Welcome Home, and Happy Memorial Day
if you celebrate.

My mind has been in the 80’s as of late for some odd reason, and I always seem to think back to movies and music that I used to ponder on as a child.

In the classic Steven Spielberg release, known as E.T. which I saw at the local drive in with my older brother, I seemed to best identify with  the perspective of the Extra Terrestrial more so than the kids that befriended him, and maybe its simply due to the fact that his skin color was the same as mine, as if some kind of subconscious factor was running in my mind.

Anyhow, in 2009, text messaging is a standard way of communicating for people all over the world, which uses a key pad similar to what I am using to communicate this message. for E.T. it appears that it was somewhat of a

“When on Earth, Do As The Earthlings Do,”

type of thought process, so since necessity is known as
the mother of all invention, E.T. decided to use his iszms and

Pimp a Speak & Spell

to function in the same way that a telephone would, which he saw being used on television as well as a comic strip in the newspaper in order to get his message to the desired recipients.

It also always stands to reason that the person who was able to relate to E.T. the best was the young girl, who is now grown woman
Drew Barrymore.

She was the one who actually taught him how to speak her language as she had a need to be able to communicate with him more effectively, even though she was able to intuitively sense what he was conveying better than her brothers could.

I invite you to watch the following video clip, as well as the entire movie if you find the time in your schedule.

In closing, well, this just like everything else, is just some of the stuff that I
tend to have on my mind. How it got here and what will become of it,
is where the journey begins.

A different perspective to consider.

See You At The Top
