War vs. Democracy: Bombs Beat Ballots


  Donald Trump was recently on his first trip abroad as President of the United States. The itinerary could not be more revealing: Saudi Arabia, Israel, The Vatican and Brussels. If it is not clear to you why this is astounding , I'll try to explain. Trump repeated endlessly during his campaign-and many if not... Continue Reading →

The Lucky One- Poem


I am, indeed, the lucky one whose every dream has come undone and where I go, always I see the others who are lost in scenes of splendour, unreal, for sale on every corner of every street.

The Unfamiliar Family, A Green DogView


  What is a family? How does a family come to be a family? Who is responsible for keeping the family together?

"I feel in every girl, there is a spirit, a wild pixie, that if let go, would run and dance in grassy fields until the end of the world.
