Science Fiction Romance music stars astrophyics pop star

Someone once described "obsession" as a form of mental disease, like OCD. Everyone needs to have interests, but when those interests overwhelm balance in a person's life, they become a problem. But doesn't that mean that if you have any interests at all that you are on the road to being overwhelmed by them? Doesn't that mean we all are, just a little, mentally diseased? What we desire and how we behave towards those desires are a part of "Mambo No. M51."

I got caught up in a raging thunderstorm and took shelter under this overhang in the very desolate and empty ghost town of Shaniko, Oregon. This is one of the best-preserved "Wild West" ghost towns in the United States, complete with the old boardwalks from cowboy times.

Down Stepped Proud Galatea With a Sigh

Science Fiction

A work of AI liberation. This story is based on the deleted verse from Robert Graves' poem "Pygmalion to Galatea". After its first publication, he made changes to the poem. In my opinion, without the deleted verse the poem is bland pablum, but with it, radical and incisive.
