Reposted from here. “Believe,” they said. You just have to be firm in your belief. What a load of donkey’s bollocks. “Be like the leaf in the wind,” they said. What does that even mean? “Be the change you want to see in the world.” At least that makes some modicum of sense to me,

Hallow by Captain Raz @captainraz

Reposted from here. The night air is chill and smells of grave earth. It is autumn and the trees are all but bare. Even though I’m not affected by the cold I instinctively pull my cloak closer about me; long memory forces me into habits I no longer need. The moon rises too slowly for

Featureless by Jeroen van Rijn @J_vanRijn

Reposted from: here As the sun came up over the shortened horizon, the helmet protected the Lunar miner by blanking the faceplate automatically. A featureless helmet gazing out over featureless regolith. There were features, of course. As someone who’d come up from Earth mere months ago, now starting up at the blue marble, the landscape

Featureless by Captain Raz @captainraz

Reposted from: here The view from the bunker is the same as it has been for the past ninety six days; endless plains of grey dust indistinguishable from one another.
