A rant

A frenetic pace of thoughts

and memories


The increasing isolation

Samuel Beckett gave us Not I, Asimov gave us I Robot, and now, from the neo colonial world center of silicon nanobots of San Francisco, California, Pilar offers us BOT I.

Autobiographical and contemporary, this Spanglish interpretation of the delusions and illusions of the technocultural era delivers us Out, Into This World….
