Marianne slept slowly out of this life yesterday evening. Totally at ease, surrounded by close friends.
Your letter came when she still could talk and laugh in full consciousness. When we read it aloud, she smiled as only Marianne can. She lifted her hand, when you said you were right behind, close enough to reach her.
It gave her deep peace of mind that you knew her condition. And your blessing for the journey gave her extra strength. Jan and her friends who saw what this message meant for her, will all thank you in deep gratitude for replying so fast and with such love and compassion.
In her last hour I held her hand and hummed Bird on a Wire, while she was breathing so lightly. And when we left he room, after her soul had flown out of the window for new adventures, we kissed her head and whispered your everlasting words
So long, Marianne”
Maui street musician/busker, Kekoa Alama, plays Matisyahu’s “One Day” in a Paia coffee shop, completely unaware that the audience member singing along is actually Matisyahu (who was on Maui for a 2 day music festival at the MACC).
Gonna miss this president …. bigtime ….
Yes, a campaign blanket, it was all I had. Anyway … now that the Bernie or Bust bus is going into the parking garage for storage we need to keep the progressive momentum going and focused on 2020. It’s coming, ready or not.
Remember, 2016 was not about a person (Sanders) it was (is!) about our ideals and furthering them into fruition for the good of all. One of the many things we should have learned by now is that there is no such thing as starting too early.
I hereby throw Jon Stewart’s hat into the 2020 ring. (*crowd roars*)
Now, given the famed “6 degrees of separation”, please tell a friend to tell a friend (etc.,) to give Stewart the heads up that he’ll be POTUS during the years 2020-2028.
The BEST (and truly “LOL”) moment from last night’s GoT ….
If Sanders is the prime choice because more than a fuck is given about this country then it’d be the height of hypocrisy and irresponsibility to abandon the election just because Sanders might not/didn’t get the nomination.
I desperately want Sanders (no, not like that, don’t make Claude blush) too and it’s a crying shame that it’s more than most likely that he won’t get the nomination. So when the battle is over and the bridge comes – we need to cross it with a damn plan of action to win a war, not collapse in pouty heap of inaction that’ll only serve Drumpf & Co.
Vote Clinton, but keep the eye on the end game. Sanders broke ground like no one else before him. Letting Drumpf “win” not only undoes all that’s been accomplished in Obama’s two terms but it also obliterates all the progress Sanders made and how close he’s gotten our ideals into the W.H. and to fruition. If we plan on being around (or, returning from Canada @@) in 2020, we need to follow through now to keep things primed for then.
ETA:. -if Sanders thinks he may not run in ’20, the squeeze should be put on John Stewart to run. (always hoped that was why he quit t.v.)
