Reasons I know I’m getting old(er)

Featured

I turned 60 last week. In my mind, I am still 10 ft tall and bulletproof. NOT! 1. I still write letters 2. I have a home phone (no cell) 3. I use a #2 pencil. 3.The only thing hard about me is my blood vessels. 4. I never trust a fart. 4. Adult Diapers are calling my name. 5. Death seems like a good way to vacation. Thank you for the smile on my face, The Secret Blog of a 30-Year-Old! #PeaceMarshall

The past few years I have noticed a big change in how I see certain things in daily life, every time I tell anyone in my ‘real life’ about these changes they always say ‘ooo it’s a sign your getting old!!’ And I thought what better way to celebrate my grumpy old woman maturing ways than to share it with you lovely people!

Hearing house parties and general noises of fun pisses me off

When I’m in my garden I want peace and tranquility. Nothing pisses me off more than my sanctuary being destroyed by noises of a loud BBQ in a Neibouring garden or even worse, a house party. When I was younger these noises didn’t bother me at all, it was people having harmless fun, what’s the problem? Now however I get really annoyed, saying things like ‘for fucks sake it’s a Sunday!!! Why do they have to…

Sessions yell’s “BULLSHIT” to Hollywood celebrities, Media elites, and Government for sending messages about drug use that is killing Americans. Warns then to Clean-Up their act or feel the heat! Treatment has not been the only answer. Prevention is!

I like the idea of my body as biomass&: bright ideas for your afterlife

Our cemeteries are full, so how about becoming fuel (to heat a swimming pool) or having an augmented reality memorial?

I began thinking about this subject while in New Orleans working Hurricane Katrina. One of the most surreal sights I have ever seen occurred a few days after the storm passed and the flooding began.When the level of water inside New Orleans got to the 6 ft. mark on its way to 8 ft., is when the Twilight Zone episode began. I will mention only one. The sight of caskets parading in line, not being carried by pallbearers on their way to a cemetery rather floating while escaping from the cemetery where they called home. It is one of those see it believe it moments, except you can’t! The thought occurred to me that dead is dead and there is no safe haven where your remains can RIP and the ones you left can come pay you respect. Some of those caskets were 100 yr. old plus everybody who knew the person in the casket was floating by also. WTF!! I have just recently taken care of what should be done with my body when I no longer need it. Personally, I do not give a shit. I am fishing with my dad and having a blast. Anyone that would be sad I am dead will forget my name in two days. The idea of people standing over looking at my cold body and putting on an act worthy of an Oscar when they would not even call me while I was alive and my even be shedding tears (of joy ). So, here is my end game. #1. I found a company, well respected and non-profit, that is a response to research that requires a human body. Not just medical. No organs are used for transplant. I will spare you the details. After they are through, you are cremated and ashes spread at sea. No one is even notified if you request that. They pick up your body from any place you die and it all is 100% free, legal and nobody else can get involved or has to take care of anything. Much need research benefiting all of the humanity is advanced. Your time on earth ends trending well. Win – Win

” WORDS TO LIVE BY “

Is there anything worth dying for? I mean dying when you do not have to. Taking death for somebody else. Doing battle with no chance of winning. Even dying for someone who despises you. Taking on a cause with the absolute certainty that It will cost your life. Given time to consider the outcome, who could pay such a price? Would you? I have pondered that question many times. It was not until the birth of my only child could I answer that with absolute certainty. Yes, I would. For the life of my only child, there would not be a second of hesitation. There are others things worth dying for, but I would not. I look back at history and find many who have laid down their lives. But very few who did so with free will and foreknowledge. Especially when they had a choice. The man Christ Jesus did. Steven, the first martyred apostle did. Help me out here Apostle Gab. Paul had to be woken before he was killled. He once said that he had to restrain his spirit from returning to God until his work was done. I have come to believe that God would have not been able to watch his son die and would have stepped in at the last moment to stop it. I believe Jesus asked him not to. The same with his second return. Jesus heard the prayers of his people and asked God to give them more time. I know for certain of two mortal men that went to their death knowing their fate in advance and could have prevented it. They chose to stay the course and finish the race. Abraham Lincoln saw his dead body lying in state in visions several times. MLK foretold his dead in a speech when he said “…I may not get there with you”. I was there when he was murdered. I was a child and could see the flames as Memphis burned and the Army walked the Miss. River Bridge. Let me quote Dr. King ” I submit to you that if a man has not discovered something he will die for, he isn’t fit to live!”    Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

What Happens During a Near-Death Experience (NDE)?

I have a very personal perspective on this subject. I am not pushing  my faith on anyone nor do I require or even expect anyone to believe me. On  8/21/2001 @ 1:15 pm, Hwy 90, Raceland, La., 20 miles south of New Orleans, mile marker 101, the same thing happened to me ! I was walking on the shoulder of the road headed to where I had a crew working in the Utility co. right of way, just as I took one step from the shoulder to the grass (one foot on/one foot off) I heard the sound that a cars tires make when they run over rumble strips in pavement. It is a distinct sound. Anyone who has ever driven a vehicle has heard it. At the exact second I heard that sound I was upside down in the air flipping end over end and landing face first with my legs pointed to the sky, sort of like I was diving into a pool from a high spot.

I had been hit by a 2001 Chevy Impala 4 door being driven by a impaired driver. Point of impact to where I landed was 89′. The driver fled the scene. To speed things along, I bleed out. I had to be revived 3 x’s. I was fully conscious and could hear and see everything. I also was 100% aware that I was dying, which I did. I saw no light, was in no tunnel, never hovered above my body nor any of the things we so often hear happen.  I prayed for my son and asked God to forgive those who have never forgiven me. I actually apologized to God and told him not to feel bad about what he was going to do to me, I deserved it and if I could erase the past I would. For the next 10 or 15 min I was totally at peace waiting for the end. I never replayed the events of my life, felt pain or fear and no longer had so much as a single thought in my head. Total euphoria that I can not describe. It was a feeling that has no description and never was meant to have one.

Well, I am here with you today. I will write another post about what brought me back and my total anger at God for letting me live. The story gets very dramatic from this point til now. Dying is very easy. Living is a bitch.

Peace,  Marshall

Unidentified coffins are a big problem in Louisiana, especially when they end up floating down flooded city streets.

I WAS THERE WHEN HURRICANE KATRINA HIT. IN FACT, I LIVED ONLY 15 MILES WEST OF NEW ORLEANS. I WORKED AS A UTILITY RESTORATION FIRST RESPONDER AND MY COMPANY WAS CONTRACTED  TO THE UTILITY COMPANY THAT WAS THE LARGEST IN AMERICA AND COVERED MOST OF THE GULF SOUTH STATES WHICH JUST HAPPENED TO BE THE REGION I SUPERVISED. IN MY TIME AS A PROFESSIONAL UTILITY LINE CLEARENCE SPECIALIST I WORKED 21 HURRICANES AND COUNTLESS OTHER STORMS. HOWEVER, I SAW SOME OF THE MOST UNREAL AND DOWN RIGHT CREEPY THINGS ANY HUMAN HAS EVER SEEN OR WILL SEE AGAIN. I WILL TELL YOU TWO OF THEM. CASKETS FLOATING DOWN THE STREET AND LOOKING DOWN FROM AN OVERPASS AT THE INTERSTATE WHICH WAS UNDER 8 FT OF WATER AND WATCHING A SHARK SWIM BY. IT IS VERY HARD FOR SOMETHING TO MAKE ME NOTICE IT NOW. MOST THINGS I JUST BORE ME.

JEFF KIRKLAND, AGED 35 yr’s, FATHER, MARINE AND EMPLOYEE OF MINE.

HE WAS THE SAME AGE AS MY SON. THEY WERE BORN IN THE SAME HOSPITAL BUT NEVER KNEW EACH OTHER. I HIRED HIM WHEN HE WAS IN HIS 20’s AND HE WORKED FOR ME ABOUT 10 yr’s. I WAS HIS MENTOR AND HE WAS LIKE A SON TO ME. HE WAS A RESERVE IN THE MARINES AND GOT CALLED TO ACTIVE DUTY WHILE WORKING FOR ME. PURPLE HEART. JEFF WAS HEADED HOME FROM WORK AND FELL ASLEEP AT THE WHEEL. HE CROSSED THE CENTER LINE AND HIT A SEMI HEAD ON. HE DIED AT THE SCENE. HE STILL LIVED IN LOUISIANA FROM WHERE HIS WIFE CALLED ME AFTER MID-NIGHT AND BROKE THE NEWS TO ME. I HAVE NOT FELT ANY EMOTION OTHER THAN ANGER IN YEARS. I CAN NOT DESCRIBE HOW THIS IS MAKING ME FEEL. ALL I CAN SAY IS THAT I WISH I COULD HAVE DIED FOR HIM. IT IS TRUE WHAT THEY SAY. THE GOOD DIE YOUNG. PEACE OUT !
