The Significance of Significance

Sarah wasn’t quite two when the world learned what was what.
Which is rather like saying that Sarah still didn’t exist.
The very young don’t get to keep their memories. That’s normal human development in action, or it’s a nagging bug inside an otherwise lovely system. Either way, she didn’t waste time regretting this supposed loss. Sure, [...]

Two Ways of Living

I’ve eaten everything inside my kitchen, and that’s not enough. That’s barely a beginning. A brightly lit all-night restaurant stands across the street, promising broiled-this and boiled-that.

The Universal Museum of Sagacity

Walter Fitzgerald was a rising force in the insurance industry, living in faraway Boston when he met a lovely Bohemian girl named Madeline Furst. The one-week courtship led to a wedding officiated by an Episcopal priest, and the couple settled into an apartment near Beacon Hill. Maddy was my mother’s aunt, but only briefly. That [...]

The Algorithms of Value

Parchment woke comfortably hungry, a fine dream lingering while she lay inside the bed that knew her utterly.
This was the most unremarkable morning.
Happy eyes opened to find the expected room. Cockroaches scrambled across cracked plaster walls. Ancient cars roared and a neighbor’s hip hop shook the floor. But there was also a spring wind lifting [...]
