other bolos, other ibus

we are not alone.

in gry'ondar, nothing counts as much as being “different”. there are bolos here completely contradicting each other, and still they live next door. there are ibus so strange in language, clothes, behaviour, but still they talk, deal, struggle with their impossible neighbours as if they all belong together in a huge anthill of singularities.

we are part of it now, too. nobody cares, nobody even notices us when we are walking through this noisy mess, trying to find out contracts and directions. it is so different from being out in the land, where every faint occurrence of another ibu sets the bolo into a state of highest, feverish alarm.

i like the variety, the different faces, their strangeness. all of which has nothing to do with me. i strangely feel more aware of myself when i see these others. and yet, i crave unity. i want to be one with gry'ondar, as i was, when we sang with all the others on hydro'gah day:

sad victory of the survivors
splendid joy of them who suffered
raise your arm to those who died
in blood we trust, hydro'gah, hydro'gah.

mmmnn.... to that " huge anthill of singularities" - I'd like a closer look at that, or would I?

Last picture is a must. Together in difference is a great message. .

It's kind of fun to read backwards. I like the pics too, especially #1.
