Faces of Universal Tragedies 7 from Guido Vermeulen

Guido's original envelope arrived in one of those we're sorry envelopes.  It was not damaged, I guess some cautious postal clerk wanted to make sure this parcel made it in its totality - I guess the ink made the envelope feel a bit delicate. 

 A card 'ON FIRE" based on reflections by Gaston Bachelard (France) from R Budha Thoki (Nepal) and Guido Vermeulen (Belgium).  On the back of Guido's book 7 I find this 'Rant' (his word not mine) from Guido:

Universal tragedies: Official His-storyis written b the conquerors and victors; not by the defeated ones of victims.  Worse even: the victims become the bad guys; they are equal to the tormentors or the reason for all the drudgery; they are the real villains to justify genocide.

I have selected a few of the wonderful faces from Guido's book 7.

There are more questions than answers, always. 

L'ouverture n'est pas toujours si simple que cela!
