Coming Together - Escaping Loneliness
Chapter 6. Coming together - escaping loneliness I'm a little unsure if it's so wise of me to talk to her so much about these things. After all, experiencing loneliness from time to time is a natural part of most people's lives. So therefore, I should have stopped there.
I Believe in What I See
Chapter 3. I Believe in What I See I'm not a very suspicious person. I believe in what I see and I have always believed in her before.

The Warning and the Decay
ABOUT THE NOVEL THE LAST HUMAN IN THE MILKY WAY In 2021 I wrote the first 30+ chapters of my novel The Last Human in the Milky Way. Then I took a break for a few months from writing the novel.

I'm Just a Barn Owl
I'm just a barn owl. During the day I sit high up here and stagger in a corner under the roof of the old barn. Almost no one notices that I'm here. It happens from time to time that I make a dark sound - UHU, u-hu. The sound seems to linger in the barn for a few seconds, but after that it is quiet. I'm mostly silent, and when they look for me they cannot see me in the shades.
