Lost in Translation

The premise (spoilers) for Episode 6 of Season 2 of Star Trek’s Strange New Worlds: Uhura hears noises then has scary hallucinations followed by nightmares. Finally, she realizes the imagery is, in fact, communication from an alien gaseous species telling her that the Enterprise is causing them harm. Since she is the communications expert, everyone on the ship trusts and believes her. Uhura extrapolates this narrative by verbalizing what she views visually and interpreting it all into a benevolent result.

So, that was pretty cool. I resonated with this because I am of the belief system that our surroundings are a reflection of our immediate thoughts.

In that realm, what does my experience in the Skaneateles Antique Center tell me?

I think I know. I have Shaun Cassidy on the brain. Well, I must. Allow me to illustrate.

Shaun Cassidy starred as Joe Hardy on The Hardy Boys TV show in the ’70s. Now he is a writer and producer of television shows.

Shaun Cassidy has been married three times. His first marriage was to former Playboy playmate Ann Pennington.

His second marriage was to character actress Susan Diol. She has appeared on episodes of the television shows Star Trek – The Next Generation and Quantum Leap.

His current wife is Tracey Turner. They have several children together. I think he has eight children in total? Something like that. Some are into writing and some into music and maybe one plays the violin. I know I did – short lived – when I was in the third grade.

He has taken himself back to the stage. He plays the piano, sings and also shares amusing anecdotes. You will find tour dates on his official website www.shauncassidy.com.

Shaun Cassidy lives on a ranch with farm animals, mainly chickens and horses, but still. He also collaborates with a winery that markets My First Crush.

Am I going to get burned by the trolls for my extrapolation? Lol – why don’t you take a drive out to Skaneateles today and get lost in your own translation? The Skaneateles Curbstone Festival is happening from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm today. Stop in to Skaneateles Antique Center (12 E. Genesee Street, Skaneateles, New York 13152) and tell me what you see.

Shaun Cassidy has an on-line presence on Facebook. Tomorrow at noon Pacific time, he will be interacting with fans. You can ask him if he’s been to any antique shops lately. Tell him I sent you.
