Stream of consciousness prose for today.
Future Bodies - a play created in collaboration between two theatre companies, this explosion of colour, sounds and visuals is a powerful reminder of what our bodies and minds are capable of.
I'm fascinated by the stars, astrology, the cosmos, and anything to do with space. Sometimes it's nice to get away from all the "red shift" and "quantum" stuff, though, and just imagine.
On days like today - when the rain is relentless and all I'd rather do is curl up with a book or sit at the keyboard and write - is when I produce my best work. There's something whimsical about the rain which brings out creativity. Whether anyone else has this motivation from the weather - specifically rain - I don't know. I'm sure I'm not the first and I'm sure I won't be the last. What particularly struck me about today as a rainy day was that I had a revelation.

Specifically, I wanted to comment on games as narratives. Now if you're a gamer, surely you play for the entertainment value. But how important is the story?
