Home
Sweet Home


Once upon
a time

Alex Haley
wrote
a book
called

Roots

which made
a lot of people

all over
the world

go
in search
of their
beginnings


We
are not

trees

whispers
a voice

sitting
calmly

in
the shade
of
the
pipal

Look
within

for
your home

no matter
where
you come
from
or

where
you
intend to go

Prof

Unintelligent
professors
think
they are

God

and
would like
everyone
to think
so
too









Intelligent
professors
having

already
discovered

they
are not
God

don't
take
themselves

or
others
too
seriously

Knowledge

A
perceptive
young student
had this
to say

about
her history
teacher

no doubt
he is
an expert
on the
French Revolution
but

he talks
about it

as if
he was
there

One World

I
wonder
if
my students
can see

how
education
in this
day and age
is

not only
about learning
new facts
and
information
and
so on

but
also

about
unlearning

all kinds
of
fictions

taught
to us
in
the name
of

God
country
society
and

last
but not
least
education

Cats

My
two boys
and
the cat
are
stretched out
on

the roof
enjoying
the
sunshine

With
half-closed
eyes
my younger
son

asks
my wife

Is lunch
ready?

Not yet

she
tells him

Okay

tell us
when it is

he says

and
they all
go
back
to sleep

mojuni's 1000 cats)


N'est Pas?

everyone
is
for peace

so
no one
is
for war

Q.E.D.

Long
live
peace

in
Millennium 3

Tea for Two

Sartre
says

the other

is
hell

Why
not

heaven
I ask?

Is it
because

it is
easier

to learn
how to
tango

than
move
harmoniously

in the
Dance
of Life?

especially
when
each partner

boogies

to his
or
her own
tune?
