Inconceivable

When I was a child my father took me to see something incredible. Something so amazing, inconceivable, and beyond any reasonable amount of comprehension for me to truly comprehend as an eight-year-old child. Clearly, I remember my father taking me to see something he had been working on. Something so amazing that I simply had to see it. I couldn't be sure what it was, and of course, at the time, he wouldn't tell me.

Throughout my childhood, while all my friends sought social interaction, I chose to be alone, reading books, visiting museums, going to the library, and exploring.

When I explained that I needed more room to write my thoughts, the teacher...
