The Election That Fear Built

Okay. It isn’t funny anymore. I’ve been feeling kinetic. Manic. My anxiety is tangible; it drips down my fingers like the juice from a recently peeled orange. I stick to the table with it.

Pluto: Greece of the Galaxy

Pluto: Greece of the Galaxy

It’s been a big week for small places making news. NASA sent the New Horizon’s space craft into Pluto’s orbit and it took photos with more detail than we’ve ever seen before. Pluto is officially round. Thank you NASA, thank you scientists, thank you space race. We got him!! I know very little about space. I know there are worm holes, I… Read More »
