Random streams of consciousness about life with a twist of my whimsical point of view.


If you’re at a crossroads in life, consider taking the train.


Fort Nots

5,000 escaped, thousands more were captured and 191 killed.

Threatened by the departure of intellectuals, skilled laborers and professionals.

Controlled by barbed wire and concrete; 100 miles of electrified fence and an 850 mile barrier.

Workers in tears created

A structure of exodus

And separated societies

With Democracy as the border.

A leaping soldier the ironic symbol of freedom.

Thirty years before sides were reunited.

I remember the jubilant celebrations.

Unfortunately, history repeats itself.

And I see the oppression.
