So far I have made no interplanetary contact and I am averse to grave digging, so instead I must make art in my search for clues about the people who carried my DNA here and packaged it up for me. I am looking for secrets about those people and I am trying to figure out why those secrets matter. I wonder if they try to send me messages from space and whether I could decode them if I were to climb to the peak of a mountain and scale the radio towers to the beeping red lights at the top. I would like to find out whether they need me or whether I might be able to right any wrongs against them. I want to know whether I have cousins on other worlds and if I do, I would like to know if they are interested in a pen-pal relationship. I would like to know how to make that happen.
I am looking for clues in the paint, under the soil, in old boxes, and in layers of cloth. I’m glad that the universe is so big and I’m a little bit relieved that I am so small. I want to know why important people from my past leave hints in hard-to-find places and why they are different every time. I want to find my whole family and the families of my family. Even when I think I am not looking and even when I try to avoid it, I am always following their trails.
