  • Hello…

    Hello…. Can you hear me?
    I know we’ve not spoken for a long time but I know you’re out there… someplace.

    I’ve been doing some thinking and…
    . … I have decided to stop believing in Darwin … science is always proving itself wrong.

    All my life I have been at sea with change - and I’m not certain how much of this “survival of the fittest” I can take.

    Last night you gave me a revelation in a dream.

    I was calling a cab, and every time I figured out how to dial my phone - it became something else...
    As much as I tried to will my subconscious to dream it was a phone,
    I found myself holding a toaster, a Barbie playhouse, a hand held game...
    the baby toy buttons were made of primary colored plastic...
    The thing had a drop down menu and a touch screen that played a karaoke tune...

    It was sometimes a piece of paper that said “EASY TO USE in seventeen languages..

    The dream told me that persistent intuitive problem solving has made me weary.

    Can you make it stop?

    I feel so much like an immigrant in a world I never left.
