Holidays, Projects, Rockets

I’m listening to Billie Holiday.

She has an astounding story   beside her music.

As much as her music is worthy of your attention, I have another point to make:

I would never have heard her voice, were it not for modern recording technology.

It is hard, now, to imagine hearing a singer and feeling that when they are gone, their sound(s) will be gone.

This is not (just) to marvel at what we have achieved, but to raise the question:

What future wonders might make our current reality seem brutish and untenable?

What shall we work on?

What matters?

Build a rocket, boys.
