One day you will be free.




I know how men in exile feed on dreams.

Perhaps someday I can visit you, visiting Cuba. What a thought!

Hi Yoli,

I saw on your profile that you are a fencer - my son is a fencer as well, a foilist - and I founded a fencing academy here in the States 5 years ago. I'm very happy to find your lovely site and look forward to reading more posts!

Yoli said...

So happy you found me Amanda! Just came from your blog and you are one amazing lady. A woman after my own heart. My weapon is the épée.

Yoli said...

Raina I would love for those words to come true. I also expect you there Willow!

I just realized I have not visited for far too long. And, yes, freedom for Cuba! xoxo

So many ways for freedom to erode -
it seems we live in a world where
much freedom just slips away,
rather unnoticed .. .
until it's too late.

hello yoli, thank you for visiting my blog thus giving me the chance to find yours. it's an amazing place here. i've never seen so many charity-ads on a blog before, never! it says a lot about the person. i'm curious to find out more..
did i understand right - do you live in cuba??
politics, yes, but what i really LOVE about cuba is - its aesthetics (especially after seeing the well-known wim wenders' film;) - all these shabby beauties - buildings and cars..
i'll be back here,
ieva

Thank you for coming to my humble blog. No my dear there is no aesthetics at work. There is only neglect, poverty and people suffering under a regime that has never worked. For the turist it can be paradise, you have access to everything, for the natives, they stand behind a glass like children looking into a candy a store they will never be allowed to taste. Cuba was and still is, in its decay beautiful but there is a lot of pain behind that beauty. Families separated, people imprisoned for simply speaking their minds. The crimes against humanity that go unpunished there are too long and numerous for us to get into in a post. One day before I die, I hope to return.
