#1 The Book of Endings taught me that every breath I take contains molecules from Julius Caesar’s final exhalation. The fact thrilled me - the magical compression of time and space, the bridging of what felt like myth and my life of autumn raking and primitive video games in Washington, D. C.

#2 The first suicide note was written by a man who wanted to die. But the soul, his maker, urged him to cling to life. We don’t know how the man responded. It is possible that the dispute with the soul resolved with the choice of life.

#3 During World War II, Americans in cities turned off their lights at dusk to prevent German U-boats from using urban backlighting to spot and destroy ships exiting harbor.
