Rewinding to Go Forward?

Michelle’s gonna’ have a White House vegetable garden a la Eleanor Roosevelt’s World War II Victory Garden.  Michelle got the green going with the St. Paddy’s Day White House green water fountain and her new idea is a flashback to my past.  Is the help we need to be found in a rewind in order to go forward?

World news is crammed with flashbacks.  Doctors are testing using maggots to clean out leg ulcers…that’s going back a really long time…shall I start saving leeches?  Cleansing with natures remedies was big-time in the past.  Way back when, the Springtime ritual was a liver cleansing: Best with acupuncture to keep your liver in harmony with nature.  In fact, in China, when someone seems out of harmony with everybody – angry – the greeting is, “How’s your liver?”    Oh,  those Chinese are not backward…they trace back to treasures and go forward owning our treasury.
