A writer ... all my life. A social worker ... 40 years. A witness ... forever. A chronicler of what I have seen. As a coworker once said, "You couldn't make this sh*t up. No one would believe you."
I wonder always: how did we come to this place? So I wrote it down. I came up with an allegory. Another planet, Earth's twin, where the conflicts of our recent age (and current age) are played out.
South against north, just about when it was the same here. Egalitarian society against rulers and slaves.
But, with a twist ... perhaps a different outcome.
