Daphne Buter’s Comments

All these stories are part of a novel. My novel. And my novel is a part of me. And I am a part of my family. And my family is part of mankind. And mankind exists on planet Earth. And planet Earth is a part of a solar system. And that solar system is a part of supernova Crab Nebula M1. And Crab Nebula M1 is a part of Horsehead Nebula Barnard 33. And Horsehead Nebula Barnard 33 travels through black matter. And black matter fills a universe in a bowl, loaded with galaxies and other lingering stuff. And above that bowl, a holy man with huge hands and a silvery beard is holding all that stuff together. With a diamond spoon He’s eating stars from the bowl. And His eyes are translucent, and He gives light, and his name is Francis Ford Coppola.
