1063 - Amor Fati Pizza Demolition Co.

From my sketchbook: a thumbnail drawing to help illustrate the difficult philosophical concept of amor fati, essentially the acceptance of death but also the role of fatality as a function of universal renewal.  
So why is a flying pizza attacking a highrise?
Because "Amor Fati" is also the title of a seventh-season episode of the X-Files.  To me, the most memorable part of that installment was an expensive-looking special effects sequence where triangular UFO's demolish a building that looked exactly like the apartment tower I used to live in many years ago.  It's a throwaway scene, though.  The X-Files stumbled heavily after the fifth season and never got better in seasons six through nine: I've watched them all.
