A Miniature Life
We dream a great deal; the tranquility of the night is probably the best time to enjoy life. What comes later is often concocted in the mind, which is at full steam 24/7. The study of dreams is complex; Freud had his ideas, and Jung made it more complicated. Can we dream pretty much anything with uncanny details? This work highlights moods, emotions, flashbacks, and dreams within dreams, which could lead to paranoia. In this story the author portrays himself as a traveler from the old continent into North America, in the state of Georgia. Here he makes friends, ends up in a ritzy restaurant at the mall, where fills in as a host, from time to time, and he dates the owner, an elegant divorcee in a hurry to be loved again. During his sojourn he also meets a young woman from China, who can't talk. The chic divorcee is not happy and things get complicated. The Chinese woman needs help because her brother apparently fled to China, and the restaurateur is out of control because she feels ignored. At this point the traveler is in the middle of a nightmare and drowning in paranoia. A Miniature Life is a beautiful journey of suspense, tragic, profound, and sometimes humorous.
