Favorite Quote:
"As the tide washed in, the Dutch Tulip Man faced the Ocean:
'Conjoiner rejoinder poisoner concealer revelator. Look at it, rising up and rising down, taking everything with it.'

'What’s that?' Anna asked.

'Water,' the Dutchman said. 'Well, and time.'"
-Peter Van Houten, An Imperial Affliction


Somewhere you are looking up.
Nights sky starry banners spread above you
Infinity within your grasp.

When you walk you trip lightly over
the dancing planets.

Spin,
Spin,
Planets lost in each other’s gravity.
People lost in each other’s gravity.

We just spin,

Spin.

Our atoms, disgusted by everything else, never really touch.

Our electrons just push and push
Against each other.

Too close! They cry,
And strain away.
