My apologies to everyone who has been wondering where I have disappeared to. I’m around but I have been quite busy and fairly exhausted. You know I’m behind on things when I post a Friday Fictioneers story on Friday. 🙂
Snow Angels in Hawaii
Keck had just found proof of life. I had, really. Soon I would be famous.
I lay in the snow outside, gazing up at the universe.
I don’t have a tie.
I sweat too much.
Talk shows. Ugh.
I looked up into Everything and almost cried. This wasn’t our universe anymore. We were younger brother now to a superior race. The vast parsecs where I had roamed for my career weren’t the frontier; they were someone else’s backyard.
I moved my arms back and forth, melancholy in my triumph, feeling as out of place as a snow angel in Hawaii.
*Keck Observatory is on Mauna Kea in Hawaii.
