Last winter in NYC editor and Fb friend Shaun Randol of The Mantle: A Journal of Progressive Critique invited me to an opening for an exhibit of Burmese artists. They were all savoring the winds of change, but warily. After all, the Burmese generals might yet lower the boom again. So glad to see the improvement in Burma has not receded. The normalization of conditions for human rights in Burma, after so many years of iron military rule, is amazing. So glad she is freed to be a political player in Burma, and to travel again. What an example of reconciliation she and her country may together provide. I wrote a blog piece about that exhibit, here for you to click on next, w/many images of the art that night.
