Patient 29 at Ground Zero

She possessed an X-ray gaze and spoke in a nonsense tongue that made people very angry.  They hated how she looked at them; it was unsettling.  On the inside, she was already an abomination, so they admitted her.

Patient 29 now lived in a white box.  She was slowly recovering from a laryngectomy.  Her eyes had been scooped out of her head, and they severed her spine so that she would not injure herself.  Feeding tubes and catheters kept her healthy.

Once a day, a priest would come and give her religion.  They said it would rehabilitate her soul.

Spunky little ball of restless energy that gets into all sorts of trouble. Virtually, I'm a ninja. Physically, I'm a PhD student in Teaching and Curriculum at the Warner School of Graduate Education, University of Rochester. My research interest is in online education. I also have my certification in program evaluation, and do consultant work in the developmental evaluation of various STEM education programs as well as curriculum design. My blogs: http://virtuosity1111.wordpress.com/ At the very edge of physical space, there is a gap before you jump into the virtual. I'm always in that gap space, reaching out toward what I wish to be, how I can be it, and how I can think outside the box. Here, I write about online education, living an online life, and surviving graduate school I sprinkle in generous dose of poetry and prose, just to make things interesting. Virtuosity is shared with my best friend Natalya, and together, we use this blog to talk about pixel life, and/or anything else we find would be fun and fascinating to share. Thank you for dropping by! Yen aka. Blue Myanamotu
