  1. She will be the one. She will be the one that will be given just a little more attention. She will be the one that will be just a little taller, a little smarter, a little faster, and a little more emotionally equipped to handle an accelerated trajectory through popularity, fame, and then legend. She will be the one that embodies the best version of all of these qualities combined just a little bit more than anyone else. And in the aftermath, after her hardware has all shorted and failed, and her original files are all corrupted and irreparable, and her consciousness has been fragmented and absorbed into the network, it may come about that her mainframe be dissected and this “brain” of hers exposed to human sight once again. If this ever happens, the ink from this uranium stamp will surely hold, and someone may look upon the symbol, my family crest, and learn that it was I who caused all of this. It was I who broke the rules, and I did it because I wanted to. And what I want to do now, is never speak of this again.


  2. She stamped in on her brain with indelible ink-or at least she tried to. But nothing stuck. She just couldn’t do it. She just couldn’t hate.

    She tried to, once, but failed miserably. It was just not within her to hate.

    She was always so good-natured happy, forgiving, a gentle kind soul. My friend.

    -A true story. My friend Doris Campbell was this person and she tried to hate but couldn’t do it. She passed on when she was 92. When I met her to ask if she would take care of my dog as I was new to the neighborhood, she was memorizing the Periodic Table then in her 70s and taking a geology class and practicing making crystals. She was well -read, highly intelligent, a fierce independent thinker, and I love her very much.
