Foreign Intelligence Agencies, Capabilities, and Croatia

The revelations last year by Edward Snowden – and the brave reporting by Glenn Greenwald and his colleagues at The Intercept, as well as in quality independent blogs such as Washingtonsblog.com – shine a bright light on just how massive, invasive, many times in most countries, blatantly unconstitutional, and illegal surveillance has become in the world today with borderline psychotic government obsessions to control internet discourse on politics and geopolitics.

A flower Out of a misty dream

I happen to know a unique flower,
one that exists nowhere here,
except Out of a misty dream,

then closes, within a dream
One who dares not to touch the thorn
must never want a rose,
a rose looks fair,
yet fairer is its fragrance and its radiance

‘Feeling at peace, however fragile
it learned to breathe fresh air,
even when sheltered behind the screen,

i think it already knows
beauty and sorrow are linked together,
in the high times and low however,
it can bring me a smile.

Angel Award


My very dear PetiteMagique has nominated me for the Angel Award again. She calls her self a “black-winged” Angel, and that may be, but her soul and heart are purely white and shining to me.   No offense, Patti.  Personally, I think I’m a bit of both, one white wing, one black wing.  Idealist Rebel, remember?
