It’s been 50 years since some forward thinking people declared Independence for this little nation we now call Guyana. They were looking forward to their futures, some idealistic land of self-rule and happiness for the masses I suppose.
I think by now, most of them have all gone and left many of us wishing we were still under colonial rule, it wouldn’t have been that bad, would it? We’ll never know, and doing the whole “what if” dance is not going to help anyone.
Sadly, even though many of the idealist have gone, there remains some of the followers who can’t seem to open their eyes and realise that the old way can’t work and that the path the country is on is not the right one, that implementing old ideas, once discarded, will not bring about new changes.
I babble… I’ve been staring at this photo for weeks and didn’t know what to write and now I write something quite out of character and from way out of left-field.
Here’s a photo 🙂

I believe you may be right.
Amazing how a photo can transport us back in time and still throw light on the present!
I think a good photo will have an effect on us one way or another, and you’re right… some do tug at memories and prod at current siutuations
One of these days we are going to figure out a plan that benefits everyone, and prejudices no one . . . and 15 minutes later, the planet will be consumed by the sun 😀
perfect timing 🙂
