Dreaming of Small Worlds is a bi-weekly (every two weeks) blog where a different small world in our solar system is featured. These won’t be the big 8 planets but a different world that is not popularly known.
Each post begins with an ink wash drawing of the featured world, followed by real information. (Often learned from the incredible website NASA.gov).
This is followed by a dream-like narrative of what could possibly (but not likely) be happening on these small worlds using facts, my imagination and then dreaming while I paint and write and sleep.
This project begins with the worlds that orbit the sun in the Main Asteroid Belt between the planets Mars and Jupiter.
Many of the very short stories on this site are as much about living with change as they are about asteroids and science fiction, (but they are about that, too). Anxiety and uncertainty in the midst of change is something we all us think about these days.
I live in Minneapolis, MN with my son, Themis, on the first floor of a high-rise brutalist apartment building. Cement and glass and was built in 1972 which is the same year I was built in.
Our apartment is one city block from the Mississippi river and close to one of the largest college campuses in the U.S.
Wild life comes into our tiny front yard frequently. Especially gangs of wild turkeys.
