Carpool Karaoke

I can't wait to see "Hamilton" next month.

From Carpool Karaoke to ... automakers are still barreling forward with plans for driverless cars, despite five situations, including potholes, that often baffle the vehicles. People are traveling more and making road-trip memories. This also includes Uber drivers.

Hillary's Big Day

As the primaries wrap up, Hillary clinched the Democratic presidential nomination which comes as no surprise to anyone. She becomes the first woman nominated for US president by a major political party. This was expected for years so on we go with Clinton vs Trump for the next four months.

Elsewhere in politics

The Clinton-Sanders race isn't the only contest with intrigue in California today. It's open primary for the U.S. Senate features two Democrats, a black woman and a Latino woman. A record number of Californians have registered to vote today. In Arizona, Senator John McCain is taking the risky position of supporting Trump while he campaigns for a sixth term. Hispanic voters, at odds with Trump, are a growing force in the state.

At the White House, India's prime minister, Narendra Modi, will meet President Obama. Mr. Modi seeks greater U.S. support for the Indian economy and security matters as he tries to counterbalance the rise of China.

Oy vey ... Enough with the vacations

On Capitol Hill, Senators, back from their Memorial Day break, have six weeks of work at most before another break from mid-July until September. The House returns next week. Among their most pressing issues are bills to finance the fight against the Zika virus and dealing with Puerto Rico's debt crisis. Janet L. Yellen, the Fed chairwoman, has signaled that the weak job report for May has led the Fed to reconsider its plans to raise its benchmark interest rate. All of the technical wizardry we use seems to be having little impact on the economy, a productivity puzzle that is dividing economists into technology pessimists and optimists.

Coney Island Revisited 6.6.16

Coming Full Circle

June 6, 2016

There are many reasons we visit the past - mostly to bring things full circle - the feeling of completion. Maybe that's why our souls keep recycling in the hologram of our reality.

On this gorgeous day in New York City, my friend Anna and I stopped at Coney Island - the original "Fun House" where I spent the first 11 years of my life until things changed and I moved to Manhattan Beach, Brooklyn. Still there was always a special connection - many of my experiences blogged about over the years. That feeling is now complete along with many other things that were part of my journey. Anna feels the same. We laughed at how we like to downsize and throw things away.

I wasn't programmed to heal myself - as there was nothing to heal. I know what you're thinking ... "You're lucky". Yes, I am but I was never programmed for drama. I explored healing and energy, channeling, etc. as I posted about them on Crystalinks - but never fully connected. Humor is the best healing tool. I won't get into how people are programmed to live in drama as the engine that propels the hologram.

If I want to connect with the other side - I align my grid with what you might call the "matrix" where one can go anywhere and see/be anyone. I had fun with crop circles and other esoteric topics, but they were just in the moment as they are for most of us.

Aliens ... unless one shows up and we have proof of life ... that feels done also. That they are/were part of our past, present, and future... in a simulation all things are possible, but now it's time to stop chasing myths and metaphors and focus on the hologram.

Anna and I talked about how disconnected from reality people are becoming... how it's looping and all of the subtle changes some people notice and other people don't focus on. Every day less and less makes sense.

We discussed Donald Trump as this is the year of the craziest presidential race to date - with the least liked remaining candidates. What would the world be like if Trump were president? He behaves like a young child who does not know how to filter their comments and behavior. They act impulsively in the moment without regret. Only a crazy hologram could come up with such a solution to get rid of the establishment and the old ways. But do we really want the country run by someone with a childish emotional base? Do we have other options? We're screwed ... or is that the point in the spirals of consciousness, and time?
