I won't go into too many details in a public forum, but over the years a lot of different people have moved through my mother's house, where I am right now, northern Bronx. To make a big story short, a musician once experienced something in this very room that could only be attributable to my father's ghost. I don't believe in such things, but I also cannot deny her firsthand experience and what only I could have identified it as.
Now, in the very same spot she experienced this, there is a mysterious 5.5 Mbps "very good" WiFi signal. I've scanned the entire house and cannot determine its source, nor can I find the signal except within the 10 foot radius of where my father died. This story offers no metaphor or tight resolution, but it's true, and that's already asking a lot. Ether comes in all forms, all I'm saying, and a lot of the world was wireless before the internet was.Posted by kevin slavin at March 16, 2004 12:21 AM
