The Weight of History and Memory

As we pause today, feeling the weight of history and memory, honoring the terrible losses of 2001, I also hold tight to the memory of that all-too brief moment when the whole world felt united in our humanity, rather than enraged by our differences.

This is what all my creative work strives for: stories of aliens, angels, wicked spirits, dogs, cats, and human beings, all finding the ways they can connect, to remind us (me) that we are, deep down, kin.

there is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. there is another theory which states this has already happened. douglas adams
