Kurt Vonnegut is not an auther that I've read much of before, but Harrison Bergeron is one of my favorite short stories from high school. Yes, I know it's a libertarian song but maybe it's more relevant now that we all have cellphones to distract us. This week I read Slaughterhouse-Five and was treated to Vonnegut's time asynchronous and surreal look at charaters. Looking at a person's life in snippets from all parts of it juxtaposed in a way that tells several stories simultatneously is a literary device I find enjoyable because it reminds the reader of their own mortality as well as reminding them that the important moments in their life will always be important and are not just confined to the past.

Here we are, trapped in the amber of the moment. There is no why.
