Memorial Day Dancing Always NOW!

There are a number

of my ancestors

who died

in war

to

PROTECT THE

FREEDOMS

WE

ENJOY

HERE

IN THE

US

!

THE

PREMIERE FREEDOM..

FREEDOM

OF

SPEECH!

IN ALL TYPES

OF COMMUNICATIVE

EXPRESSION

IS

WHAT i HONOR

THE MOST

IN EVERY ELEMENT

OF

MY LIFE

 NOW..

THAT SO MANY

FOLKS

IN WAR

DIED

AND DIE

FOR

IN THE

GOOD

OLE

US

OF

A

!

effectively representing

IT

as such…

After becoming disabled

from so many disorders..

a shutIN as such..

for

5 YEARS..

My re-entry

into humanity

last

Summer

could not have likely

happened

in countries without

FULL FREEDOM

OF EXPRESSION

AND PROTECTION

UNDER THE

ADA..

Americans with Disabilities

ACT..

for reasonable accommodation

to

FULLY PARTICIPATE

IN

AMERICAN CULTURE!

AS

FREE!

Well..

when i dance walk everywhere i go

including stores..

FULLY IN VIEW

in TAI CHI..

Ballet..

reverse

golden spiraling

style

of always looking

wHere

i

am

NOW..

IT IS A

GRACEFUL

DANCE OF FREEDOM..

NOT ONE

TO

DISTURB THE PEACE…

But sure..

it’s something most folks

around here..

in

Patriarchal RED state ways..

are too repressed or oppressed

to ever do

or see..

but

ON

TV

somewhere..

perhaps…

My patriotism

and

FULL APPRECIATION

OF

MY SECOND

COUSIN

DICKIE’S

ULTIMATE SACRIFICE

FOR HIS COUNTRY..

NO MATTER WHAT FOLKS

IN CHARGE ARE DOING

BEHIND CLOSED DOORS

FOR THE VIETNAM WAR…

IS

HONORED

EVERY TIME

i

FULLY

EXERCISE

MY

AMERICAN FREEDOM

TO EXPRESS MY SELF..

ACCOMMODATE MY DISABILITY

for SPINAL STENOSIS..

CONGENITALLY FUSED

T-6 VERTEBRAE..

AND ASSOCIATED SEVERE

DEGENERATIVE

ARTHRITIS..

TO KEEP MY LEGS FROM

GOING NUMB AND

PAIN FREE..

AND YES..

DANCE AND SONG..

AS MENTIONED TIME AND TIME

AGAIN..

IN THIS BLOG

IS HOW i CONNECT TO GOD..

SO YES..!

SONG AND DANCE

IS

MY

TRUE

STRUCTURED

RELIGION

AS SUCH1!

2

And finally..

being diagnosed

on the Autism Spectrum

at age 47..

with my sensory processing

disorder issue..

movement

stimulates

and grows

the

Cerebellum

neuron connections..

that controls the sensory

integration

processes of human

being

and exercised as such..

balances them

and soothes them as such..

so next time

ya see an autistic child or adult..

spinning..

rocking

or

flapping their hands..

please remember

it is

a

natural accommodation

for their

natural

disability

in life..

to enable themselves

to be free of discomfort

and participate

in

humanity2…

Well..

i think i outlined my

RIGHT TO DANCE

FREELY

IN THE US..

AS PATRIOTIC

EXPRESSION..

OF FULLY

TAKING

THE RIGHTS

OF LIVING

IN

THE

GOOD OLE

US..

THAT MY COUSIN

FREELY

DIED

FOR

!

AND SO MANY OTHERS!

TO

SET

ME AND ALL OTHERS

WHO LIVE HERE

FREE!

And while i appear to be the only

one

taking full advantage

of dancewalking everywhere i go..

i encourage everyone to do the same..

in a peaceful way as i do..

to

FULLY EXPRESS..

AND ENJOY

THE FREEDOM

OF EXPRESSION

THAT ALL THOSE FOLKS

DIED

FOR

IN WARS..

TO CONTINUE

TO SECURE FOR US..

SOMETIMES

PROPERLY JUSTIFIED

BY ADMINISTRATION FOLKS..

BUT

SADLY..

DEATH THAT SHOULD

NOT BE REQUIRED AS SACRIFICED

IN WARS

ABOUT MONEY

INSTEAD

OF

FREEDOM

FOR

ALL

US

CITIZENS

IN

RIGHT

OF SUCH..!

THROUGH THE CONSTITUTION

OF

THE

US!

Well..

back to freedom and all of that..

Private stores are required by law

to

allow reasonable accommodation

under the

ADA

and

required by law

to allow folks

to reasonably practice the

customs of their religion

like Muslim head dress

and such as that..

And i doing my

DANCE WALKING

IN APPROXIMATELY

50 STORES

FOR OVER 1400

MILES

NOW..

Since September 2013..

definitely encounter

some folks

trying to dissuade me from doing this..

in snide looks…

and a few store officials that don’t understand

US

rights as such..

for

FULL FREEDOM

OF PARTICIPATING

HERE

AS US

CITIZENS…

Well..

all my roadblocks to be free

are resolved

except for one place..

CORDOVA MALL..

PENSACOLA..FL..

Where on December 21st

2013

the Operations manager

there

told me i could

not do it in areas where folks

were not walking

as

i do it this way anyway..

where crowded areas are..

as to not make anyone too uncomfortable..

in the ‘uncanny’ sense..

if ya will..

in seeing a human doing something..

new they haven’t seen

before…

After that..

i limit my dancing in that mall

to the extreme..

only doing it

in isolated halls

leading outside the store

and areas where hardly anyone

walks..

And last Wednesday..

security tells me

REVERSE WALKING OF ANY KIND

IS TOTALLY

DISALLOWED

NOW

IN THE WHOLE MALL..

Well..

okay..

it’s their mall not mine..

i comply and ask if it is

OK..

just to sway my hips and arms a little.

to make my center of gravity lower at my hips..

instead of structurally compromised

area..

at my spine as such..

and security tells me..

ya’ll have to speak

to mall management

to get authority to sway..

i’m thinking

OMG..!

this is kinda

REALLY CRAZY..!

BUT NEVER THE LESS..

i am a law abiding citizen

so i let him take me to

his leader…

And when i arrive..

i tell the mall manager all

about IT..

kinda like this..

Except at the end i forget to

ask him if i can sway my hips and arms..

in walking in the mall..

i go back quickly and ask that

question that the head of store

security

says..

only MALL MANAGEMENT CAN ANSWER..

AND

THE MALL MANAGER AT FIRST

SAYS YES..

BUT HIS SECURITY

MANAGER..

CONVINCES HIM

TO SAY NO..

Well at this point..

they finally broke my anger point..

and i tell ’em

this is too much..

i may seek legal assistance

from the

provisions provided as such

through

the

ADA

again..

THE

AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES

ACT..

TO PROTECT FOLKS

IN SITUATIONS

JUST LIKE THIS..

There are plenty of other stores i can

do this in and simply ignore

CORDOVA MALL..

BUT IT AIN’T JUST ABOUT ME..

IT’S ABOUT OTHER FOLKS

WITH SEEMINGLY

INVISIBLE DISABILITIES..

AS YES..!

MY

ATTENTION TO MY ACCOMMODATION..

FOR MY SO CALLED DISABILITY

MAKES ME LOOK

KINDA

LIKE

A

PRO

ATHLETE

NOW…2

AND

yes!

i dont really wanna go to

Cordova Mall anyway..

my wife is permanently disabled

with

a form of Epilepsy where she cannot drive

and i must accompany her where she goes…

The mall manager in

TOTAL EFFECT

IS NOT ONLY TAKING MY

USA

RIGHT

AWAY FOR REASONABLE

ACCOMMODATION

FOR DISABILITY

TO FULLY

PARTICIPATE IN AMERICAN

CULTURE AS SUCH..

HE IS ALSO

TAKING

MY WIFE’S

RIGHT AWAY TO GET THERE

TOO..

WHICH

IS

ENOUGH FOR ME

TO PERHAPS

TRULY

PURSUE THIS FURTHER..

WITH THE LAW

THAT

CAN

ENFORCE

MY

RIGHTS

AS

A

US

CITIZEN..

SO

I SAY THIS..

TO TRULY

HONOR

THOSE WHO DIED FOR US

AS WE CELEBRATE THIS MEMORIAL

DAY..

THE BEST WAY

i THINK TO HONOR THEM..

IS TO ALWAYS

EXERCISE

AND FIGHT

FOR Y0UR FREEDOM

OF

EXPRESSION!

IN THE GOOD

OLE

USA

!

And yes..

finally again..

since Halloween of 2013..

my wife

decides to videotape me

once

again..

PANDA DANCE WALKING

on the River Walk

as such..;)

Yup..

i guess this deserves

ITS

own

poetic post..

more to come on that..

in the next post

but here it is

along with the

last

video

she did of me..

on

HALLOWEEN

2013..:)

    what good are our freedoms if we dont use them…and good on you for dancing on…there will always be people that dont understand…and that is ok…its their lives, let them waste it…i def appreciate the sacrifices made to give them to me…and what a cool eagle statue as well….

    • Thanks Brian for that encouraging response..
      After the worst pain known to mankind..
      for over 5 years..
      the ‘hater’ as such..
      or those who cannot understand…
      can do whatever..
      tHere is an entire world to dance in..
      and
      Yes..i am free..:)!
      and best of all..completely without pain….
      but if dance did it..
      i too..hope i can encourage someone else
      to be this free2…:)!

  2. claudia says:

    def. we should never stop fighting for peace – and in this we honor those that did before us – my idea of fighting is def. without weapons – i wish we could learn to respect and talk to each other despite the differences

    • Yes..i agree..and the only answer for me is to..

      Never..ever..Never..ever..give up on communication with any other folks regardless of the differences of being..simply human being..:)!

    Wow. … Keep dancing. Keep honouring those who made the ultimate sacrifice by living freely. And Enjoy it! – Vivienne, of OneVoicePoetry

  4. Mary says:

    I really liked the monument to the soldier known only to God. I saw a lot of such monuments when I was in France & Belgium a couple weeks ago. We really do need to appreciate the sacrifices so many have made for our freedom. And yes, dance on. We all need to dance on as we please, each enjoying his/her own journey.

    • Mary..i love that monument so much too..as there are so many unsung heroes of country and GOD..while so few in comparison..are lauded for their efforts…
      Which is OK..as true warriors of peace and love..needs no praise…have a great day..peace..blessings and most of ALL! FREEDOM TO YA TOO..and of course..smiles..:)2!

  5. Walking backwards is not allowed? I had no idea that was against the rules in some places…. Yes, to remove your liberty in that way is not the kind of freedom I appreciate, not at all. Thank you for educating, for explaining and enlightening. And do, please do, keep on dancing.

    • Well..it’s so ridiculous it’s almost amusing and an only an issue at the big metro mall..made by the renta cops….and mall management..ignorant as such…

      But considering they refused to verbally approve my request to at least sway my hips and arms..there is no doubt as ironic as it may seem..that i am being discriminated against there for my ‘pro athlete’ looks as they cannot see my invisible disability..of pain and numbness in my legs..when i cannot accommodate my disability with TAI CHI..reverse unusual form of dance walking as such…

      i suppose they are afraid..that i am a rogue bull that will lose control of my graceful ballet like dance done in peace not strife..and perhaps i will mow a crowd down..like a raging halfback at 222LBS..in a stadium as such…

      But i did go back..as after seeing someone my age..when leaving the office of the mall manager..obviously not as robust looking sway their arms completely stretched out..gracefully as i..i did it anyway..when i went back..

      And none of the security force harassed/bothered me..but if they do..at any time in the future..for simple swaying my arms and hips forward as such..in a graceful walk..i am gonna make it a legal ISSUE THEN FOR SURE..per my USA rights under the Americans with Disabilities ACT..and being a citizen in general…as it stands…

      Whether i look like a pro football player or not..

      FREEDOM IS WORTH THE FIGHT…
      WHATEVER IT TAKES..
      WITHIN THE GUIDELINES OF THE LAW..:)

  6. scotthastiepoet says:

    You speak true, my friend – dance on for sure… Regards Scott http://www.scotthastie.com

  7. billgncs says:

    freedom is a consumable – if we don’t protect it, others will consume it. Good for you!

  8. Dance — the best thing a man can do… and yes I will not visit that mall.. Sometimes I feel the urge to dance as well.. 🙂
