    As I sit in my car at the border between Canada

    and the United-States. Waiting long minutes, sometimes hours, for my turn, to be checked by an angry guard with a gun, cameras in my face. As I wait there, watching birds cross the border freely, back and forth. Even insects are free to cross. I ask myself: "Why are the...

    Good Bye

    I'm in a prison of my own making for the past twenty-years, and the past can't be changed, but I won't imprison myself again to anyone or anything. Not to LOVE, nor DUTY, or OBLIGATION, or GUILT.  I won't throw more good years away....not even a day. I'm breaking these chains...
