New Year’s Resolution Scorecard — Week 09

I normally do most of the work for the blog on the weekends.

This last weekend was not a normal weekend.

Three events, two dinners, two meetings and a birthday party, plus working on editing a series of recordings for a client. Not much room for anything else. I was able to put together the weekly blog post on Friday because it was a book I just re-read. About the only other thing I was able to do was renew “Incognito” at the library because I wasn’t finished reading it. So annoying but that’s life.

Changes: I have a number of websites and pages open in my browser for eventual posting in the blog. I have decided to change that and mention them in my Twitter feed with the hashtag “#HypKnow” from now on. That saves me having to write something witty about the page while still drawing people’s attention to it.

Scissors Cut Paper Wrap Stone” by Ian McDonald

[amtap book:isbn=0553561162]

As a brilliant graphic arts student, Ethan Ring stumbled on a secret so awesome that its existence could not remain hidden. The computer-generated images he helped create contained infinite powers: the power to heal, erase memories, bring ecstasy. kill savagely. Locked into a devil’s bargain with the monolithic European government, Ethan now sees his one change to escape the dark forces of destruction that have enslaved his soul. He will brave the treacherous terrain, the lawless bands of akira, and the power-armored security forces to undertake a thousand-mile pilgrimage. But the danger Ethan fears most comes from within. It is the seductive lure of his own gift, a power whose cost may be his own damnation.

Primal mandalas, pried loose from the deepest parts of the brain, capable of affecting anyone who sees them. One causes religious ecstasy. One engenders healing. One causes mental blind spots and another mental blankness. One erases memories.

One causes obedience in whoever sees it.

And one kills.
