Thank you, Dr. Mark B. Coventry

DR. MARK B. COVENTRY My orthopdic surgeon after Shriners and when I was three. The portrait was a gift provided by his lovely daughter, Martha, days before my hip was replaced on 26 May1999

https://www.healio.com/news/orthopedics/20120325/coventry-was-dedicated-to-broadening-orthopedic-knowledge-and-practice

At the time, there was no consensus among surgeons about the best way to replace a hip joint. Dr.
Coventry visited Europe on several research trips and investigated various approaches. He was espe-
cially impressed by the work of Dr. John Charnley, a British surgeon who was knighted for his pioneer-
ing work in orthopedics. โ€œIt was amazing,โ€ a colleague later recalled. โ€œ(Dr. Coventry) went to England
and toured all the centers and came back with the one that would be the model for the future”.

Today, thanks to the pioneering efforts of Dr. Coventry and his team, total
hip replacement is one of the most frequently performed orthopedic surgeries, improving the quality of
life for millions of people worldwide. In summarizing his career, a colleague said,

โ€œDr. Coventry particularly remembered that at Mayo he learned …

about treating patients as people, not merely as a condition that needed to be diagnosed.

From 6 months to 3 years old,

I lived at Shriner’s Hospital for Crippled Children (name changed now!).

I began to ‘dance’ with Dr. Coventry when I was THREE years old.

His framed picture was gifted to me by his cherished daughter, Martha

– his ‘presence’ was brought into the OR for all major reconstructive surgeries.

We ‘collaborated’ until his retirement.

He was my confidante until and beyond…

My beloved Dr. Coventry’s nickname for me:

SPITFIRE!!!

Thank you, Dr. Rodney H. Peterson

https://orthopedic.io/surgeon/rodney-holmes-peterson-md-edina/

Dr. Peterson stepped up to take the ‘Excalibur from the stone’

– a congenitally dislocated hip coupled with an undeveloped pelvis.

He told me I would have to lie back at 120 degrees

for 8 weeks post-op so the prosthetic could properly/soundly set.

Dr. Petersonย  firmly stated:

‘You MUST have dedcated / relable / trusted support FOR you before I will do the surgery”.

My response:

” Dr. Peterson, I will create

Catherine’s Courageous Compassion Circle

– a gold ring, a sliver ring, and a bronze ring!”ย 

On 26 May 1999, Dr. Peterson was the Olympian surgeon artist.

My body underwent a revolution.

The crucial offerings of sequential Physical Therapists entered my life.

X

Body/soul fitness was always aย  priority!

Counterintuitive decision after Dr. Peterson’s hip replacement:

I became a certified YMCA:

ย * water fitness instructor

ย *weight training instructorย 

*Arthritis Foundation water fitness instructor

*fitness ball and therapy band fitness instructor

*cross-training water classes for inner city youth basketball players.

FIFTEEN YEARS!!!!

Leo and I have a weekly ‘engagement’ !

When the pandemic altered our shared face-to-face/ bonding time,

we would

ZOOM!

I would research/select READ OUT LOUD books on YouTube!

We would ‘share the screen’

and

I would MUTE the audio of the FOUR books

so it was his AUNTIE CATHERINE’S voice reading to him!

After an hour of reading,

we would

DANCE and LAUGH!!!!

Our goodnight is me giving him

KISSES:

chin, both cheeks, forehead, and, finally the TOP of Leo’s head!

John Berger in Ways of Seeing

points out that seeing and recognition come before words.

It is seeing that establishes our place in the world,

but we use words to explain this world.

Despite this he argues there is always a distinction

between what we see and what we know.

X

In Ways of Seeing Berger claims that the representations

of men and women in visual culture entice different “gazes”,

different ways in which they are looked at,

with men having the legitimization of examining women,

and women โ€“ also examine women.

X

Berger asserts

that only twenty or thirty nudes

n the European oil painting tradition

depict a woman as herself

rather than as a subject of male idealization or desire.

I have been contemplating about honesty and representatIon:ย 

the arc, the spectrum of

original to portrayal to betrayal

of the truth/integrity of actual presence

to one’s representation

to conversion to a digitized avatar.ย 

X

Women in our culture are aware of being looked at, objectified.

The gender power playbook is a women’s reality.

X

For women to engage with men who are willing to/ capable of:

practicing democracy;

knowing change/ new information/ insight is a constant;

vulnerability is human;

making amends;

and

men knowing dominance over anyone is not a victory

IS a GIFT

– a true blue

reciprocation/ partnership

of

expansive/ boundless fields

of

FREEDOM.

X
X

Women using photo-shop filters to

portray

their own visage,

their own countenance,

into a digitized ‘honey pot trap’ avatar

who uses sex to trap and blackmail a target

isย  a

betrayal.

The cultural conditioning,

and, in turn,

the need for women in our culture

to ALTER

the A/LIVE self

is a complex litmus test

and

a story of a soul’s freedom lost.

ย 

ย Women who self-represent

as digitized honey pot trap’ avatar

is a code of complicity with women as product,

ย betrayal of truth and authenticity,ย 

ย and

is a player in deceit,

‘spear phishing marketing’ to their ‘target niche’: men.

ALL is a worn capitalist/consumer caricature, a binary game

which is NOT honest and NOT genuine intimacy.

X
X

Loving is honesty,

courage, trust, radiance,

telling the truth.

Love IS

not a portrayal/ practice of gender stereotypes.

Love is a verb.

Loving is disarming.

X

The sacred, honorable gift:

I welcome you to SEE me.

This Fourth of July,

we celebrate a new triumph

over the enemies of liberty

Thirteen years ago in Independence, Mo.,

a young U.S. senator from Illinois running for president spoke

about the Revolutionary War that started on a spring morning in April 1775.

ย 

He talked about the risks taken by the โ€œsimple band of colonistsโ€

when they took up arms against an empire.

The chances were taken, he said, on behalf of a larger idea:

liberty, and the notion of God-given, inalienable rights.

Independence Day 2021

is an apt occasion

to celebrate Americaโ€™s liberation

from

Trump.

The 45th president’s

Insurrection Day

The former president Donald J. Trump,
the 45th president of our nation,
began

‘grooming’ย 

specific segments of the American population
along with the Republican Party elected officials,
having shared susceptibility and characteristics,
to bend/manipulate their minds.
The ‘grooming’ began long before the 2016 Presidential Election.
He began with
repeated lies,
shell games,
gaslighting,
and
binary tribalism.
After his loss in the 2020 Presidential Election by 7 million votes,
he, the soon to be former president,
perpetuated a lie – a call out:
he actually WON by a landslide because of his tribe’s votes!

ย 

The ‘groomed’ and now radicalized tribe responded

to his call with their mantra,

a named coordinated action plan

orchestrated by the 45th president:

STOP THE STEAL.

An INSURRECTION was the denouement
Yet, this was REAL life not a performance
– denouement describes the final resolution
of the intricacies of a plot, as of a drama or novel.
The Insurrection by the 45th president’s tribe
was
targeted with homicidal intent
to
the lives of specific elected officials.
our democracy,
and
our Constitution.
The collateral damage was/is devastating.
His attorneys continue the gaslighting, the deflection, distraction
and practice the typical abusers’ and narcissists’ behavior:
no accountability,
blame the truth-teller who confronts with bald facts,
and
discredit the opposer, etc.
The 45th president of the United States,
the Celebrity Apprentice TV performer
who loved saying ‘YOU are FIRED!’;
entrepreneur of countless failed businesses;
renown bully, liar, misogynist and racist;
documented disdain for facts, critical thinking,
self-awareness, opposing viewpoints;
and
slurps adulation,
indeed,
has

BLOOD

coming OUT of his eyes,

his mouth

and

ON his HANDS.

His attorneys are a clown show – no, clowns are BIG FUN.
Their FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT rap video was WHAT?!
LOL!
Junior High students running for Class President ALWAYS holler:
I will FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT for _____________!!!!
They do not call out the Proud Boys when they lose.
His crew are bed bugs – and will be unpaid and a chance to be thrown UNDER a bus!
Note:
He is such a GR8 protector – got your back buddy – to his loyal sycophants!
Think of his actions for/to his faithful Vice President Mike Pence.

I am viscerally, acutely, sensitive to sound: music and voice.
My soulheartbody feels a voice like electricity and light:
pitch; tone; rhythm; range; resonance; tempo;
texture; and inflection.
Electronic communications, to me,
does not disclose, reveal, imbue as the voice does!

Pronounce, out loud: Trump.
Pronounce, out loud: Biden.
Feel the difference?
