Driving Through Space
This afternoon I was invited to a luxury beach villa, one hour north of my current destination — Cape Town.
My friends rented this villa for a few nights, so they can do a photoshoot with models for their company, Om and Ah.
A nice villa by the beach, with models?
Count me in.
(I’ve been meaning to test grounding, so it all worked out.)
Because I left Cape Town in the evening, the drive along the west coast of South Africa was surreal; it was dark, foggy, and at times, spooky.
Listening to Tiamat’s Wrath, sci-fi space opera, was fitting.
As I was driving my car through darkness, I couldn’t help but imagine myself driving a ship through space.
I’ll likely not drive a spaceship in my lifetime, I imagine.
But someone in my lineage?
Space is something I think about fairly often, because it allows me to take my mind off all of the usual daily bullshit in the news.
There’s a much bigger world out there, waiting to be discovered.
What about you — does space cross your mind?
