Good metaphors here, Henry. People and institutions acting as concepts/machines without feeling it seems. No mercy for the soul who can't understand it and adapt. And so these souls come to a place none of us want to be. Commentary on our educational system most of all it seems. If we fail at that level, then how many youngsters will we lose? ~~Nordette

An interesting take on our modern chaotic impersonal bureaucratic world, Henry.

It is all tangled mess isn't it? And just because you think you are in the clear doesn't mean one is.
Interesting thoughts here Henry.
