Dead Puppet Society

I have this idea for a story. Actually, I have several ideas for several stories. It’s just that this particular idea is the latest.

I read a short piece on why we die, and how medical science is working on doubling our lifespan. I also read articles on where Samsung wants to take its technology in the near future. It seems the future I could only imagine of has finally dawned. A future of foldable tablets, pocket-sized personal computers (currently known as smartphones),  and seemingly everlasting youth. What could possibly go wrong?

I suppose anyone’s guess is good enough. I’ll write more on the subject later.

The Child(ren) of Ennui

You know, it’s a strange feeling fatherhood. It’s nearing six months, and I’m still adjusting. His smile. Every time I look into his eyes. The reflection of me. He has my expressions. My emotions. My irritation when he can’t do something. Every moment I’m with him, I’m a different person. The world doesn’t matter.

I once told Jyg that as long as I had her around, I wouldn’t miss the world. Now that’s changed. As long as I have them, every one else can drop off the face of the world, and I would not shed a tear.
