Bleary-eyed in Brazil
Am in Porto Alegre, 6 am, waiting for a flight to Paraguay. The federal security workers and immigration officers are on strike, so all flights are delayed for hours. Few people to check bags, to check passports, …..lines, lines, lines. I’m reading “Breathing Space” by Heidi Neumark, [http://www.beacon.org/catalogs/f03/neumark.html] so these delays are a blessing, giving me the opportunity to enjoy and be inspired by this wonderful soul chronicle of destitution and transfiguration in the south bronx, ny.
