I've been a freelance writer for a couple decades. My best editor and harshest critic is my long-term partner, Laura.
Our children were young when we were introduced to a kitten. A friend, a truck driver, had driven from a few states away before realizing that an orange tabby had somehow snuck into his trailer. When he saw us interact, he said through a teared eye, “This is what he needs. A family.”
Nobody can hear a scream in the vacuum of space, or so they say. Now, I’m no scholar. Just a working bum. But wouldn't this be a hard thing to prove using the scientific method? I mean, I’m sure you can prove it mathematically, even logically, but who in hell would volunteer to test it? Wouldn’t that require someone to actually go out there and scream? More, wouldn’t it require an observer, a listener, to do the same?
