Odd Source

Three months to go. Three months of long drawn-out departure. Last night we met to eat with friends from here, and now the questions wander in a wider orbit, take on the speculative cast of a polite and melancholy light. The interstellar distances approach.

Another meal today. There will be more of these last meals, as the countdown proceeds and all around us the rocket shakes. And I shall write the science fiction these evoke.
