While at the Dollar Tree, I picked up a novel that looked promising, and a bit reflective of my current scenario: Spaceman of Bohemia by Jaroslav Kalfar. As one would expect, I was skeptical about buying a $1 book from a dollar store but it's really great, so far.
There was a specific piece of the story that I felt deep within my soul as I read it, and I'm beginning to fear that she might leave me, instead of vice-versa.
The spaceman, Jakub, is weeks into his journey to Venus, isolated and lonely within his ship. He is consumed, and tormented, by the thought of a dissolving marriage between his wife, Lenka, the only person in the entire universe he loves and cherishes.
The two are confined to a 1.5 hour weekly video conversation, and while Jakub desparately prepares to chat with his beloved at the scheduled time, she leaves him in the (space) dust.
Is this also my destiny?
