    Why would I come to think of that it is not easy to illustrate ‘broken promises’?

  2. Sean Jeating says:

    Ah, no. Otherwise ruins would be survivors of such promises, hm?
    Well, and if you inadvertently broke a promise, Mylady: How could I know? :)
    Just the word “Broken” it was that let me think of certain politicians and those behind them.
    Were it easy to illustrate broken promises, I am sure, we would see faces. Many faces.
    Ah! No! Really! I do not want to see their faces anymore!
    No chance oh well: Illusion broken.:

    Roman? Ah yes… A prophesy from NostraCherrymus:

    The Italian economy.

    Greek ruins look quite limited compared to the Italian ones spread across Europe, and about to spread again. Are these German and Chinese visitors I see, hopelessly trying to prop things up?

    A fine metaphor for our times.

      Maybe I need to start a photolog of metaphors of our times which can be used by others in years to come. Hoping they will not make the same mistakes…

    Your broken ruin is much, much older than mine. And more accessible!

    A very interesting kind of “broken” :)
