An offbeat short story by award-winning author Jeff Edwards.
Once upon a time, mankind dreamed of the stars. Somewhere along the way, that glorious vision got lost....
Hank Rollins is old, tired, and thoroughly regretting the missed opportunities of his youth. More than a half century ago, he passed up the chance to do something wonderfully foolish, and utterly impossible. A chance to reach for a different kind of future.
But the door may not be completely closed, because Hank is getting postcards from a boy who no longer exists, and a world that never came to pass.
