Hello!!! My story started about fifty some years ago with my French Canadian mother (from Montreal) who fell in love with an Intelligence Officer from the Pentagon in DC.
How they met I do not know, but this affair lasted over several years. Go figure an affair that starts in DC at the Pentagon in the 1950’s!!
Then, his wife became impregnated, (what a guy) when I was (about) one year of age or so; that is when I became the *Inconvenience*, who needed to be *Eliminated*. Now compromised at birth I am *The Arrangement* between two Pentagon Intelligent Officers (that means I had two fathers). Off to a Great Beginning, provocative to say the least! Thus the story begins, with some riveting intrigue to state the obvious. Politics, affairs, all from the Pentagon in D.C.?
At the age of eighteen months, my adoptive father (Eloquent and Poised, akin to my Arabian horses). Intelligence Officer from Washington D.C., (Fighter pilot flying over Burma in WWII freeing the POW’s, later MAG in Europe – Wing Commander @ Langley, finally Republican elected representative in AZ) heard about the circumstantial predicament; a little Golden Haired Toddler girl, (little did he know of the napping stealth Bengal Tiger brewing within).
My second father whisked me away from Miami (where I was hatched on the beach). The adoption was legalized some four years later, after we lived and left Venezuela. The story becomes more intriguing as I was educated on three continents.
Born a (de facto) Republican, I learned to question all authority and bucked the establishment when observing questionable behavior; seeing life through a paradoxical lens, thinking – “we humans are the enigma in this universe!” Too young to utter such words, this lent to many adventures alone, starting (possibly) before the age of three. Precocious, headstrong with a love for horses and dogs, all animals and nature.
“Take all you have seen, heard and have learned, put it to good use. Find the opportunity in the worst and best, hone it to a skill and share the wisdom.
We have lost our tolerance and empathy for each other; a precious part of our humanist. It is time to regain our benevolence, treating each other with kindness, with a Gracious conscious thought in mindful action.
Resolve to Evolve.
Extending our Kindness to our fellow humans, nature and the planet we inhabit, we have the ability to change the cruelty, we have the ability to change our directions which is at a critical juncture. Our planet is made for all human life, animal and vegetation life, and beyond what we do not understand. No one person is better or more deserving, this is how we are “Separate but Equal .”
Everyone deserves a home, food to eat, and a purpose in life. “Humanity means: It is our mission, to offer kindness in the seconds we see an opportunity, to all living creatures.
It is our responsibility to make life easier without the guilt or shaming tactics!! Allowing each person a moment of ease. This is what “Putting the Human back in Humanity“entails.
With two books in the works, true stories about – winning beyond all odds, working through 11 Traumatic Brain Injuries primarily on my own (being my own curious lab rat discovering), healing from multiple painful surgeries, I recovered my true self and solutions for the world to build upon!
How we move on with what we have, making every skill and talent shine, creating a new mental reality; is the Art of Life.
Thank you for sharing with me, the adventures, our stories and comments with your friends and family and strangers. I wish everyone a great adventure in life!
