Today, First lady Melania Trump wore a jacket with the words

“I REALLY DON’T CARE, DO U?”

on the back on Thursday as she boarded a plane on her way to visit immigrant children being held at the border. She arrived at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland wearing the green, hooded $39 jacket from Zara. She removed it before she arrived in McAllen, Texas, to tour a detention center. 
As my dear eloquent, articulate and step UP Canadian friend Janet and I have texted each other – as a LOOPED refrain – for the last few weeks in response to DT + his White House’s actions:
THERE ARE NO WORDS” or “CANNOT FIND THE WORDS”
Truly, THERE ARE NO WORDS.

The title of Ava DuVernay’s extraordinary and galvanizing documentary
refers to the 13th Amendment to the Constitution,
which reads:

“Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude,

 

except as a punishment for crime whereof the party

shall have been duly convicted,

 

shall exist within the United States.”

X

X

The progression from that second qualifying clause
to the horrors of mass criminalization
and the sprawling American prison industry
is laid out by DuVernay with bracing lucidity.

X

With a potent mixture of archival footage
and testimony from a dazzling array of activists,
politicians, historians, and formerly incarcerated women and men,

DuVernay creates a work of grand historical synthesis.

I will be transferred to a long-term  transitional care facility from

Fairview Riverside Hospital where I have been for 11 days/daze. 

I am  now at The Masonic Home in Bloomington.

X
My hip is deteriorating FAST

and

I am being kept still.

I feel like an ancient Grecian sculpture whose marble hip has cracked

while in a traveling exhibition.

I am being kept still by being laid into a box full of sawdust.

The local museum director is awaiting the arrival

of the Chief Conservator of the British Museum

for analysis and an integrated, comprehensive treatment plan

on how to make repairs.

X

The image below tells the truth.
There is a beauty to it: an Aegean Sea coral reef found as you scuba dive.

Think of  the  luminous colors, the temperature of the sea, and your body

moving through, flutter kicking, with royal blue fins.

The amazing grace and orthopedic surgeon Dr. Mark Heller,

and

Physician’s Assistant Jeff Ballard

 totally reconstructed my right knee on 27 September 2012, has

 passed the baton/the Excalibur/the Orthopedic roaring blue flame torch

to

Dr. Robert Trousdale to enter the hip that received

a THR on 26 May 1999 by Dr. Rodney H. Peterson.

#1.) My body’s unique algebra separates the textbook surgeons

from the keen skills of poetic, adventurous, innovative surgical geniuses

whose synapses are complex holograms/haikus of diverse/multiple fields

of unfolding knowledge.

X

X

X

X

There is a spectrum of surgeons:

from the exhausting check off the boxes job position

to

the  investigative, rejuvenating, passionate calling.

Technician to artist.

X

X

My  selected and welcomed surgeons are charitable explorers

whose mind and skills widen and deepen with each surgery

as  they research, brain storm and prepare for

and then

 execute/perform/improvise with  both integrity and kind humanity.

 X

X

X

The pre-op treatment  research, planning/composing

and

the OR’s planned and improvised performances

are groundbreaking + breathtaking

 jam sessions.

Dr. Mark B. Coventry was my touchstone of artist/surgeon genius

and

he was my template of amazing grace humanity.

X

X

X

With the unique algebra of my body’s musculoskeletal system,

I carefully filter and, then select my dance card partner/surgeons by:

their poetic, adventurous and keen intelligence,

their improvisational skills,

their creative courage to envision a blueprint, a map, of a wilderness of a place

that they have had no previous training to enter with all of its uncertainty and risk,

their leadership capacity to work collaboratively

their uncanny ability to call out the genius within each of their colleagues with the

non-hierarchical vehicle of a roundtable;

their honesty;

their integrity

and

their humanity.

X

.

On 18 August 2014,

while Ferguson burned,

I fell and slammed directly upon my right hip made fragile by osteolysis,

and

Dr. Heller is paying his respects to his genius peers who preceded him

by keeping me still -awaiting Dr. Trousdale’s entrance into my wilderness.

X

Dr. Trousdale will be given only a compass and the past maps

constructed by his predecessors.
