Dondo and Cell Microtower

We talk within contexts, in groups, in culture, varying with the situation or occasion.  I’m trying to collapse the different levels, and unite modernity with tribal spirit.  At the most basic level, we pass messages as animals.  We smile or show other facial reactions within each other’s sight.  It’s more elementary than language.

From Here to There

We exist within our bodies.  Our bodies allow us a means of expression and communication.  We are not, however, our bodies. Continue reading

Destination Unknown

I apologize for not getting back to you folks out in this sea of ether we share here.  I’ve been pulling extra shifts to make up for wages lost while I was looking for work.  I haven’t been performing a lot of x-ray exams during the day, but when I go to swing shift at the dementia care afterward, everything and everyone requires examination.

To be honest, I always intended to write about this at some point.  Since one of my dear readers asked directly, that’s an indicator that it’s time to do so.

I Petted a Whale

The history of humanity’s mistreatment of our co-inhabitants on Earth is an epic tale of woe.  Today I want to offer a more redemptive one.  It didn’t right past wrongs.  It wasn’t of great scientific importance.  It is, however, a true story.  I was there. Continue reading
