News Time (Michael Cooke Video)
From Subud California’s Michael Cooke:
Last night Emmanuel Aronie phoned me.
He is our brother who had sent me the
prose poem (if it really is – well, sort of)
and was the one who suggested I do
the read on it. – When he saw it upon
the very day you saw it he criticized
a few things that I was not bothered
by but listened to. Regardless, he
suggested I might “re-shoot”. In the
interim it was already on air and
doing well in terms of reactions
from people I heard from.
When he phoned me last night his
entire tone and demeanor changed.
He said he’d sent out the piece to
at least a half dozen people and they
all were moved by it and loved it.
He asked me if a friend of his could
move it around and send it on to
more people. I said of course. He
also added that he has friend in
Moscow who wanted to use the
Author unknown as a learning tool
for her English classes she’s been
teaching. I said again, of course!
Then I told him the response my
side of the coast was also most
favorable (some very nice comments
I received, indeed).
So that brings us up to News Time.
Am still off news media. But a minor
(very minor) gem came to me as I
was at the checkout at the market
today – as well as at Rite Aid when
I left. I said to the checkout person
for no apparent logic or reason, “Good
luck tonight with the debate”! They
looked at me quizzically before I
continued with a, as said, minor
followup which was, “And may the
best man – and WOMAN win!!!”
And that STILL brings us up to News Time!
