About Michael Kerasotes -- "“‘The truth is a beautiful thing, it sets us free to learn beauty. Beauty sets the mind’s eyes in motion creating our dreams and visions of reality as we grow up nuturing love and compassion to grow in each and every one of us. Why on earth do the people of this world then believe in the opposite – that the truth hurts? I do not understand this. I do not understand. It is the lie that hurts. It is the lie. The lie that hurts because the truths are never told. Tell the truth to the world, soul, tell the truth and never lie. Ask the child who has just been hurt by his or her first lie. For the parent who lies to protect his child has taught the child to lie. Do not lie to children. Do not lie. Do not lie at all. Instead teach truth. Teach them to dream that truth, beauty, and love, do not hurt. For truth does not hurt. Truth is not a Lie. Establish Truths. Teach Beliefs. Then teach the belief that this lies within each of us and it is called trust. Trust = Love = Truth = All! It is our soul, our spirit, our heart, and our mind where we create our dreams of our hope & create our ideas of fun, life, happiness and us! Would not this then be a world where fear of being hurt – especially by the truth – no longer exists!’” "TRUTH IS AN ABSOLUTE for without absolutes there can be no truth!" by me Mike Kerasotes" "If you believe Mr. Disney was right when he said, 'True Love Conquers All' you will believe me when I say, 'Love is better than Truth - it never Lies!' For as a child I learned that love was unconditional & I built my beliefs upon that and those of Rudyard Kipling's "IF!" His words and mine still hold to this day. I'm training my mind to work more efficiently by letting my soul soar as I work to improve and create a better me!" "Copyright (c) 2014 by Mike Kerasotes""

““July 2nd 2014 a Wednesday Afternoon at Six in the Evening My Nice Day

dear people, today I went to the kitchen at four thirty in the morning to prepare myself some eggs.  I decided upon the heritage bacon filthy stuff with thick slices full of meats and fat.  Yum Yum Yum.  I seasoned the pan the Gwen way.  She was my grandmother and taught me to cook in a pan on the electric range in the 1950’s.  I loved her and she me.  We spent most of my childhood at her farm.  She and her third husband Roy were my only real relatives.  They loved me.  None of the other ones did.  All they did was adore me because I was perfect beautiful and rich. 

you see, my family was rich.  Didn’t you know?  I hated it.  I liked the poor.  Mother hated them.  Too much trouble and too expensive to train she said.  I disagreed.  I said to her they are not expensive, they never ask to be taken to the country club, they never invite themselves over for dinner, and, they never pop in to a party of ours without being invited.  Not like your rich friends who you try and impress with your money, your house, your kids, and your beautiful husband’s money.  There Michael I blew her off for you, honey. 

sorry every one, I digressed.  I had the seasonings, the ingredients and the time.  Besides, people, I was hungry.  So I heated the pan.  Put butter in it.  Waited till it was hot and then poured in the bacon.  I put it in piece by piece.  Slowly.  It took time.  I had it.  I then salted it.  I put in three nice brown eggs.  I covered the Martha Stewart Organics Pan with a Corning Clear Glass Lid.  I watched it cook.  Nice.  I could finally smell the bacon cooking.  Usually Tracy comes out to say What Are You Cooking?  It is so obvious!  I laugh and say bacon and eggs, Tracy.  Why do you ask?  I know you come out here just to ask me what I am cooking for the simple reason you smell it because that’s what you say after what are you cooking….. I smell bacon….. but alas and alac he did not come.  I went on and cleaned up the kitchen, the sink, the stove and the counter.  I took it home to my room.  We have a large huge kitchen with everything but a refrigerator.  The lights come on when you get to the stove.  Tracy did that.  Nice.  So there you go world, there you go. 

I had the room all to myself.  It is my home.  It and I have attenuated.  A Gwen Thing!  You attenuate to your home and it to you as if you are two separate beings.  That way you and your home become one with another.  That means that you and your home are one, not two.  That means that you two things are not separate.  Separate is bad.  A Home That Is Separate From The Owner Is A Bad Thing, World.  Bad because you two things now fight each other over ownership.  Not a good thing, people, not a good thing.  You should never have to battle over who owns your home.  Understand?

There you go World, there you go.  I ate my delicious mean and enjoyed every bite.  Once eaten, I smoked.  I went out for a walk.  It was nice.  It was cold.  It was dark.  It was empty.  I was alone on the streets where I live, Audrey — alone!  I liked it a lot, Audrey.  I miss you and wish you were here to do it with me like we did at my home in Springfield, Illinois.  Remember?  Right before you went to shoot “My Fair Lady!”

I then went to bed and had a fabulous sleep.  I now sleep unaided and well.  Thank you Dr. Greg of the Mukilteo Bartell’s!  Good Night.

Kindest regards,

Mike

““1st of July 2014 Tuesday Evening 7:17 P.M. @ The Library, Everett, Washington USA

Dear People —            

     Today I went exploring.  I had gone to the Hewitt & Broadway Branch of The Port of Everett the other day to ask how do you get to the Waterfront.  The nice man told me.  He said you walk down to West Marine View Drive and go North.  It is about two or three miles and it will take you two or three hours to get there.  Mind now, I am a 64 Year Old Man, and, I am old and elderly and decrepit, sonny.  Thank you so much for telling me how to get there.  I have been trying since I moved in above the Home Inspirations Building that my friend Karen owns and wanted me to have the apartment upstairs.  That was April 3, 2014.  Here it is June and now I know how to get there.  I am grateful and very appreciative.  Thank you.  Good Bye.  I left.  I didn’t go there that day.  Today I did.  I am glad that I did, People, I am glad that I did.  I walked all the way from my apartment straight there.  It took me twenty minutes.  That’s all.  Twenty minutes to walk there in the 80+ Degree Weather.  It was sunny and hot and I could smell the Sea.  Nice!  I liked it.  I walked all the way up the bridge way that they built up there for pedestrians.  The view is spectacular.  The Olympics were out in full.  You could see the Sound.  You could see Port Gardner.  You could see the ship the navy put there to protect our port.  The mayor said we are getting another the day I had coffee with him at the Senior Center.  I can’t wait to see the new ship in our Port.  What a Treat, People, what a treat!            

     I walked all the way down to the pier and then out it to the North.  I think that was another mile.  On the way out, I spoke to a lady sailor.  She had just sailed in from Deception Pass the night before.  Her ship was YAR.  7 Knots it goes she said.  SLOW!  Nice I said and I explained the remark about YAR.  Yar means smooth, she sails yar, meaning smooth.  It was from that Katherine Hepburn Movie I told her and she liked it.  She will remember to tell her husband next time.  We parted with our goodbyes and smiled and waved.  Then I saw another sailboat coming into dock.  She waved.  I waved back.  Fun.  The pier moves.  Not Fun!  It goes up and down with the Tides.  Barnacles and Mussels we thickly coated on it.  The posts were oiled and tarred.  Scary at first, then okay after you walk out on it a bit.  I liked it.  I liked the smell.  You could see those beautiful kites that sail up on the airs.  I don’t know how they are attached.  You could not see below to their boats.  Fun.  I decided not to photograph the bay.  I am saving that for another day, People.  I am saving that for another day.            

     On the way back, I walked by the patio where you can sit at the docks and grill your hamburgers or fish.  There is a Salmon Run for keeping Steelheads.  I didn’t see any.  In fact, I never did see a fish.  Darn it.  😦  Next time, I guess I will.  As I walked up the plank back up to the top, I saw that Anthony’s was there and decided to stop in for a drink.  It would be a long walk back and at my age I thought I needed a break and a rest and perhaps a nice drink.  I went in.  I told the nice ladies at the desk that I had had my 64th Birthday at their new Anthony’s Restaurant at Alderwood on March 9th earlier this year.  The Manager’s Favorite Waitress Had Given Me A Card for One Free Appetizer or Dessert.  I asked if I could use it.  They said they’d ask their Manager and they did.  She came out to meet me and I explained it all to her again.  She said it was good and okay and told me it was Berry Season at Anthony’s and I should try their Berry Cheesecake.  I told her I loved their coffee, they have the best.  She smiled.  She liked that.  She said yes.  I was going to ask if they have those wonderful Metropolitan’s like they have at the Vintage Café that I love so, but did not.  I did tell her and she agreed Coffee was the Best Choice.  I was so happy I said what I said.  She had one of the pretty little girls seat me.  She had given her my choices and my card and my name.  We introduced ourselves.  Her name was Christine.  I am of course, Mike!  Mike Kerasotes!  Got that, People?  Got that?  Good.  They did.
           
I was seated at Table 21.  The pretty little thing told me her favorites.  I told her I loved her choices and settled on their Berry Cheesecake and Coffee.  She took everything but my card.  She left that for the waitress.  I didn’t have long to wait.  I told the waitress what I wanted and she left.  She brought me the coffee.  4 of those brown sugars I like in it and hot it was and good.  I love their coffee.  I love their coffee.  I love their coffee.  Hot.  Good.  And Delicious! 🙂 
            

     I drank it down and loved it People, I drank it down quick.  It was that good!  Then the waitress came with my berries and cheesecake.  She said they made it there today and boy was it good.  She’d had a piece!  Nice.  She was Beautiful.  I introduced myself and told her my story.  She liked it.  Her name is Michelle, Beautiful and Nice Teeth, Mother, beautiful white not-capped teeth.  Nice.  I asked her if I could have some more of her coffee and noticed that the whole restaurant had stopped talking.  The Whole Place Was Silent!  Then the noises started up.  I guess when I talk and speak, every one listens.  Gads, Michael, Gads.  I must be considered a Celebrity People, Some One of Importance for That To Happen Every Time I Speak!  I tried it again when the waiter Bob came back with more Coffee.  Yep, the place stilled and became silent.  Not a noise, not a sound was to be heard.  Amazing I said to my self.  Gee, God, maybe I should write this out when I get back home.  I decided to at the library and here I am doing it.            

     Next came the waitress asking if it was good.  Silence Everywhere, People, Silence Every Where!  I said it was DELICIOUS!  She smiled and asked me if I would like more Berries.  I just looked at her and said YES!  Off she went and I kept eating the delicious Raspberry, Blueberry, and Boysenberry Cheesecake.  Then the noises came back after I said out loud to my self BOY IS THIS GOOD!  Every Table Near Me Said They Wanted The Cheesecake!  No Coffees But 5 Orders Of Cheesecakes were taken and the noises started in louder.  Now that was importance People that was importance.  That’s how you make an impression, Mother, that’s how its done!  Aren’t I Good God?  Aren’t I Good!  🙂’s            

     Michelle came back with the Bill – Coffee Only Mike, That’s All It Is!  Thank You I Smiled.  And finished eating my dessert.  I looked at the Bill and smiled.  $3.50 for the Bill!  Not bad for two hours of fun and food, not bad I said.  I asked if I could have more coffee and she said Of Course Mike and left.  Bob quickly came back and filled up my cup.  I  then told him how wonderful my experience there today was and what fun and how nice he was and Michelle was and Christine and Every One.  He thanked me and told me the cook had accepted my thank you and prepared another cake for the other people who ordered it because of little ole me.  Neat! Huh?  Neat!            

     I got up and what to my surprise Christine was at the Front Desk.  I told her how delighted I was and what a wonderful time I had had.  She invited me back for Lobster in October for $19.99.  She let me have a card with her name.  I wrote on it the waitresses name and Bob’s name and the date and of course to come back in October for Lobster!  Nice People, Nice!             Well, Little Library, People, Facebook, Etcetera, that is my little story for the day.            

     Kindest regards,            

     Mike
