About This Site

EGrabow HD is my home on the internet: serving as soap box, digital distribution center, and creative outlet. This is a place to express myself. If I like a design, have an opinion, or just want to play around... this website is where I can place it, post it, try it, whatever.

"HD" stands for "High Definition," but not in the HDTV/ consumer electronics sense. I've had this website since 2001, and in the time I've been here I've gone from teen to adult, New Yorker to Floridian, become a more spiritual person, and even discovered a desire for writing fiction. I've learned more about the man I am... as if becoming higher-definition myself. With reflecting this journey it was appropriate to give it the "HD" title. Besides, I like the branding.

New stuff is always popping up here... don't hesitate to let me know if there's anything I could do to make it better.

A Sample From My Novel

I passed through empty security posts and into the crowded library. Another barrier conveniently removed for me. When a passing guard didn't seem to notice me, I brought myself to follow him and tap him on the shoulder. My finger went through him as if I were a ghost.

I put my hand on a nearby table. It felt solid. I called to one of the people sitting a few meters away.

"Excuse me."

The man didn't respond. My hand passed through the book he held, but not the ones on the bookshelves. I took one off only to find the same book still on the shelf. I opened the one in my hands and flipped its pages as quickly as I could, watching for the split-second the words rendered onto them. I dropped it and grabbed a second book, opening it immediately, opening it in the middle. I saw the beginning of the first chapter.

They're slowing down, I thought. They're messing up. Maybe I was right. Maybe I can give them more data than they can handle at once. Malvirai or no.

A second guard approached from a distance, as oblivious to my presence as the first. I felt an ache and the light around me started to shimmer. The guard stopped to look at something, standing in my aisle's narrow entrance. I watched carefully and realized his image was becoming blurry. He turned and took another step towards me, vanishing as he entered the aisle... no longer in the view of a camera.

"Welcome to Los Angeles Public Library, Mister Dauphin. What can I help you find?"

There was some kind of glowing effect around the librarian amai. It was spreading to every object in the room.

"Your books are malfunctioning."
