 Mirages

   

   

      Mirages are optical illusions... At times decptive, like a mirage in the desert can be. Illusions....can  also be errors of the mind. The characters in these stories seem to shun the very perception of reality. As if looking for truths they really donít want to find...They seem  unreal...liars... to a certain extent they are... invented.. by themselves. Out of the fear they have of  facing one another and clarifying the dramas they keep hidden. In fact... isnít this perhaps manís precise drama in todayís world ?
