dream dreams

March 31, 2020

Plenty of room to grow in: A Baluchistan lad, bundled up against winter’s numbing grip, proudly displays his two-wheeled steed. With the prospect of at least a high-school education comes a new wealth of opportunities. Tonight he can dream dreams as vast and vital as all Iran, and, waking, may find those dreams coming true.

This photo appears on page 47 of the January 1975 issue of National Geographic with that caption and all its commas and entitled white guy condescending mumbo jumbo appearing on page 46. I took a picture of it. Now Iím ready to cut it out and frame it and hang it on the wall somewhere here at HQ because this lad knows whatís up. He knew it in 1975. He knows it now. Two-wheeled steeds are where itís at.
