Was It Worth It: Columbus in Jeans
The arrival of the 1980s saw millions living behind the Iron Curtain flee their homeland in search of a better tomorrow. Step-by-step, they trudged persistently to reach their dream of happiness. These were the Columbuses of the 1980s – risk takers who had the courage to test themselves and explore the notoriety of the western world first-hand.
Was It Worth It is a modern odyssey spanning three continents and following one family’s path to a new, unfamiliar future. It tells of the characters’ struggle to adapt to foreign places, languages and customs. With settings in Lima, Paris, Ottawa, and exploring venues in other countries, the book offers readers an insight into what it takes to start from scratch in an unknown land.

Who is it this time?
could have been here for Petes sake
Hands off everything
Skimpy but on ones own
Each to the best of their ability
Elektra means Canada
dont speak French
And now well what?
You have to really want it
The whole world has changed
As long as my eyes are closed
Something just took root
We do not know and will not know
Heres the answer
Home is where
Can one fall in love with such an expanse of land?
The first buggy plums
It was not written in our stars
In this honest country
And the aroma of the wide world has spread around us
Maybe its only a myth?
A nest of snakes
Well be waiting for you
The medals are in the shoebox
For better or for worse
It all went to Hell
Thank you Lord
