Holding On To You

Much of my love for others has been unrequited. I am referring to various types of love. Love is not always a two-way street. It is up to the driver to heed the caution signs. Missing a stop sign could result in fatalities. Most of us are not deterred by the risks. We know that we may never get to where we want to be if we do not get behind the wheel. Terence Trent D’Arby’s Holding On To You (1995) is a compelling song about a search for requited love. It’s great music to listen to while driving.

Nature never had a patent on the diamond–and any patent would have expired after billions of years anyway.

The Carbon Hierarchy

There’s only one possible source of carbon that would be superior to the human body–though it’s not likely that the soul has any. I’m sure extracting carbon from the soul would be an extremely difficult process. It sounds unethical (even more sacrilegious than diamond mining). The price of a diamond created from soul carbon would probably be astronomical. So with the Heart In Diamond, we have not hit a plateau. We have reached a peak.

Science Says

All carbon comes from the stars in our world (astrophysicists).

The carbon in diamonds can now come from the organic stars in your world (the lab guys).

Equilibrium Is Ideal

Man-made diamonds are more proof that technology is helping our humanity catch back up.

Be Thankful For What You Got

I remember going to the laundromat with my mother when I was around ten. Our washing machine at home was on the blink. We didn’t have to wait for washers as there were only a few people in the establishment. I spotted two arcade games in the back and asked my mother for some quarters. Each game required 50 cents for a turn. I chose one and put in two quarters. It took the money but did not give me a turn. I pushed on the coin return button and nothing happened. I told my mother what had transpired. There was no laundromat attendant around. We approached the game and my mother pushed the coin return button a few times. Nothing happened. She began kicking the area where the coins go in. Her sturdy left tennis shoe made a thunk with each impact. I had never seen my mother kick anything before. I tried not to laugh but the sight of my mother doing kung fu was too much for me to accept. I burst out laughing. My mother stopped for a moment and said, “You wait and see the next time I give you money for a game!” She went back to her kung fu. Quarters began to fly out of the game’s coin door. By the time she was done, we got enough quarters to dry all of our loads. I love my mother very much and will always be grateful to her for this memory. William DeVaughn’s Be Thankful For What You Got (1974) is one of her favorite songs. It’s also one of mine.

Divorce Rings

Divorced couples can’t even resist the draw to the Heart In Diamond. Many are getting divorce rings with each diamond created from the carbon of both exes. Of course, in most cases, the cost is being split 50-50.

Now that we have the Heart In Diamond, the diamonds in the earth have become dry ice. They’re just not exciting and shouldn’t be touched.
