Letters from DEVSOC

From Dust.

At about 3PM, I got fired from my job that had, until very recently, been hinting at equity in the company; a high five-figure income earned largely from home suddenly scratched down to zero. A few hours later, my roommate told me he was moving out. Thirty days from today, my reliable source of income and the routine I’d fallen into with my housemate will be no more. Someone else will be sharing my space, and I’ll have to figure out where the next check is coming from or it won’t come at all.

To quote a favourite artist of mine, Gift of The Gab - "I can think of nothing less likely to fly". But as Humans, we have the ability to think. Thought is an important tool, it took us billions of years of thinking to get from microscopic organisms in the depths of the ocean, to flirting around the atmosphere at the drop of a hat. Aircraft propel us into the sky and allow us to see things that the majority of life that has lived before us couldn't comprehend. And the very nature of thought allowed me to think whilst on a flight from NCL to DUB over the holiday period.
