Ring....... Ring......

My cat saved my life today

The cat who supplied the picture of the eye of Token

Bad day for Low blood pressure

T.I.A. S are the problem

I can't say “we've all been there”

Because obviously most of us haven't

so take my word for it

The lead in to a stroke

Anyway, my legs have no circulation any more

and since I tore knee cartilage in both recently

They can and do stop the sensation of freezing painful cold

and drift off into the blessed relief of deadness

and I was laying on my back in my couch with the recliner built in.....

Having, rather puzzled and drowsy, waked up to the unexpected relief of no pain

as my eyes started to go into the tunnel vision and electric sparkles that

Herald near death experience( or actual death experiences, as they will for each one day..

Been there too many times..

slight smile as I recognize the numbness and the creeping oblivion as I realize that

my torn cartilage in my left knee feels to be clotting and both blocking off the blood to my foot

and sprinkling small tiny fine clots into the blood stream....

to sparkle like fireworks as they micromoment by micromoment bounce and momentarily

plug the capillaries of my brain....

Oh well, the tunnel is closing in and the spin and sparks are swirling in

might as well lay back and enjoy the ride...

and my 20 pound cat comes running in from the kitchen , leaps cleanly over the back of couch

and lands with his forepaws neatly planted together

in my lap...

precisely positioned for the best effect

The startled jump and scream

but especially the jolt of adrenalin

surged down my leg and the blood flowed back into the leg like a dam had burst

bringing warmth and the agony of returning feeling

Damn cat

Needless to say I returned from the tunnel

So how am I to doubt that there is a God?

If only because of his practical jokes?

The phone rings...... and I answer

“Who is this please?”

“You are Dr. Walter M Mitty and you are currently engaged in a phenomenal and unprecedented operation to restore sight to The Premier Supreme Leader of all Space and Time.....Do you require further assistance in regard to the next stage of the procedure?”

“Ah, no thank you Miss, I recall now..... Thank you....

“ You are WELCOME! Thank you for calling central assistance and have a Nice Day!!!

Having resumed command of his destiny, Walter Mitty returns happily to his afternoon nap at the sleepy valley senior living center.......

….... later that evening.

The Premier Supreme Leader of all Space and Time made a full and miraculous recovery

Does this have something to do with the anticipated arrival of Pope Francis I???  R&L ;-)

oligarchic obligations in mirror images 

is the best way to describe the economic/spiritual balance.

billionaries owe billions/spiritual masters owe commodifiable goods

I suggest that you look to the Iran Nuclear Negotiations in your dealings with Francis I.  His overall performance is reminiscent of the martyred Che Guevara and Archbishop Oscar Romero. Offer him prayers of protection in return for freedom of thought and achieve detente.  Perhaps a joint epistle to the religious leaders of the world.  Your ever faithful servant and consigliere, JMac.
