Parliament..first a photo to capture this moment...



          Now the video to warm the cockles of your heart...

          A little History to the big moment...



          The look on his face at the end of this video...Says it all. He is/was one of the GREATEST President's.was in office...

          So PROUD I was alive when he Guided us to HOPE. It takes an amazing man to give hope when you were facing such racism...POWERFUL.

          After Obama received the,'Four more Years' chant...more speakers were presented. Their words sum up how we feel about this MAN.

          What a difference a DAY makes...hey?

              There Was No Good Old Days

              People want to suggest that pre-Obamacare was good, but that is a lie. Every year when employer's insurance enrollment came up for renewal, premium went up and the employee saw another benefit was eliminated. High school students upon graduation had the choice of enrolling in college in order to remain on their parent's insurance or having no insurance. People with pre-exist condition was being denied insurance. Those with chronic illness like M.S. or Type I diabetes were exposed to having no insurance due to the double blow of a pre-existing condition and reach the million dollar limit. Reaching that million dollar limit was not an impossible feat due to the ever rising cost of treatment and medication. The health insurance in pre-Obama was like car or house insurance, you buy it and hope that you never need it, because if you use it, you are toast. However we are not a car or a house, you can't trade your body for a new body or sell your house. You have only one body and sometime through no fault of you, it get ill or a condition develop. This is what the Affordable Care Act, tries to address. The concept that we are human. This is what is lacking with this administration, they have no humanity.

              If You Lost Your Father In Your Teen Years: This May Interest You

                  When Your Father Left Too Soon by Frosty Wooldridge

                  This request offers you an opportunity to express yourself concerning your father’s death when you were a young man or young lady. Or share this request with someone you know who experienced this event.

                  If you lost your father to an early death when you were between the ages of 8 and 18, you and I possess much in common. Or you may have lost him through divorce or he abandoned your family. My 46-year-old father died instantly of a heart attack when I was 17. His death changed my life and my brothers’ and my sister’s, radically, from happy kids, kids who played sports with their dad, kids who loved their dad, kids who enjoyed the love of their dad—to instantly “no dad” ever again in our lives. I remember that day when my father’s best friend came up to me in the parking lot to tell me the news. He leaned into the car window, “Frosty I don’t know how to tell you this, but your father died while umpiring the Albany High School game today.”

                  From that point on, our lives changed from normal to not normal. From happy to vacant. From our dad being proud of us when we hit a homer or scored a basket to no dad to be proud of us anymore. No more movies and popcorn with dad. Life and circumstances ripped our father out of our lives. It changed the way we thought, acted and lived our lives. It changed my sister’s life dramatically from a happy girl to withdrawn, overweight from eating food for comfort and socially out of sorts. One of my brothers became angry at everything and lost his sense of balance in the world.

                  Over the years, I have wished I could talk to my dad as a man, bicycle with him one day for a chat or sit by a campfire. Always something in the back of my mind. Millions of other men and women have lost their fathers, too, at a young age. They may feel the same way. Each of us who lost a father shares a heartbreaking fate that only we can feel and only we can share.

                  You’re invited to write an essay of 1,000, or 2,000, or 3,000, or 5,000 words describing your feelings, your pains, your triumphs or your sadness of losing your dad between the ages of 8 and 18. That’s when the most impact hit you because you were close to him and he was around the house and your connection was deepest and most profound. Write about the moment when you learned of his death. Write about your shock. Write about how you felt and what it meant to you then, and what it means to you today. Write about how it has affected you over the years. Write about your feelings. Write about how you coped. Write about how you didn’t or haven’t coped. Write about how you reacted to drugs, depression, booze, aberrant behavior, etc. Write about what it did to your life path. Write whether you liked him or not. Got along with him or not. Write his good and bad points. How did it affect you spiritually and how did it affect your concept of God? Fairness?

                  I am writing this book by weaving your story along with other men and women, and connect the dots. We intertwine our lives with the death of our fathers. We share a common bond of pain, of anguish and loss of the most important man in our lives. Millions of men and women lost their fathers to an early death. Your story will give them comfort, hope and ideas on how to deal with their pain. Show how you healed, dealt with your pain or how you haven’t.

                  Once it publishes, you will receive a copy of the book. You may leave your name out of it for your own privacy or I will only use your first name only or your full name if you like. You can write this essay or I can interview you with a tape recorder to get every detail of your story. If you know of other men or women who would like to share their story, please forward this request to them. They can be any age. I can email this request, too.

                  Thank you for making this book possible: When Your Father Left Too Soon.

                  Life and light,

                  Frosty Wooldridge, Golden, CO, frostyw@juno.com

Millions of Americans struggle with mental illness and many of them are making useful contributions to society.
