night was very black and in the distance the headlights were very faint
indeed. The sensor noted the light, measured its length and performed a
hundred different calculations on them and their source and after a
short time it was satisfied that there was no danger to the things in
its care and returned to close quarter's surveillance mode.
the distance the lights grew larger and came to a stop on the road near
the sensor. A pair of feet emerged from the driver's side of the car
and the stranger got out. He was a tall, broad shouldered man and quite
handsome in all appearance. Yet a close look at his features would
reveal that this entity was slightly irritated.
a gruff and restrained voice he said, "Discontinue physical mode" and
walked off in the direction of the sensor. Behind him there was a faint
buzz and the space where the car stood was now empty. If a time monitor
were available and pointed at that particular spot, one would have seen
the jet-black car shimmer, turn slightly silver and fade.
man stopped and looked around. The car was gone and he surveyed his
location. The moon was just showing up in the distance and with his
enhanced vision he could clearly see for miles and miles around him. He
was in a valley of sorts and the trees were thick near the center of
the valley. He checked the main highway about five miles away and all
quiet and he continued his walk towards the center of the trees. He was
about fifty miles from Belize, halfway to the next town called Stann
Creek. All was quiet as it always was in Belize, British Honduras,
Central America, before the rainy-season. He had just returned from one
of his monitoring stations in the rain forest.

paused. He scanned the area for about three miles around and noting
that nothing stirred and that the sensors were quiet, he uttered "Open"

wide, seemed to dissolve before his eyes."

it disappearing? And, why was the curvaceous babe with loads of money

but could he really count on her?

glasses were steamed up, his vision blurred, he was tired and irritable
and on top of all that he could not get away from the lab. That cursed
deadline imposed on him by the Administration was not helping either -
they wanted results yesterday!
Theodore R - did not like his name so he had changed it to "Theo". He
did this deliberately, despite the fact that his parents and later his
tutors had repeatedly told him that a name like "Theo" was not a proper
name for such a gifted young man. In response and in further revolt,
whenever he got the chance, he would spread his name in its shortened
form across some of his most formal and studious papers.
from a dislike of his name, Theo was one of those gifted individuals
who disowned any and all responsibilities if he could avoid them; he
considered this his right. Way deep down, when it came to the crunch -
he was quite a responsible person.
talent and genius for the Sciences had earned him more diplomas
certificates and awards than he knew what to do with - all of which
interested him little or not at all. He tended to keep a token few of
them on the mantle in his living room to please his folks and retired
them to the closet when new ones came along to replace them.

scientific equations and jargon, had always been with him. The more he
used his ability the better and better he got at it.
school his talent or skill (if you want to call it that) made him some
enemies and won him few friends. The popular athletic-type boys did not
appreciate the fact that he could spend all his time at parties with
the girls while they studied very hard. They resented further the fact
that it would simply take him a few hours to scan some books, finish
first in exams - and then walk away with honors!
were some things he liked about school though. Like the time he was
invited by the Dean, in his last year of college, to spend the summer
with the Dean's family at their retreat in the mountains. The Dean's
daughter, Polly-Ann, sure liked him...."A

personal Anti Grav Unit was acting up again for the third time this
month and he was not pleased. Just back from searching the Rocklands
for evidence of reported Silica migration, it had been necessary for
him to repair his AGP unit twice due to dust in its most sensitive
parts. It was time to trade it in for a newer model.
Anderson, six feet three inches tall with a rugged but handsome face
and a lean muscular body with an adventurous and prankish attitude
toward life, was considered "The" Silica expert on 23rd century Earth.
It had started off as a hobby in his school years and his insatiable
curiosity lead him into the most extensive study of the formation,
structure and later the function of sand and rocks, ever done.

was fairly well off. His lifestyle could be considered modest by some,
but he was more concerned with how much fun he was having. When he was
not out exploring some far off region of the planet, he enjoyed his
quiet life in his subterranean complex with his computer and its
sophisticated interplanetary links.
a matter of fact he was not really interested in repairing his AGP
Unit, at this particular moment, at all. He was actually thinking of
the communications and mail that was waiting for him in his computer
database. There was a lot to catch up on.
a casual shrug, he stored the unit in his utility closet and headed for
the lounge. 'I'll get to you later' he thought as he descended the
stairs to his den. The closer he got to his computer the more excited
he became. He was eager to find out what was happening on the various
planets he was in communication with. At last count he was accessing
some two hundred news bases and was inter-linked with seventy-three
planets in this sector of the galaxy.

There are some beings in
Who defy the normally
They love to converse
And are not easily
deterred from their objectives
Their sights are mountain
Which they consider low
Their normal 'look"
is beyond the sky
And they do not 'go with
Such beings are as untamed
Shining, shining and
Their life is full of
laughter and puns
And they are always
I've met a few of them
And life was never the
They make one want
to take life's helm
And steer a better course
into the hereafter
To those of us fortunate
enough to meet them
I say, with all due deference,
do not try to stop one
Cause they are untamable
Instead, hold on to your
Become an untamed one
And shine line the sun,
the untamed sun!
