I used to love watching period dramas. Whatever the period, whatever the drama. But lately, I’ve found they don’t appeal. It’s like the here and now has gotten so backward, I don’t want to draw the past any nearer.
That said, I’m definitely going to watch that nazi-hunting show.
But now I want visions of a future, far off, nearby, it doesn’t matter. Yes, the space ships veer off course–they nearly always veer off course–but humanity hung in long enough to traverse the stars and have a course to veer from.
There’s something about imagining generations after generations, surviving, thriving even perhaps, conquering new problems. Usually new problems we’ve made for ourselves, but that’s the epitome of human nature, it seems.
This phase will end, of course. Probably right around the time I run out of future-set things to watch. But for now I want to keep my eyes ahead, facing forward.
Have a great Monday.
