Written by Brendan U.

Continued from page 1

This isrepparttar modern geek. They enjoy sports but only on their HI-Definition TV. They dominate in their basketball league but only after selectingrepparttar 136525 perfect sneakers to maximizerepparttar 136526 effectiveness of their go-to move. They arerepparttar 136527 teenagers who setuprepparttar 136528 parental controls for their mom and dad. They have parties to celebrate turning 5 years old and for gifts, ask for computer products by name.

The modern geek is everywhere and with each new generation andrepparttar 136529 progression of science and technology, they are growing to berepparttar 136530 majority and will someday be commonplace.

As for me, I still keep a pair of tapped up glasses on my mantel for old time's sake.

I am their conscience they don’t wish to be reminded of their deeds of how they made wives widows and children orphans. These I try to look out for when I watchrepparttar city late at night whenrepparttar 136524 people sleep; invisible, I merge withrepparttar 136525 shades never seen, never heard. But then I have to retire torepparttar 136526 fields once more to be withrepparttar 136527 elements where my adopted name Raven, was sung and is still being sung by creation.

I amrepparttar 136528 messenger and I will prick their conscience breathing my message songs intorepparttar 136529 air to be carried byrepparttar 136530 wind to them in their beds that they may wake to look for me and they will not find me. But instead will find signposts and directions to where my covers lie. For I have undertaken a journey, a pilgrimage to that jagged hill to exert my soul, re-channel my thoughts. And when I do come down from that summitrepparttar 136531 world will be bright, again.
