Prisoners of Life

This is the 2nd in the series of Fluck Tuesdays. This photo is part of Oliver Fluck’s Prison Chess Series.

Sincere gratitude for the collaboration which resulted in eight very unique fiction pieces. These were the initial stories. Then I continued to create 23 more and that is how  Collection of Auguries came to be. Grateful for the synchronicity which brought us together so these stories could be told with the help of a lens.

You can read the entire story in Collection of Auguries.

  1. Anatol Rapoport ~ tit-for-tat/ prisoner’s dilemma; the safest evolutionary survival strategy. I read about it many moons ago in Richard Dawkin’s The Selfish Gene….but that’s another story.

    I am with the character on the economic back-story. If a fraction of the money spent on the prison system was pumped into deprived areas, there’d be much less crime and far fewer criminals…but crime does pay, for those who build prisons at least.

    A great insight. I’m enjoying Fluck Tuesdays!

  2. “Man is born free, but everywhere he is in chains.” Jean Jacques Rousseau…we all have more in common with each other (inside or out) than we (dare) realise!

    And that’s the last comment, I promise 😉

  3. Absolutely insightful piece. I did laugh at the “three strikes and you are in.”

    And here is something else to add to the path that you and I walk on. Until several months ago, my sister worked at Court T.V. as an editor.
