Nothing But Time Memoirs
The L.O.M (Land of Miracles) &Women of The L.O.M. is Otradom PeloGo's, after traveling from the US to the Middle East and Europe, explanation of a people trying to work together (globalize) from the neighborhood where he grew up in rural Texas, to the complex affair of trying to piece together the different phases, while driving through the streets of postwar Iraq, to the epitome of globalization and foreign trade in one of it's neighboring countries in a city called Dubai in the U.A.E. But war and capitalism in the Middle East and Europe is only made discernable after meeting, like back in America, the people that make up its' backbone of families, the builders of roads and skyscrapers; and now by those who has become a part of his life.
With a combination of poetry and short stories branching out from the foundation of the book called (I Come From The Land of Miracles), he explains the plight of homelessness of children specifically (section titled Children and AMCS) and families in what he terms as A Most Complex Situation (AMCS) and the auspices of trying to overcome it, to the plight of a group of young women who has migrated from Europe to the Middle East (and visa versa) as well as other parts of the world in the section titled Women of The L.O.M., while using his own life, his family and the world that he now lives in back in America to make prudent and empathetic comparisons.
From Holland to Germany and to France, juxtaposed to the diverse Middle East, and his own country, he tries to add methodology to these different parts of globalization where some are viewed as protectionist societies trying to choose between limited globalization, (only when it's necessary) and those who are viewed as trying to bring it about more quickly.

I'm engaged in the book purely because I see an opportunity to share this with other young people trying to make a change in their lives. This book portrays the consequences of two boys caught up in the game, the hustle of the projects and trying to impress first their peers caught up in that hustle and then, sharing their circumstances, in hopes of saving others from the circumstances of unforgiving choices. I grieve for the people that suffered from their poor and unthoughtful decisions but I believe that Nothing But Time Memoirs can change the direction of someone looking to change their life.
