Labor Day is about celebrating workers. Because if nobody worked, we wouldn’t eat, have anywhere to live or much of anything else. Labor makes life possible.
Inside out and topsy-turvy
Life suddenly became totally different, overwhelming. How do we cope? Move forward? To change or not to change and if so, what?
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
Movies for a long, hot summer
Corruption and crime at the top. • Can we change society? • Peaceful protest, angry violence. • Bringing back great industrial jobs. • Friends forever, for a lifetime. • What if a camera could open up a new world?
Words, meaning, feeling, poetry
I sat at a well-worn table in what used to be a store, now turned into a cultural center of sorts. Listening to a poetry reading. I don’t even remember when I was at a live poetry reading before that.
Train 232 from Copenhagen
Darkening images fly past,
outside the softly vibrating glass.
There’s a draft from the window.
Bags stowed everywhere.
