Michigan’s Blue Economy

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Sometimes it inspires a whole book…

The Blue Economy is a concept that’s been on my mind for a while, and I touch on it a bit in my next novel, EMERGENCE, along with seasteading. But, that stuff is for the future. Be sure to check out the report from University Research Corridor for more information on where Michigan, specifically, could soon be headed.

Looking at this picture, though, the first word that popped into mind was “refuge.” Maybe just because it’s a Monday work-a-day struggle and I’m longing to get back up north for a summertime weekend getaway… Or, maybe, because there’s a larger story shaping up in my head, and that little concept of refuge is so much bigger.

I’ve got some research ahead of me, but the ideas are boiling and melding together pretty quickly. I may need to revise some future release plans, so we’ll see what happens next. But I’m definitely feeling those story-telling gears grinding again.
