United States Summer 2011
America alienates me.
From touchdown in Atlanta it is obvious I am, so to speak, no longer in Kansas.
I am asked what I am doing here. Repeatedly, and not always in a nice way. I want to answer with the obvious, that I am queuing endlessly for the privilege of being cross examined by an unfriendly customs officer who wants to know all kind of private details my best friend doesn't even know, but I swallow it back and smile meekly, while trying to act like I am not nervous, frustrated and insulted.
Procedures, waiting lines, probing questions, stamps and signatures, and then, finally, the liberating "Enjoy the United States".
I never felt more alien.
Security checks,
passports, fingerprints, eye scans...
I just want my love.
******************************************************************************************
America amuses me.
This first meeting scratches only at the surface. I encounter all the clichés and smile inwardly: the food portions, the convenience stores, the SUVs.

UsUk-Just the Way You Are
England sat in his bedroom, wearing his round-rimmed reading glasses and reading a book in the dim light that stood next to him on the nightstand. He was lying in his bed with only his top covers wrapped around his legs. He was wearing a green T-shirt and pajama bottoms that matched. Next to the lamp was a small digital alarm clock that read 9:37 pm in shining florescent red. The room was peaceful and quiet, with the exception of the crickets chirping outside the window. It was another quiet and lonely night for England.
He turned to look at his clock, sighed and then closed his book. I should probably go to bed, he thought as he took off his reading glasses and placed them on top of the book that now lay next to the clock. He was about to turn off his lamp light when all of a sudden, he heard faint music coming from his window that froze his body right on the spot.
He turned to the window. The music turned out to be a choir in perfect melody with a piano playing in the backgrou

Deaths Diary (Entry 10)
Entry Ten
As I promised some time ago, I would like to discuss the atomic bombs dropped in August of 1945.
How do you picture Hell? Do you see fields and mountains of fire, with demons and horned creatures hoping around with pitchforks, stabbing people? Maybe you see what Dante's Inferno described: many layers of different forms of punishment. I once heard it described that Hell is a place of nothingness. Because all of our senses come from God, and Hell is completely separated from God, then all of our senses are removed. Unable to feel, see, hear, smell, or taste, you are left without anything.
While all of these versions of Hell are popular and very thought provoking…I believe that humanity came closest to recreating Hell on August 6th, 1945. You called this version of Hell "Little Boy." It was a weapon with power and destructive ability that I had never seen before. I must credit you humans there: Only creatures with creative minds and abilities such as yours could construct w
