Tuesday 31 January 2023 – On a Frosty Day recap

Volume 1, Issue 5

Site of the unnamed character confronting its past and “KEEP OUT UNLESS YOU ARE READY” sign.

Part Two of ON A FROSTY DAY saw the unnamed character’s past resurrect itself behind a chain link fence and sign that read “KEEP OUT”. Was that a suggestion or a command?

But the second sign, “UNLESS YOU ARE READY”, seemed a direct challenge. Given its unremarkable journeys had produced this moment, the character must be ready to go beyond the fence and signs. How could it not be? Of course it was ready.

But for what? And what would happen if it wasn’t? Those doubts caused it to step away.

Updates on the unnamed character’s thoughts and reactions to the sign will be posted in the coming months. Before then, and in February, is DEAD AIR. It’s a story about a country whose music broadcast is hijacked. What happens if its musical identity is taken away? THE 3:57 will introduce DEAD AIR one week from today on Tuesday 7 February.

Until then, cheers.
