Around the World and Back Again
'I thought my flower photo was going to be boring,' said a Researcher, 'because they're everywhere around here.' This was after I'd exclaimed in awe and surprise about it.
'Remember,' I said for the umpteenth time, 'Everything on Earth is exotic to somebody.'
See, this is what we can do at h2g2 that other people aren't doing. We aren't rich, or politically powerful. We're not 'influencers' who change the world's buying habits. Heck, if we sell a few books in a month, we're over the moon around here. We don't expect anybody to be tweeting about us flying our own rockets to the moon anytime soon.
But there is something we do better than anybody else.
We give people snapshot glimpses of our planet, just by sharing what's out our own windows. Taken all together, it's a pretty interesting view. Do we hope to widen the horizon? We do, indeed. Keep watching this space for improvements and news.
In the meantime, here's what we've gathered for you this week:
We'll be back next week with more Stuff. (Send more Stuff!) Remember to take your cameras with you. What am I saying? You need those phones, anyway. Just don't forget to push the button when you see something cool. And videographers: Youtube viewers demand that you turn the camera sideways when filming. Otherwise, you will get yelled at. But you can send your video clips to the Post Editor if you like. Film production a specialty.
Quote of the Week: They say you can never go home again; I wish it were true, but suspect otherwise.
Awix, world traveller and weary observer
|LONG AGO AND/OR FAR AWAY|
I HAD A DREAM ONE DAY
Guess what it is.
Clouds on Mars.
Slow down, you move too fast.
|ALADDIN'S LAMP IS MINE|
|SUNDRY AND VARIOUS|
Happy Flag Day.
Interior elegance, Lego version.
