The point is that we often make things hard. When they should be easy. Things creep into life and take up time. Barriers and boundaries are pushed, ties and relationships building up, some chosen, some not.
It's been a time of closed doors and open hearts and changes everywhere. Of people desperate to let off steam or escape poverty. Of those who can and those who can't. We don't need to travel. We could live our lives happy as our ancestor did, in the same village, not going much distance.
In space we don't notice the gazillion hectares of nothingness. It's the stars and planets. The contrasting light in the unending void.
tory Icons is a long term project for me. It started a few years ago on Chartopia as an experiment and has progressed with Pirates and Cyberpunk. It's an ongoing project which is fun, challenging and creative. And is also language-independent and has the potential to be much more.
