Its been awhile. Wanted to write several posts yesterday–for much needed updates on several topics and or engagements–but as Rebirther Sandra Ray said in her book on ‘Loving Relationships’ related to rebirthing: ‘Love drives out all unlike itself’.
And as a consequence of that, the divine gift was a new hard drive. One more day of life gone. Now I must write on demand, not comfort, so I am not too out of date. Never forgotten but much delayed. But I did have many files backup or, or if not perfectly, sufficient to have saved more work for reuse for when and if.
The divine elixir said, let David be lighter. Strip his PC of files and all structure. So be it. Inshallah إن شاء الله. Stochastical noise. The Tao. You name it. So be it dear god. Om Namah Shivia ॐ नमः शिवाय.
Much has happened, since the spring. Paul Beckwith and I continued to work together. We get along well. As many–but assuredly not all–of you know, I do his website. Now at 442,000 views along with 3,200,000 views and 15,200 subscribers. We distributed a ton of work as a true team effort.
In the spring, famed Stuart H. Scott reached out to me, saying, ‘I sure could use someone like you’, and after making his Facebook following current and really generating a big push behind his twitter account–1,100 solid followers, up from 338. Sometimes and as happened repeatedly, we are followed by, how shall we say, ‘specialized profiles’ who ONLY follow Obama, Gore, Trump, Chomsky, and Putin. Stuart might be the 40th. I rest my case. Like Paul, he is also super, off the chart bright.
He played a major role not only in getting the Nobel Peace Prize committed to having a ‘NPP in Sustainability’, but got famed 16 yr old student activist striker Greta Thunberg to the roster, along with Pope Francis AFTER helping launch her into orbit as COP 24 recently in Poland. He and I are enough alike to both be warned, and manage to go on working together. Stuart is intense. He is honest. And he is driven.
In late summer, the State Department approached me about intelligence roles and I said, right off. I am NOT applying for anything. If you want me, YOU will need to contact me. They did. Right away. Fast forward, to late winter, early spring 2019, and people are promised to travel to come see me, and make a report. I am told my skill sets are most unusual. I admit that I believe them here.
Spreadsheet mavens are not impossible finds nor data cognoscenti, nor CRM configuration specialist (Customer Resource Management, software), nor super salesmen who can just about call anyone on the phone, and if there is a way, get through by combined charm, pushiness if not zany disarming humor, but add meditator intuitive who are chess playing strategists who believe in collapse and have visions of what are to come. I can feel. I can see. I am your guy.
My running started at age 11.8 and 48.7 years later still goes on. And even if as is true, that I cannot quite remember the last time I had a flu or cold, since maybe 2012 think it was, but something was not right, so blood pressure medicine got put on the table perforce. Never imaged I would agree but had to. Still do two hour timed runs each week, with bits of infill.
I still work with Ken Kubitz weekly, sometimes twice per week and now soon to be four years latter, have sorted most of his papers. I even cook for him, do his investment account.
I will help A&S with their stock strategy. Great persons. A real delight.
I fired miss P. Just too painful to work in her home on admin weekly. A great person with 20% I cannot forbear. I wish her well. Same with ‘F’ Industrial. Same. Gave up my role. sometime in romance, a man and women can love each other but not stay together. Same in business. Romance and finance. Hard work is just to hard to hurt and suffer all the time and two leaders must pull together to step down and let those more suited step in.
Governor Jay Inslee is just down the road and have begun to work towards reaching him or his key lieutenants, since he really needs my help, more than he can know, on his Climate communications and email strategy in his Presidential Bid. It remains to be seen if we will or even would like each other or not, or trust or not trust. But my intuitive flash was, A. he needs me, B. his candidacy based on climate made a LOT of sense at a passing glance, but have not detailed it, and C. fit with my already in place resolve to meet Bill Gates and or Jeff Bezos about Cask and Contain nuclear power. I am D. NOT saying they are perfect, but am practical. They have resources that can make a big difference out of pocket change, and E. am told both are behind it. So be it.
I turned sixty in the fall. I have not a perfect life or embody all good sense, but am by now a true expert in what not to do in dozens of experiences, initiatives, and project rubrics.
Gentle reminder: My interview, on ‘Extinction Radio Episode 38 8th Jan 2016 Vinit Allen/David Korn‘ is here–money-shot for the impatient, key part at 42:00 min mark. 47:30 for apotheosis. My some representative YouTube videos are here and here (were republished, so view count now way off). My twitter is Heuristical. Not active, but plan to give to myself what I have given to others in size.
Recent interview with Wolfgang’s, Faster Than Expected. Quick addendae, off to meeting. More later. Fast:
