Vote, don’t dream

A personage in the Topanga community who weekly reads The Malibu Times inquired of me why I point out tribulations with the city of Malibu government and provide no solutions. My answer to him is that, the rational man doesn’t give the right answers, the rational man poses the right questions.

Malibuites grow great by dreams. All men are dreamers. They see things in the soft haze of a spring day or in the red fire of a long winter’s evening. Some of us Malibuites let these great dreams die, but others nourish and protect them; nurse them through bad days till they bring them to the sunshine and light, which comes always to those who sincerely hope that their dreams will come true.

The Lily’s Coffee Shop 8 a.m. morning crowds are dreamers. They are anxiously awaiting the upcoming elections to exercise their right to vote. They are demanding their right to vote. They are expectant that their fellow Malibuites will investigate the ballot issues, candidates and make preparations to vote on Malibu Election Day. In the meantime, the Lily’s crowd sit, drink coffee and converse on where Malibu has been and where it is going. And that is all I have to say (sure).
