Long Overdue1. When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right; when he states that something is impossible, he is probably wrong.
2. The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.
3. Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
Arthur C Clarke, 'Profiles of the Future'.
"Ladies... nggggh... Ladies and... Gentleman..."
Sweat stood out on her forehead as she spoke. Bella looked pained, winces and twinges flickering across her impeccably made up countenance as she struggled to speak, the microphone catching every moan and laboured breath as she stumbled through her speech.

that I contemplate climbing into their smiling jaws
thinking that it might be better to be split in two than left hanging.
But always, I draw my red hood and flit back into the forest
running in the shadows of pathways, never stepping into clearings
because I’ve spent my whole life in the wilderness
and I still can’t tell the wolves from the woodsmen.
