  • ....for being a prisoner of language.

    Because the prison he inhabits has many windows. Each one offering us a different view.

    Some are bright. Others dark. Some have thought-provoking views. Others clear but distant vistas. Many make you smile. There are cobwebs hanging over some of these windows, framing old scenes, scenes that ancestors would have gazed on too. But there are new views also, fresh and vibrant.

    But all these windows, in their own way, being glass, offer that wonderful thing to us, Jari's reflection. We see him clearly in each one. And of necessity we must see ourselves too, reflected, out there, in his stories.

    And thats the freedom this prisoner graciously gives us.
