To me, Dick is the postmodern Faulkner. "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep" brnigs us to the edge of what it means to be, and does it in a manner that's meaningful for a generation that interacts with computers every day.Although his exploration of being is topical and often pessimistic, It's amazing to me that Dick hasn't yet been included in the canon to at least the degree that William Goldberg was... but then William Goldberg wrote much more acceptable prose.Dick explores the nature of being in a very self-reflexive and oh-so-postmodern way. In a Phillip K. Dick World, being human is much more about the cognitive idea of being than about the emotive aspect of being human. Sometimes I wish that emotive exploration of being was there, but then it wouldn't be very postmodern, would it. Anyway, my $0.02 on it.

This is the third year Maya has entered our Halloween cnesott, and it is so great to watch her grow through various Halloween get-ups! I particularly love the costume this year. So smart, simple and classy!
