Tonight juggling, tomorrow the entire universe.

My world is slowly collapsing, or perhaps it truly is expanding, everything at the same speed away from everything else. Soon I’ll be lonely either way.

I’m not sure what this means. Actually, I don’t think it means anything at all. I’m not really lonely.

I think I’m in a creative mood. I want to be writing science fiction. My thoughts have been turning to it more frequently lately. When this used to happen, I would actually write some. Now, I just think about writing it, or pick up whatever sci-fi book I’m reading and spend an hour or two. I can’t write it without reading it!

And I hardly ever get to read anymore. I did finish Robota. (Which is a book too, written by Orson Scott Card, despite the lack of evidence on the website. I guess it was Dough Chiang’s brainchild, and Card just wrote the text. If you google the title, you’ll find the movie trailer too, which looks pretty sweet.) And I’m working on a book now called The Ear, the Eye, and the Arm, by Nancy Farmer. I think it’s suppose to be a kids book, but it’s a kids book the same way A Wrinkle in Time is a kid’s book. I think KR loaned it to me.

    hey, you know what? i just reread A Wrinkle in Time a few months ago, and it wasn’t as good as I remembered it. And the religious undertones seemed much more obvious to me this time around.

    Discuss.

    yeah, I’ve never been a huge fan. I read it late enough that I didn’t appreciate it–exactly for that reason. In fact, I don’t even think I’ve ever made it all the way through the second book.

    This reminds me that I need to read those Lemony Snicket books and get them back to you!

    Anyway, my comparison was more of a stylistic one than it was content related. IE, the writing was light enough that kids could enjoy the story, but there seem to be undertones and themes that will probably go well over most of their heads.
