Welcome to JP Melville's review, experience, and statement on foreign aid and the international development industry. A conservative faith in family. A love affair riding the riotous tensions between money, personal freedom, the majestic travesty of our specie's ecological footprint, and economic politics. Selected writing of both prose and poetry, anecdotal travel log to rhetorical essay, dating back from the 1980's to the present. Enjoy!

1990 Observations - Sakorn Nakorn, Thailand

On the first attempt to reach the farm the researcher crashed the motorized rickshaw.  Only one passenger was slightly bruised.  Two women escaped injury by leaping from the vehicle.
Making the last way on foot, the researcher found the goats crowded into an unimaginably small space.  Conditions were unconscionable.
Yet, something had to be done.
The dog had a bad case of fleas and was thoroughly washed.
No return was ever made.
