“5/11/08 Fifty-five years after Galileo saw the moons of Jupiter, Cassini observed the
Great Red Spot. They say it’s a vast anticyclone, perhaps four hundred years old and
twice the diameter of the earth. It rotates every giant gaseous fourteen days, roughly
six of ours. Pinwheel, by Jove. Some mystics hold that the Creator, a cyclops, plucked
out his eye the better to observe us, and that when it… well, we’ll see. Or not.”

New York writer Eric Darton’s Born Witness dispatches from May 2008 weave together his observations of self, city and world during the extraordinary latter years of the new century’s first decade, via narrations in journal form.
