And thanks...

For reminding me I matter... in the face of such gigantic news, it's easy to lose oneself. Thanks to each and every person who called/e-mailed/IMed me, even if I wasn't receptive. You know why I was angry, and it wasn't at you.

For my coverage and personal involvement, I have received so many compliments today; compliments on my writing; on me as a person... they all mean so much.

Everyone is safe, so far. So many friends and relatives downtown... I hear they all made it out of the tower, at least, and are presumed safe.

So maybe, I can finally sleep.

No more prophetic dreams, I hope. Unless they involve candy and Nemos and dinner parties with #tmbg'ers like Brak and Zeit and Enna and Baka and Lorrrrrrrry Elllllie.

Those kind of dreams are... well... the stuff that dreams are made of.

What is real?

Sometimes I think that the Devil is more real than God is.

God is something we create with our thoughts, but Satan lives through our actions.

Got Brave New World & BNW Revisited, the Invisible Man by H.G. Wells, and Le Compte du Monte Crisco avec les trois Musketeers.

Gonna read the invisible man first, then the Dumbass books, then BNW and Stranger

Note to self: Track down those other two Walter Jon Williamson books in the Drake Maijistral trilogy. Don't think they'll be as good as Rock of Ages, but hey.

Do you like stories?

Something that the laughter of children and jish's journal entry about not being sure if he really wanted to live in New York made me think about today....

When I was six, I wanted to be an astronaut. More than anything. I was a sci-fi kid, born and raised (believe it or not, right?), and I wanted to go into space. As Keith said in my favorite childhood show's pilot: "We're space explorers and WE NEED SPACE." I always loved that quote.

Well, one day, a little six year old boy was watching TV, probably that very cartoon, when the news came on... the Space Shuttle challenger exploded. Well, shit. I still wanted to be an astronaut, though, for a few years. As I matured, the dream faded, but not because of fear from the disaster.

So, go me, and stuff.
