New story published: Whiteness

New from Bourbon Penn: Whiteness

As far as I can see there is only whiteness. If I could move my head, I would say that the whiteness encircles me. Perspective smudges the vast distance I cannot comprehend into meaningless white space. I've always thought that empty space should be black. Pure white is just as empty, but there is a greater illusion of distance because it is lighted. I need the light to see the nothingness. Without seeing it, the immensity of emptiness in front of me would have no meaning. ...

It's a surreal, bizarre story based on an old childhood drawing of mine. I still have the drawing. Maybe I'll scan it and share it with the world someday.
