The morning rise

There is one small town in Europe I visit every year. Almost always I drive through the same shady streets. And every year I try to notice a little differences on the face of that old town. EUROPE is conservative, they don’t like to change things. They repair, remake or redo thing again if they are old. But If something is taken down most likely for a restoration.

Once I noticed that one of the iconic bakeries took their store symbol off the roof. The bakery was sold to a bigger chain and a new contemporary design was introduced to the neighbourhood.

Shortly after I witnessed that the store symbol was put back in its place. The new, shiny and fresh Baker (the roof symbol) offered a bread and suggests a little more to the citizens of the town.

I don’t know if it is on purpose or not, but this baker has a bread sticking out from his basket as he promoting a men’s health together with a freshly backed rolls. Hot bread, hot guys – I guess, now I understand, why people loved him. Back in place above everybody else’s heads he is like a Cupid reminding everyone about the early morning rise.

“He was a dictator but he never interfere human rights because he enjoyed it as well” – from peaceful street fighter

Riiiight….. Women rights?

Before you even start to read what’s written on his banner  look at this example of dedication.

On the first glimpse he is nothing more than a caricature or anecdote figure: a middle aged man walking on the streets of Melbourne promoting rights for women instead of going to work. Funny, don’t you think, almost if he wants his wife to work instead of him?

He has a red bucket as a symbol of hard women work at home as a result of discrimination which still exists in neighbouring countries and yet declaring more rights for women. More rights for women? Yes, they need to work, not just at home, but also bring real money, it is allowed now. So give them more! As my granny says: “You load that horse which can carry”. Women are resilient and hardworking, so give them rights, responsibilities and obligations and b.t.w. here is your red bucket too, darling.

But when you start to read the confusing text on his back you will understand that he is nothing more than a sincere and candid human being and he has a pure desire to make this world better. I think so… I hope so…

Cause in this regards we are just observing the moment of the transformation in men’s mind somewhere in “third world” countries. Rear moment. The only  thing is that it is happening here where everything has already happened.

Когда мужчина средних лет борется за права женщин, расхаживая по Мельбурну, невольно думается о карикатурности его образа. У него красное ведро в руках, как символ тяжёлой домашней работы угнетенных женщин(?).

Это всё равно, если бы он хотел сказать этим:” дайте права женщинам, пусть работают, если уж так, то пусть приносят в дом деньги, пока я борюсь за их права, и, кстати, вот, дорогая, твоё красное ведро. Но это после… после работы”.

Смешно? Сначала. Прочтя это закодированное письмо, понимаешь, что, собственно, он искренне борется за мир и права женщин, что он хочет мира и покоя своим дочерям и жене/ам. Это тот редкий случай, когда происходит трансформация в сознание мужчины страны третьего мира. Редкий случай. Жаль только, что он происходит здесь, где всё уже произошло…
