Lure of the Trade Winds
“I have come to an unalterable decision—to go and live forever in Polynesia. Then I can end my days in peace and freedom, without thoughts of tomorrow and this eternal struggle against idiots.”

Kafka and I
In “The Metamorphosis,” Franz Kafka shocked readers with a grotesque fable about a man who wakes up one morning to discover he has been transformed into an insect, which dovetails with the Buddhist world view of rebirth, or transmigration of the soul. Is this possible? When asked about reincarnation, the French wit and philosopher, Voltaire, replied that it is just as remarkable to have been born once, as to have been born twice. Nightmarish at first glance, Kafka’s born again parable is about waking up, to become self-aware and see yourself as you are without illusion and the dulling veneer of ingrained social conditioning imposed by the establishment.
