Subject: Re: 27+ Beautiful People... what an Amazing Vacation!!!!
Date: Mon, 17 Jul 2006 21:59:50 -0600
Dear Sean,
I was pleased to get your e-mail. I thought that perhaps as you
digested our story you had decided that it was not what you wanted
after
all. We did have a grand time. Our children and grandchildren live in
many
different parts of the country. Staying a week at Sedona gave our
family
members an opportunity to catch up with one another and establish
stronger
family ties. As their mother, I was particularly pleased so see them
visit,
play and show great love one to one another.
I found Sedona to be much more than I had expected it to be. What
a
beautiful part of the world I got to explore and enjoy by coming to
your
resort. We were treated royally by most of your personel and hated to
leave.
The fires broke out 2 days into our stay. Surprisingly it only
disrupted our visit to Slide Rock and picnicing in Oak Creek Canyon,
that we
had all looked forward to. We were able to hike and swim in another
swiming
hole like I did when I grew up in Idaho. I love taking our family
members
back into nature to enjoy and express gratitude for all God has given
us.
After returning to Albuquerque, we had a hard time finding
information
to tell us about the development of the fire. I hope that lack of
information was indicative that it did not go into Oak Creek Canyon.
I loved Sedona and want to return.
I will gather pictures and send them to you. I hope that you can
find
an incentive to help us with our family reunion in 2 years.
Keep in touch.
Joan Ritchie

4:04 pm - statement in progress
to whom it may concern,
the following is an account of events i have encountered during the eighteen months i have been stationed aboard the USS Kitty-Hawk. it is my hope that in reading this statement, those whom find themselves of the capacity to provide guidance and assistance, in regards to my grievances, may, finally, be compelled to do so. it would not be accurate to account however too long have the wrongs i have suffered at the hands of others gone unanswered.

Subject: HELP

AVCM Atherton,
I have currently found my self at a loss. Situations surrounding me are out of my control and I do not know what to do about them. This is why I am writing to you now. Since my induction into this command you have been the only authoritive figure whom has presented himself as a genuine means of help or advice.
I realize you are very busy; however, if the proverbial “open door” you have extended to me is still available, may I take this opportunity to respectfully request a moment of your time in the way of a brief conference? I have prepared a small list of concerns of which I feel their address is detrimental to my continued outstanding service in this administration. As I have previously expressed, I am currently at a loss for resources.
If you find yourself able to concede with such a request, may I ask that in your response to this email you include a time, upon your earliest convenience, at which we may confer?
Thank you for your consideration. I will make sure to check my email regularly.

V/R,

7:58 am - lucid dream
So anyways.... What if people were intended to sleep more than they are awake? Think about it! Life sucks! There are way too many rules; laws, morals, ethics, gravity, etc.. When you're dreaming, however, u r worry free. There are no rules! You don't need a job, u don't need school, u don't have to worry about bills, u don't need cars, everything we base our whole existence on is all bullshit. What if we (people) can devise a way to cram all the necessary basic elements of survival (food, drink, sex & the procurement of shelter) into significantly smaller portions of the 24-hour period we call a day.
Think about it; a day with maybe six hours dedicated to essential survival efforts, and the rest completely committed to a boundless, and far superior plane of existence, which we currently call sleep.
In this idea of a world I am entertaining there would be no crime... no oppression... no hunger (people would not need to eat as much due to the minimal expenditure of energy). Everyone could live their dream life precisely to their choosing; you could be filthy rich, have a million girls, own anything you want, fly, have superhuman strength, transform into other beings, the limits are as endless as the imagination.
It all sounds weird at first, but how weird is it really? Here are some facts of life that support my idea of a world of lucid dream
· When you are a baby, you are perfectly comfortable sleeping for the majority if not all of a day. As you grow u r inculcated to remain awake for longer periods of time.
· People, while awake are scientifically proven to be utilizing only about 10% of their brains potential. Think about how much more of your brain u can use while asleep due to being free from the confines of physics and bodily limitations.
· Overpopulation is a serious problem plaguing the world today. This is not because the earth can’t support the population; it is because the modern human has such a large demand for space and materials. In a world of lucid dreams, the space and material requirement of all people would be significantly lessened.
· People don’t know how to deal with pollution and trash. These problems would not exist in a world of dreams. You do not need cars, and you do not need bagged and boxed foods.
I realize that it is not always that easy to be in control of your dreams; however, I believe that once the body accepts and adapts to these proposed longer hours of sleep, then an almost conscious control of dreams would be easily attainable.

………..Just food for thought... tell me what u think.

fellow compatriots,
too long has it been since the meeting of the minds. join me, my friends; perfect your art, present your opinions, petition the ways of the world. I have found the key to solace, - a magical place- a place of color and fantasy in an all too real, stifling prison of gray. nightly I bask in the warm glow of escape and inspiration; an escape of which I profess, nightly, is only eclipsed by a tell-tale, subconscious longing to share in these imbuing rays of comfort with those of whom I deem so worthy and so right as to bask beside me.
"selfish" the gods would croon -shhh-, you can almost hear them.
tomadachi, compadres, my friends and country men... to keep such a place of wonder and merriment sheltered alone would be a blasphemy of Zen to the highest degree, a genuine plight of karmatic suicide, and a curse I should fear to shoulder to the very marrow.
thus, my fellow soul inquisitors, allow me to gratefully extend my sincerest, encouraging, desire; please join me in the place I've come to know as my temple of chi, my dojo of delight, my mosque of merriment... MY MEZZANINE.
YOU
ARE
INVITED!!!!
a splendid time is guaranteed for all!!!!!!!

7:48 am
I am writing this statement in response to a counseling chit for falling asleep. I am not going to even address whether or not I think this counseling is just. However, I do think there are a few important things to note about the events leading up to this “infraction.” I would like those who will be reading and routing this to consider the following.
First, last night, those privy to view this counseling, slept cozily in a bed while myself and my colleauges were expected to sleep on a four inch mattress, in a tiny berthing barge rack. Within said rack, I have not seen one person (notably, including myself) who has been made available a correct set of curtains, nor anything that will even stay securely fastened as a satisfactory substitute. Among other insufficiencies in my assigned place of rest, there are currently many shower curtains missing and there is a definite and consistent lack of very important hygenial amenities, i.e., TOILET PAPER, paper towels, etc.
Secondly, I think those who are permitted to drive themselves to work everyday, should act more slowly to forget that our current location is deep in the clutches of a menacing rain season. As an example of why I bring this to any ones’ attention, I would care for one to know that even though it is currently past noon, as I write this, my boots, socks, and feet are still wet, cold, and hurting from the miserable commute, by foot, through typhoon condition weather that is required in order to make it to work.
Lastly, I believe there is much credit to be given to the medial nature of the work, of which I have currently been tasked to complete (outside of my own rate). Maybe it could be called a major deficiency of character on my part but I would be lying if I said I was well suited for mindlessly transferring endless streams of data from paper reports to electronic, computer based programs; those of which programs do not work properly, more often then not.
Still, I must admit, I am guilty of committing a few touch-and-go’s (so to speak) during this tedious task of data entry. Really I don’t know what to say, except I’m sorry… as much as it may be frowned upon, due to the serious nature of our work, I AM STILL HUMAN.
Maybe it’s because I’m fending off the misery and sickness of being wet in an air-conditioned work center.
Maybe it’s because I just can’t seem to get a good nights sleep anymore, regardless of how hard I try.
Maybe it’s because, as much as I have requested (and at one time proven myself to be an outstanding and worthy candidate) that this command allow me to pursue more challenging lines of duty (i.e., SARS Swimmer) I am still not any closer to achieving those goals; in fact it’s fair to say that I have been moved significantly in the opposite direction.
Maybe, it’s not just in my head anymore. Maybe the recent terrible feelings of claustrophobia and anxiety I have begun to experience, as the result of consistent unfair treatment at the hands of the command, have manifested themselves into real afflictions of which I may need help.
Consequently, please understand that I no longer consider my immediate Chain of Command, EO, Navy Chaplains, or the CMC as possible avenues of help; as many records will show, I have patiently and numerously attempted to utilize each of these resources, each disappointingly, to no avail.
Maybe I should just keep getting written up. Maybe that will somehow, magically make everything better.
In closing, I would like to add… it seems that there is a general misunderstood, consensus, by those immediately superior to me in my chain of command, that I am some sort of a “shit bag”, or a “problem for concern”. In response, I would care to note that this demeanor towards me is not one of ambiguity. I assure you it is and has been sensed loud and clear, and as any remedial leadership training would conclude, an attitude of this sort (and worse, actions, treatment, and reprisal under such) could only negatively precipitate the very “problems”, already perceived.
Sorry once again… thank you once again,
V/R

8:24 am - public protesters:
two concerns come to mind:
1. it seems to me that a mass public gathering of people during a high terror alert is a bad idea. i sincerely hope these protesters aren't so far jaded by their unrealistic visions of peace that they think a terrorist would abstain from an opportunity to practice their inhumane ways simply due to said potential victims' political views.
2. these self proclaimed peace practitioners must further realize that in the event of an actual terrorist attack their un-orderly and often violent protests greatly diminish the potential of our homeland police and security forces to stave off or respond to such an occurrence by distracting said forces' from tending to normal preventative and protective duties.

what the fuck? i'm in japan right now. it sounds weird but it really hasn't hit me yet. everything is so different and it is definitely gonna take some getting used to. so far i dig it. the food here is sooooooooooo good. japan is very rich in history and culture. it has hundreds of years of philosophies, art, empires, revolutions, religions, wars, and celebrations. in contrast with the states it has a much richer lineage. usa's history is pretty much limited to a revolt, a revolution, a colonization, and genocide. don't get me wrong i love the united states, it just feels good to experience something different. japan's history has skeletons in it's closet as well, but there is a lot of beauty to be found in this country.
so far my experience here has been great but as time goes on, i miss my girlfriend more and more. every little thing i see reminds me of her and us. all that gets me by is the fact that i can talk to her on the phone almost every day (even though it costs a fortune.)
damn, the navy is pissing me off right now. where the hell is my ship? i want to get in to the action. oh well... i'll be there soon enough. perhap's i should enjoy the shore while i can.
well that's it from me for now. i don't feel much like typing right now.
in closing i would like to say, "love my girl" and "it's allright, i still got my guitar". <namethesongs?!?
