UFOrever is the manifestation of breaking points. When life turns in unexpected ways and you are alienated from your own understanding of yourself: as lovers leave, as family members die, their mirroring of you is also gone. In the state of upheaval and new beginnings you are left to create a new identity, a new understanding of yourself, which can feel as alien as an UFO. Still the past lingers within and guides you toward the unknown, a new inner landscape—and it's up to you to create a new narrative. So why write it so squarely, when you have bold and fantastic options? It can be anything you want it to be.
