Saturday in the park W/MHWFSystems
My Next Broadcast, Introduced, but really needing This Specific and Pointed Introduction to the Season of Light. A Vernon Nickerson Update. (And shared in advance with my personal Magnificent 7 plus one true Family of Four) Before you or I were 6, or, 7, or 8…yes, we were all carefully taught by our lives in an Always-Occupied Territory, somewhere, some how, still with a place for ALL OF US…
On Saturday October 22, 2022, in the wonderful peace and quiet of a Sabbath Morning, my meditation brought to mind words and music songs my cruel and criminally insane biological father apparently lived by and for:
LOYALTY ( and the demand of loyalty beyond all reason)
- the song: Can’t Let Go, as sung by BOYZ II MEN
SACRIFICIAL LOVE ( no longer necessary for me once I, independent of coercion, gaslighting, and other cruel manipulations as practiced in all “Inc”.( incorporated man-made religion and spiritual practice; note the commonly accepted parlance is of, by, and for “the man, not the woman”. OMG! Here we have the essence of toxic masculinity, an affront and an abomination to homo sapiens in particular.) CHOSE JESUS CHRIST, SON OF THE LIVING, UNCONDITIONALLY LOVING DEITY some call G-O-D.
The very next song on my AI -groomed and curated Playlist ( “21st century-speak” for love songs I have been entranced by for far too long, “ I have No-thing, as song by the woman as a tragic lament of the pain of CRUEL AND SACRIFICIAL LOVE in the modern re-imagining of Romeo et Juliet/ star-crossed and doomed lovers in the USA- as depicted in the film, THE BODYGUARD.
N.B.( noto bene = note Well, A thing(!) not to be forgotten(!), screams the MC Conquistador, whose name appears above his “client”-who-would-never-be-his-lady-LOVE. Her name, conversely (?) CRUELLY, threatening lying, appears above multiple pictures of him, a white guy armed with a deadly force weapon. ( Now, just now, it comes off macabre, cruel, and tragically ironic — because he lives( and cannot carry a tune in film fantasy or real life) and she, except for her records and digital images, has died, not ever to be experienced in the flesh. ALL SO UNNECESSARY!
AND THEN, I am reminded by the acapella group Glad, of the following one-time-for-all Sacrifice.
The Song? AND THIS(!) IS LOVE reminds me MINUTE BY MINUTE, OF A ONE-TIME SACRIFICE. Those who need to know, already know where this story goes.
( Segue to my favorite lyricist, M. MacDonald*, THE SOUL-SURVIVING, much maligned,, too often misunderstood DOOBIE BROTHER, btw.)
Now we have arrived at his* Advent Album, “PEACE”. Which is where I knew months, years ago, when I first discovered it in the midst of A massive, pervasive and profound GRIEF, OBSERVED, to wit, the ongoing and preventable death of millions from a human-engineered COVID — 19 and every other STD men have chosen, to the point of cruel, criminal insanity. And gentle readers, You Who Know Me By Now KNOW FULL WELL I RARELY ( NO, NEVER! ( see the spectacle of the PanAfrican- MC executive produced “GOSPEL” at Colonus )) digress without some educational and edifying purpose(s).
As always, TO BE CONTINUED…

Peace ( lead composer, Michael McDonald)
I have come from so far away
Down the road of my own mistakes
In the hope you could hear me pray
Oh lord, keep me in your reach
How I’ve longed through these wasted years
To outrun all the pain and fear
Turned to stone from my uncried tears
And now it’s your grace I seek
Love won’t compromise
It’s a gift, it’s a sacrifice
My soul renewed, and my heart released
In you I’ll find my peace
Oh Wondrous** child of whom the angels sing
Know my joy, feel my suffering
Shining star make this love you bring
So bright that I may believe
That my way will not be lost
From now on, ’til that river’s crossed
My soul renewed, and my spirit free
In you I’ll find my peace
