Dreamer’s Disease

Music for Cosmic Loneliness

By Lauren ColgatePublished about a year ago 3 min read

Let’s say you were just abducted by aliens near Area 51. Let’s say you are alone in the universe. Let’s say you’re teenager in a small town full of angst and longing. Think of the moon. Think of Mars. Remember that the universe-

it’s expanding.
