Biobot at the Beach
She recalls pulses emanating images in smoke off the water, that not every one she knows recalls being raised cage-free.
It's something she prefers in her life, at this moment--her measures of stress that strike at the heart of her most heroic moments.
Did it mean anything to her, she wondered, sitting on this beach, that she is required in the final analysis to discontinue? That all this environmental stuff has to keep going when she simply stops?
Does she find comfort that her ending would be a pure finish?
Did she really care that on this very beach, near those mountains, that jungle, within the quantums of her mind, this nano-second, she is alive?
