Walking into work today, well, walking in from where I parked, I found myself gazing up at the stars, and I realized two things. First, I get into work way too early. Before the sun even rises. Roosters are not even up when I am at work. But that is not the point of today’s blog.
I also realized that my mind wonders to wandering. I would love to travel in space. I would love to go to the stars and see what is there. I think that’s why I read so much science fiction and science fantasy. It allows me to go to where I will never have the chance. It allows me to actually use my imagination, and use the imagination of others to travel where I can’t go in reality.
Now, some may ask what the difference between science fantasy and science fiction is. Well, to paraphrase Arthur C. Clarke, Science Fiction is what you do not want to happen, but there is a good chance that it will, like most of his writings. And Science Fantasy is what you want to happen, but probably won’t, like Star Wars.
I would love to walk on another world. I would love to travel among the stars. And yes, I would even go to Mars knowing it was a one-way trip. It would be amazing. Besides, the human race has already started to ruin this planet, I think we should spread to other planets, and ruin them.
