I typed myself into Google today to see how long it would take to find me. .00019 seconds, to be exact, but to get to this julia e. I had to plow through hundreds of others. Had one of those transcendent experiences while squinting at the screen: I could be any of them; the eighty-year-old mathematician; novelist; rock star wannabe. Maybe I AM them; that this I/me is only momentary; that the contrasting lights are more permanent than I am.

I found myself eventually--a photo from a show--where I played the part of someone else.
