Where does that creature belong

“Human Creatures”

via Daily Prompt: Creature

The word creature has both good and bad connotations when I see the word or think of it. Most people would recall hearing the term “they’re all God’s little creatures.” Many of us were fascinated by Hollywood versions of creatures, like “The Creature from the Black Lagoon,” or “Sea Creatures from Outer Space,” and so many others that sometimes were frightening while others were laughable. But, to me the most important piece of work from my perspective about creatures by any artist or in this case an author is James Herriot, which is the pen name for Alf Wight. His book “All Creatures Great and Small,” chronicles the many experiences of a veterinarian who finds that the realities of veterinary practice in rural Yorkshire England are drastically different from the sterile or controlled setting of veterinary school. In this literary work I found the deeper significance of “our fellow creatures” that we inhabit the planet with, along with those whose charge it is to care for them when in need. My appreciation increased dramatically by the sharing of this window into a world and area of medicine that I along with countless others have taken for granted far too often! This book helped me to understand how oblivious I was to the varied nuances and difficulties that our fellow creatures experience in life; while at the same time these dedicated people who to me are no less than heroes that take due diligence to the highest level, while providing treatment and care to so many simple but beautiful creature beings.

Throughout life my appreciation has grown and increased to an intensity that I now find myself many times wanting to know all creatures better and whenever possible to help in some way by offering myself up to the task at hand. I have rescued a small flock of farm ducks next to an interstate highway that got out of their pen and were about to try crossing where there was no crossing! I averted disaster and although no one was sure who they actually belonged to. I kept them in my garage temporarily which got a bit messy, but it was a short stay because it didn’t take long to find out who knew what to do with them. I remembered reading an article about a couple that had an animal farm which had become a menagerie of sorts where some people who had to move or had other life altering events occurring in their lives would bring many little creatures, from alpacas to bunnies and all kinds in between! But, once I got them to the right kind of people who knew how to help them, they were permanently placed on a beautiful tranquil farm with a pond, barn and enclosed adjoining area for them to “free roam!” I’ve many times rescued injured or orphaned wildlife from a certain bitter end, and then turned them over to caring hands of rehabilitators which in turn eventually led to seeing these creatures get their, “second chance!”

I know from my experiences that this world wouldn’t be worth living in it if not for all the “Creatures Great and Small,” that are part of our lives here on earth as “humans,” or if you will allow me, we “Human Creatures,” which also can conjure up good and bad connotations! Without going on about that last point, which I will leave for another writing sometime, suffice it to say that I’ve experienced firsthand many cases of countless “creatures great and small,” that I would prefer to be sharing my life with, rather than some of the human kind I’ve run into or had to deal with out of necessity!

Our Government of the People

“we have nothing to fear but fear itself”

Just wanted to share a quick thought or two about the current state of affairs in Washington since the release of controversial Nunes memo, and it’s escalating the fight over the Russia probe.  I’ve been doing some reading at different sites and locations to see what others like you are thinking and I just had to respond to an AOL post another reader left regarding Comey’s behavior lately.

Reader says: “lol !….its funny how much comey is twitting about it. …no opinions about comey twitting ???? its ok for comey twittin ? but not trump?….seems like comey is very worried !

My reply: “Comey is irrelevant, (he needs to be silent atm), yet he is twitting like some nervous Nelly at the starting gate so anxious to get out and running! He was dirty and one of the worst FBI directors in history, and why do I say that, because he got political with his power and authority in the justice department (FBI) and justice is supposed to be blind like the lady with the blindfold, unbiased and nonpartisan, but he was in it for Hillary and Obozo, two more of the worst players in our US Government’s history, who had so much power and authority that it took over their souls and they became evil. All the phony smiling and fake kidding around was hiding a sinister master plan they hatched to control this county like never before! Comey knows there is no place to run or hide and all he can hope to do now is deflect and hope someone drops the ball, as he jumps around like a bag of Mexican jumping beans!”

I make light only to soften the sadness and seriousness of the failures of so many human beings who messed up so badly and breached the sovereign trust of the American People!  We all have so much to be grateful for just living here in this great land of ours, but there now is so much to fear, as the tides of the world seem to have shifted so dramatically in recent years, making life anywhere, even here in America very shaky and uncertain.  But, like one of our great former Presidents FDR said in the early stages of WWII, “we have nothing to fear but fear itself!”  So with that I hope we as a people and nation can remember that as we walk forward together bravely and with conviction that we can get through anything, if we walk hand in hand together as brothers and sisters toward those better horizons! Better days will come that is our hope, that is our commitment!

The destruction of my neighborhood, way of life

The Destruction of My Neighborhood
“WE THE PEOPLE”

What is happening to my neighborhood and its people is now seen for what it is, EVIL. There’s been an orchestrated effort for many years now to get me out of here because certain nefarious persons knew I was the tiger of the neighborhood who would put up a fight or resist their plan and if they got me to take their lousy offer to move or, in essence, get the hell out of their way, then most others around me would fall in line with their nefarious plans to dominate the community with a fake home or property acquisition program. This so called program neither takes into account the constitutional rights nor the lives of the individuals that call this neighborhood home. They are using tactics and an approach that can be considered a form of assault or warfare upon me, and other people here along with the natural environment. The trees, animals and fauna are being stripped away like so much chaff, which diminishes the value and integrity of the neighborhood, thereby disrespecting the lives of its people. So one could say the lives of certain people are being stripped away as well! I’m one of those people and I know for a fact that my life, liberty and pursuit of any happiness that I’ve had here in my neighborhood for my entire life has been cheapened, discounted, marginalized, threatened and slowly but surely destroyed by this attack.

The airport people, otherwise known as RIAC [Rhode Island Airport Corporation], even have an employee that is an Army West Point grad who is one of their main players in this developing story, who obviously knows much more than he lets on about the plan or tactics that were used, are now being used and will be used to attack me along with this community to accomplish their goal. This onslaught has been bought and paid for by the people of my community and sold by the media, who are puppets for these same nefarious individuals that want me and others gone. Just like the over 600 trees that once gave the area life-sustaining oxygen that have been stripped from the Earth here recently, they also want to strip away human lives along with a way of life that interferes with their nefarious plans.

What is happening here is not unlike Arthur Miller’s the Crucible in tone and plot, along with similar strategies or tactics that were also used in the Tennessee Valley Authority project and story, which we know from the historical account that it too involved stripping away the lives of simple everyday people for and by the powerful in our society because they were in the way.

I started out in my dissertation here by saying this is EVIL, and that is absolutely true. The pope in Rome has explained in many of his writings that we now live in a “culture of death,” and this activity that is occurring here in my neighborhood is a prime example of that kind of corrupted, destructive culture we now live in because the people continue to allow the wrong individuals to tell the rest of us how we have to live or get out of the way!

I woke up in the middle of the night today because of this harsh ugly treatment my life was and is being subjected to, then suddenly I had an epiphany of how I’ve been lied to or given a smoke and mirrors explanation whenever I called to ask questions about what they are doing here by this certain employee of RIAC yesterday. He’s been the go-between for me and actually the only person that will give me the time of day when I seek answers, but now I realize his job has been to keep me at bay as they, the enemies of the community, go about their nefarious plan. They want nothing more than to extract me and others from this area any which way they can, as long as it keeps the cost to a bare minimum for them, no matter how costly or unfortunate it will be for me and the community. My life is meaningless and valueless to those same nefarious persons that have their big agenda! Well, God is going to trump them and their plans along with chastising each and every one of them when it is time! It appears that, meanwhile, they are being allowed to show themselves for what they are and take their ugly plans to the limit, so they will eventually only expose themselves for what they are but will convict themselves as well of all the crimes of which they are guilty! Crimes against other people, nature, and God!

I also just realized that I’m not going to get anywhere with my concerns by talking to my local politicians, media and others here in the community, but I will rather need to seek out divine intervention!  This fact does give me some solace to know that we, the people, will always be heard and considered as human beings with lives of value and purpose that can ultimately never be discounted by the man-made world, but will rather be held up as having great significance within the Creator’s most high and ultimate plan.

PS It’s becoming quite apparent that this entire unnecessary project was nothing more than a group of Crony Capitalists scheme to ingratiate themselves at the expense of the Tax Payer and the ruined lives along with a piece of the environment, which I will have much more detail and evidence to write about in the near future.
