Suddenly someone from past can make you cry

I am at work on Friday. It is just after lunch time. Every possible condition that I am in is screaming at me right now to sweep everything on the table with the back of my hand, crawl on the table and go to sleep in a fetus position. Let me think again… Yes yes the idea is becoming more and more charming in every second.

In Hiroshima long ago
I’m seven now as I was then
When children die they do not grow Continue reading
