"Samsara"

Well, there was a wee bit of the “samsara” about this one; a veritible “hin und her” as they say in Germany, and there is me teaching a class of eleven students, with nine of them from the PRC, in a building across from my old school in a city that I left over thirty years ago. “Deja vu” teaching kids from those places here, there and everywhere in “Zhonghua”, places I have been, have seen and places I am keen to see again. Oh and Glasgow? Well, as I said a couple of days ago, memories of the past, pasted over, with newer, fresher ones! The city actually feels a little bit insular, but then it is on that smuggest of islands, a little bit claustrophobic, but then it is full of surreptitious things latently familiar that, given a chance, will creep up on me and smother me.

About sanculottist

There are a lot of poor bastards out there being used and abused; it is just not cricket "old bean". Something tells me that ignorance is not bliss, but is, in fact, simply ignorance and in the global village we cannot look the other way.
