07/07/21 – Dear Alkyine

Spacetrawler, audio version For the blind or visually impaired, July 7, 2021.




As someone who still writes letters by hand, I can’t help but infuse my hobby into my stories sometimes.

    With the tiny size of the “planetoid” and the inky-black starry sky, I definitely expected to see space suits worn in today’s SpaceTrawler. I guess perhaps Coyoty is right.

    Ah, le petit prince Chiphu, si seul et pourtant si assailli!

    For someone so isolated, he sure has a horsedoctor’s dose of problems, doesn’t he? Not counting sandwiches and a strange mechanic showing up.

    It’s interesting to watch his emotional journey, very different from what’s happening with everybody else. I get the impression he’s not over all the rough spots yet. Indeed, hasn’t hit the bulk of them. His infatuation with Alkyine is only the start. I wish him well. If only I didn’t recall Jimmy Johnson’s line: “The dog of love starts across the eight-lane highway of life.”
