      You know, Monica, there was no such a thing as the borderline when we human beings first began living on this globe. The people enjoyed living with full blessings from the nature. But political leaders appeared and started to claim their domains of power and wealth by drawing borderlines. This caused many conflicts among the people and millions of them have been sacrificed. Now we are about to have a powerful multi-billionaire leader who seems to be seriously thinking of building a wall on the borderline. I have a tremendous fear, Monica.

    Sometimes i wish i had wings too🙂

    • AshiAkira says:

      I know you said politics was not your thing. But you know that where to draw the borderlines on the globe has been a major issue causing many tragic wars. And now a powerful multi-billionaire leader seems to be seriously thinking of building a wall on the borderline. I sincerely hope this has nothing to do with greed of a leader at the sacrifice of weaker people.🙂

        Hmmm i get wat you mean..Mr Ashiaki. Its inevitable isn’t it. The breakout of another war?Its people who nominated him..its a tragic world people nowdays are hyped about outrageous behaviours characters fashion and looks. They hav stopped thinking…so when people are given power jus based on sheer random popularity one can do nothing but look at the person fool around and let out a sigh..

      • AshiAkira says:

        The world has its own course to move on . No one can change it. The problem is that there are so many people who think they can change it, all in their different ways causing unnecessary conflicts. We all can be happy only if we follow the world as it moves on its own course, not them. That’s how I lately think.🙂

      • missmonsoon says:

        It has always been that way Mr Ashiaki. The ones in power hav alys ruled. Whether they were great ones or pathethic ones their decisions had alwys impacted our lives. With power comes abuse..wonder how far will this go…

      • AshiAkira says:

        Yes, indeed.
        Can I download Wattpad onto my laptop? Is it easy enough for me to use?

      • missmonsoon says:

        i don’t know i have tried downloading it on laptop but on mine it wouldn’t work. if you have a smart phone. its very simple🙂 do you have a functional one?

      • AshiAkira says:

        You know that I’m not all that smart enough to use a smartphone.🙂 I feel I’m a way behind the crowd.🙂

      • missmonsoon says:

        Don’t worry i will send all those individually on your twitter inbox. and i am not either..I feel way back the crowd even my little brothers and sister use sophisticated phones. i don’t know how to even call from some latest ones🙂

      • AshiAkira says:

        You are modest.🙂

  3. This tiered image is something you do so well – taking us from the fixed, low, tangible fence/wall to the moving freedom in the middle level (birds fly) and finally to the infinite spaces above (vast sky) – I love it.
