I don’t know about you, but I am fed up with gravity. Curse these earthly shackles!
But I have devised a new gravity avoidance method (pictured here). It allows you to ascend toes-first into the sky. The method requires intense concentration. I think that is why it has not worked out so well for me. I have a difficult time dealing with distraction.
I almost got the method to work one time, but then I heard a radio commercial for a car dealership. Lesson learned: Turn off the radio before attempting an inverted levitation.
Another thing that can affect your success is whether you have had too much to eat. Please fast for at least 25 minutes before attempting the method.
I guess the last thing I need to say is that you will need to secure an FAA permit for some real high-altitude shit. Otherwise, please restrict yourself to a flight ceiling of 3,000 feet.
Also, if you figure out how to really make it work, please let me know.
I have a friend named Flink. We send each other stuff in the mail. In 2012, I started work on an enormous letter to him. I call this project the Great Big Letter. Various parts of the Great Big Letter were written at various times between 2012 and 2015.
The postcard above — written in late 2011 and announcing a hot new missive arriving in your mailbox sometime before 2014 — assumed a lengthy but somehow still wildly optimistic timeframe. This estimate was based on a previous Very Long Letter I had written to Flink over the course of several months in late 2010.
The Very Long Letter of 2010 was somewhere north of 100 pages. The Great Big Letter contains over 160 pages of text, and almost as many pages of collage. It was a different writing process.
The end result was a disgusting-looking ball of paper. So I scanned every page, printed the letter, and neatly bound it. The finished product is a thick brick of text that doubles as a doorstop.
I’ve posted a few snippets from the letter on Fully Psyched, and will likely be posting a few more every now and again. You can view all these excerpts by going to the category page for the Great Big Letter.
