Photo: Slide Mantra, a monument in the Bayfront Park in Miami. Made by American sculptor Isamu Noguchi for the Venice Biennale in 1986. The marble sculpture was installed in Miami in 1991 and remained intact until 2005 when Hurricane Wilma damaged it. It has since been resorted.

All straight paths heading

unperturbed, ever boring

as life is a train

Miami has a free public transit system called the Metromover. Although a slow mode of transport, hundreds of locals take the Metromover across the city every day. Each car/coach can accommodate about 30 people and it has no seats. Almost all Metromovers I saw had only 2 cars, but there were a few single ones as well.

As boats tied to shore

away from reality

tied to dreams are thoughts
