This work -- written simultaneously on ARTS WIRE and on The WELL -- was begun while I lay in bed in Tempe, Arizona recovering from a serious accident.I could not go out, and sometimes days went by when there was no human contact.

The collaboration (hoped for but not asked for) was spontaneous.

While (restlessly fictionizing on a laptop generously lent to me by Xerox PARC), I wrote out the pain, other writers added words about the details of their lives -- providing windows on the world for "scibe".
