– Arash Kiaser – Ann Arbor, MI –
I was born with many troubles in one of the decades of 20th century. Without any specific reason, from the beginning, I felt that I like Germany and this attitude still continues. When I was a child, while I was playing with mud I showed my love to geology. Buying some books about it was my first step in this way.
In those years that I felt maybe I could find my identity in Jurassic Fossils. Therefore, I was searching for causes of the death of dinosaurs. I continued my experiments on molluscs in the garden. Unfortunately my research was unfinished, because the mollusc generation was extinct in the garden. I entered the school with this hope that I could continue my unfinished research. But it didn’t take so long because of lack of scores in physics and mathematics lessons; I was not allowed to study science. This made me to say goodbye to all my investigations. After this event for some time I was depressed that the consequences were a failed suicide.
But my familiarity with Hitler’s ideas and also find my old colour pencils rescued me from depression.
Having Nazi ideas, some of my entourage were disappointed from me; besides, progresses in painting, made some of my friends happy. After a while, I noticed that I can’t be without songs of Big Bill Broonzy and Charley Patton. Therefore, I left Nazi ideas and I assigned them to the Nuremberg Trials. But my entourage didn’t believe my decision and they left me.
With the passage of time, I felt that I had no place in between these years. All these problems caused me to decide my life. And after 3 minutes of thinking, I chose to live in 1871 for the rest of my life. I would enjoy it if I could live in 19th century. Now, I am looking for a way to travel in time and I’m thankful if you can help me and I would appreciate your ideas about a time machine or anything like that.
