All Sorts of Faraway

On this Earth Day I find my thoughts turning toward a different planet. Caprica. Yes, tonight I plan to watch a two-hour pilot for the Battlestar Galactica spin-off (even though the series doesn’t begin until next year). My busy brain seeks out escapism rather than dwelling on real world problems. Not terribly helpful, I realize, but I’m working on it. Back down to Earth…I am envious of Chris Guillebeau. The motivated young man who made - and is successfully carrying out - A Plan to See Every Country on Earth by the Age of 35. He also runs The Art of Noncomformity: Unconventional Strategies for Life, Work and Travel. I plan to explore that site a bit more (and hope to explore a bit more of the world eventually). And in much more local news, Mpls St. Paul Magazine featured our very own Sheela Namakkal, filed under People Who Do Cool Things. Cool indeed. Speaking of people who do cool things, I Like You! - a store featuring local, handmade items - has moved across town from South Minneapolis to NE. And I’ve got to work on doing my own cool things. I’ve mailed off my contract to participate as an artist/vendor in this year’s Red Hot Art Festival, in early June. That’ll be here before you know it. Enough of the escapism. Guess I need to work on “keeping it non-fiction.
