I'm getting ready for a trip


My suitcase is ready. I’m about to take off.
Last year I wrote a story that takes place in the year 2095. The editors of a magazine are excited about this story. Therefore, I will be traveling back to the year 2095 to revisit the characters’ souls and their ambiance.
 The literary world can explore the past, reveal the present and speculate about the future.
 Do you ever read stories about the future?
Isaac Asimov, Aldous Huxley and George Orwell are examples of writers who wrote  insightful stories about the future. Writers who dare to imagine the future transcend the boundaries of reality while they observe the present and remember the past.
  Human nature does not change, but everything else does.
  It is not only technology that changes.  Science, the environment, behaviors, society, views also change. 
Even religions can change. It was a mere coincidence that one or two days before I published my post on Italian Art a Catholic nun delivered a healthy baby in Italy. One hundred years ago  the birth of this baby would have been considered a scandal. In the year 2015 the announcement was welcomed with cheer and delight. (Thankfully, things have changed.)
 It is time to depart.
 If I don’t get to post anything next Saturday you will know the reason: I will be in the year 2095.

  3. Bon Voyage to 2095, Julia! Wonderful news that the magazine editors are excited about your story; I'm very happy for you. I find it fascinating to be exploring the possibilities of a future world. As much as I love stories set in the past, I love stories set in the future even more. That colorful painting at the end of your post is beautiful! Enjoy the future world. :)
