This is an older story, but I thought it was about time I dusted it off and posted it online. I really love the idea of lost and sad robots in the depths of space. Of course, both Pioneer 10 and 11 as well as Voyager 1 and 2 are still out there, right now.

The poem Seeing Off A Man of the Tao is from the collection WHEN I FIND YOU AGAIN, IT WILL BE IN MOUNTAINS: SELECTED POEMS OF CHIA TAO translated by Mike O'Connor. It is a beautiful collection of poetry. Chia Tao wrote haunting poetry many, many years ago. He died in 843...not 1843, 843. Let that sink in for a bit. I think the thing that draws me to the "Buddhist Poet Monks" is how universal their work is. Loves and losses that feel like they could have been written yesterday. Amazing.
