The hole in the pocket,
the rip in the sleeve
All of the reasons
we seek to believe
That something must come
of the loss and the pain
Faith may be madness
but doubt is insane

July 10,1996

.....Wired is wired. Where my laptop goes, the Archive follows.And where the Archive goes, you're welcome to come. Been part of your lives so long,it's only turnabout you become part of mine.
....."Place" is real. England isn't an extension of the U.S.or anything like it. But in changing "place" I realize how real cyberspace is. Connected in the same old way without missing a beat. The mailbag and the journal effect this.
.....I've found a few kindred minds, and a lot of sympatico ones, while doing the Archive. Most hope against hope the Dead won't let them down, want to believe it's not a scam, hope the values endure -- and give us the benefit of the doubt. Truth will out. Stay tuned.
.....No profit to be made on the internet, quiet as it's kept. Thousands of readers? Ha! Hundreds of us here at best, and a migrant population of random surfers. This is for love. There's important stuff to hash out. Maybe your voice makes a difference, maybe it doesn't. But if it does, it's here, in the mailbag.
.....A lot of people think the internet is lunacy, but I've found sanity here. A hunger for communication and the ability to initiate it. Reaching out into the unknown and making it more like a home.
