The Transmission Has Been Made

Today’s posting is not something I wrote but a letter I recently received from my friend Paul. It details an intriguing story to use Paul’s term, I would call it an anecdote - for reasons I outline elsewhere. I hope you find it as interesting as I did. I look forward to the graphic novel (as well as the sound track or the full opera).

Dear Danny,
I hope this letter finds you well. I haven’t written for some time, but a recent memorable experience has led me to send you this account, which I thought you might find interesting, especially given your connection to Silo’s story “Day of the Winged Lion.” I have some trepidation about even trying to describe this experience, which is so far from everyday life, and in its most important aspects really not describable. So I hope you will bear with me in this effort, and enjoy what, if anything, you are able to make of it.
First I want to clear up a possible misunderstanding that may arise. When showing this account to a few friends I found that they often took it to be a work of fiction. But I want to assure you that this is not the case, and this is simply an attempt to describe events, however inexplicable, that actually took place.

Take a look at the rest of Paul’s letter...
