Looking at my country of origin from the distance, now that it is on the news all the time for the first time here since forever. It feels a bit like watching a distant galaxy where some cosmic cataclysms are taking place, beyond the horizon of time and space and what can affect you directly or that you can have an influence on -but it's where I grew up, where I still have family and friends on both sides of the divide.

Hoping for the best, there seems to be a very slim chance of a resolution that doesn't involve a blood bath with fifth thousand dead on the streets and a pinochet for the ensuing twenty years. We'll see.
