drone philosophy explores the trinity of mental illnesses – depression, anxiety, and disassociation – with the use of aural metaphor.
In drone philosophy i, a woman hides from the world in a house built on an unstable foundation at the edge of a ravine. drone philosophy ii, first published as Polynya in Issue 15 of SAND Journal, follows a man who signed up with the Canadian forces and fights isolation on one of the Queen Elizabeth Islands. The protagonist of drone philosophy iii, prone to panic attacks, struggles through his sister’s wedding. All three characters navigate a dark night of the soul and find a moment of solace.
