Promptly Friday: The Reaching (intro)

Deep space.

A dream of mankind to explore. The dream to continually discover the unknown. Our dreams took centuries to achieve but we held on to them.

Sure there were many broken hearts who couldn’t reach the stars, but those who were able to take their first walks in space? The excitement! The wonder! The pioneers of those first missions brought back stories of such magnificence mere images could not duplicate.
Those days were the forefront of exploration for our people. Before the Reclaiming returned our ability to touch the stars. Before the Receding revealed the lands we had lost.

Long before the Rising enveloped the world and swallowed it in floods, our Solar Fathers set the stages for our continued explorations.

Our Reclaiming gave us much more than ability.  It gave us hope, courage, and lost knowledge. We now write our names in stardust as our Solar Fathers did before.

We will find ourselves spread far, discovering all this universe has to offer; hopefully discovering the deeper mysteries that lie in wait. We will discover this universe and those beyond our own.

The Reaching begins here. It begins with us.

About T. A. Rindler

What dreams may come when the mind dances in worlds of imagination? Wordsmithing. It started as a hobby. Now I'm in the process of trying to make it something more than just that. My mind dances fluidly through imaginative world's both hellish and serene, and all that lies between. I've dabbled in so many ideas and interests, but writing has always been something that I would always return to doing. Whether I was writing a story, poetry, abstract thoughts, ideas, essays, or even written/online debates, I have always enjoyed the creative stream of ideas that spring forth. Join me in my journey!
