riding the outer ring of your own private saturn
for the past couple of months ive been thinking a lot about outer space:
also these posts are evident : April, June
I had thought this had something to do with research i did for a paper about traveling in space.
HOWEVER ever since then I've been surprised come across many examples of outer space being a current trend. I noticed Style Rookie's blog was full of astronomical images, and The Cut went as far as to say "Astronauts Are So Hot Right Now." This in addition to many other extraterrestrial encounters I've had these days on the internet.
This troubled me. There isn't anyway i could have influenced any trends*. And that only leaves room for somehow following a trend unconsciously. I know i am not the only one almost suddenly enthralled with space. Is it funny how this happens around the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Spacecraft? Are the selling something? Are we all just bobbing around somehow getting fooled into silly new passing fancies? i know there are a ton of assholes out there who believe that.
*of course there is always the chance i could just be a trendsetter, yeah?
maybe i unconsciously willed the cosmos into the spotlight.
