THE UNBEARABLE LIGHTNESS OF BEING NO ONE

The headline is on us. Content is for you to fill. You only need time to look around you and think. Observe and contemplate. Once the centre of the universe, now a pod in an ipod, or ipad.

Up to you -- if you have the time, the perspective, and the imagination.

If handicapped, drop by that pre-fabricated compound in the midst of the formerly serene garden overlooking New York's East River; walk through the former venue of your worldly dreams; look for your dispersed former colleagues.

Enough to make you pause. Enough to make you think: What's really going on? No answer, of course. No Permanent Representative would know. No explanations necessary. Just observe the most obvious representative of our "unbearable lightness" and pray -- or do something about it.
