Move along.

Move along.

Move along.

The stone faces under the peaked caps blue as the night mask something, and the cold silver stars over their hearts shows nothing underneath, only reflect that which lies in front.

What is behind the mask?

The yellow tape bears on its face whispers of some horror lurking in the fog.

What is behind the words?

What is within the house with all of its lights on? The crimson wine that flows under the skin has leaked out through a window, a hole in the darkness.

I do not wish to learn. To learn would shatter the mirror.

But the red pool of life displaced screams a commandment. I must.

The wall of stone faces stands in my way.

But the smallest crack in any stone will let shadows through.

I am beyond the stone. It is time to shatter the mirror.

Stories are made to be eternal but I could be wrong
Oh it's so easy to forget
And it ends once the adventure is over
Only the stories to remember

I must take responsibility for what I have started, even if I have lost most of my leads.

I found the power line that was marked with the shoelace earlier. There was something of a suspicious atmosphere about the place. I shall keep watch and record my findings.

Discoveries made. A body was identified, recorded by SHEP prison records as the researcher in charge of Project Prometheus.

Managed to evade the police and collect a sample.

I compared it to one of the ones taken from the Notebook.

Negative.

Mr. N escaped.

That's not all. I'm certain Mr. N was working on something much bigger than Project Prometheus.

His notebook describes many minor projects he was working on- individual projects as described by the notebook, but I've found a pattern.

All of Mr. N's projects are

Day Three

A man in a fedora stopped beneath the power line, looked up at the shoelace, frowned, paced back and forth a few times, and then left. There has been no sign of him since.

At the supermarket, a woman in her fifties said, to no one in particular, "Happenstance is a bitch."

A short time later, a kid in a skull T-shirt stood in the same place and clucked like a chicken. No one paid it any mind.

I am unsure as to the relation and causality of these events in an economic and political context.
will continue observation

The man in the fedora probably has no significance.

The woman may or may not be involved with them.

The child who clucked is extremely suspicious, and possibly quite dangerous.

While you were at the supermarket, did you see tier of bananas containing exactly three of the fruits?

Everyone's always leaving, then. Except for me - always there, always watching.

Everyone always returns, though. New faces on old bodies that can't quite remember.

Not quite, but a little twitch deep inside goes on and, off like a broken light.

I just smile and take the paperwork, open the doors, bring the meds.

"You look familiar."

Really?
How interesting.
Must just be one of those faces, huh?

Stone. Unmoving. It expresses only its own stability and solidity, and its illusion of permanence.

But time, like the water, wears away the stone mask. The sculpted features fade, and the stone becomes round, smooth.

This stone is soft underneath its mask.

But another mask conceals a heart of sharp flint, jagged and cruel.

The water does not wear this flint away. Pebbles carried in the current are dashed along the flint, but only leave new edges, new blades ready to lacerate.

The blades sharpen and sharpen- but the flint dwindles as it brandishes its new weapons.

Eventually the flint, too, will cease to be.

Its shards are too shrunken to hold an edge. They are swept along by the river, off to crush other great flint stones.

Day Seven

* "Is that the yocaher?" - college student riding in friends car, in the style of a catcall.
rolled window back up and drove away after I'd just barely had time to say, "what."

* "It's different - not better, and not worse," - man with a scruffy moustache sitting in a vinyl chair

* {blank stare} - student in CIS lab, looking up as I walked in

* {purrrrr} - cat with claws and fangs bared, rolling beneath the marked powerline

We cats are, in general, a rather untrustworthy lot.

Remain cautious. Avoid potato chips. And above all, do NOT speak to the man who jogs past every morning.
