Forever running….

Drifting off to sleep, with the glow of the red-hot lava bouncing off the clouds of steam and gas… it was a fitful night…

I woke with a start, my heart racing… feeling out of breath as if I had been running, then the flash of the nightmare showed it’s ugly face….an it was gone…

Standing at the kitchen window, viewing the bright red glow of the lava, hearing explosions off in the distance, a faint waft of noxious odor… I turn to go back to bed…

My brain wants to pursue the dream, so I drift back off to see what waits behind door number 2….

I’m running again… I am little, less than 50 pounds and I am being beat upon… there is no escape and I wake again, this time with a scream upon my lips…

Once again I shuffle to the kitchen for a drink of water and I see the reflection of the red glow of the lava bouncing off the window… Once again I hear explosions and get a waft of foul odor…

Ironic, my environment is mimicking my nightmares… 

No one knows how long the eruption will continue… it is impacting only 4% of Hawaii and the rest of the islands are inviting you to come enjoy some Aloha…

The depression has slithered off for now and it’s just listening to the island birds and the sound of life going on around me… houses being built… surfers and fishermen alike going down the road to enjoy the beauty of Hawaii… Mild weather and great people, what more could you ask for…

Some sleep would be nice… but we are on Pele’s schedule… she will let us rest when she is done…

Domestic violence, rape and assault are not new in America or the world... but it is accepted in the highest offices of our government in America... The catholic church, in congress and the white house... you can use and abuse people as long as you can make everyone believe the words coming out of your mouth.... My body shows the evidence of domestic violence and Air Force cover up... I am just one among millions whose government was complicit in rape and domestic violence... Until women step up and vote with their voice... Men in power, will protect men in power and do it in the name of your god and country.... Your voice, your vote...
