Sci Fi Short: Scavenger

I love when I run across something that reminds me of all the good things people can do.

This sci-fi short imagines an alien running across the Voyager 1 spacecraft and its precious cargo of music, greetings in multiple languages, and children singing. The alien is understandably entranced, and falls in love with humanity and a human woman, causing him to seek out Earth. Yes, it’s the plot of the first Star Trek movie – cut me some slack, I’ve had a rough week.  

I love being reminded that despite the news, Good Things are still happening. People are still communicating messages of hope by making art and music and working together on passion projects.

I love that technology amplifies crystalline notes of hope, and that anyone with the bandwidth and computer access can experience it.

I love that someone imagined an alien falling in love with the best of what humans are capable of.

I love this, and that I’m still alive to appreciate it.

I love.

Not Dead, Just Resting*

When the news gets too bleak I make a point to visit things like The Good News Network, so I can see that there are still good things happening in the world.

Just been busy writing and doing stuff. I’ve been watching Daredevil and  I’m on episode… 9? I would describe but SPOILERS.

The terrible news from Belgium has been on my mind, and on top of that I have friends struggling with health problems, so I’ve not been in the mood to blog much. I’ve been watching things, just not thinking too much about them, and writing a lot.
