Frankie - - FIRST THOUGHT -

The late, great David Bowie sang about them. Sup­pos­edly, they’re as good as a hol­i­day. They’re one of life’s few cer­tain­ties. And yet, some­times they can be scary as heck.

In this is­sue, we take a fly­ing leap into the great un­known, chat­ting with change­mak­ers in the realms of play­writ­ing, so­cial ac­tivism and cir­cus arts. We dis­cuss ways to make change hap­pen – in the in­ner­most cor­ners of our bustling minds, and out in the (of­ten over­whelm­ing) big, wide world. There are thought-pro­vok­ing per­sonal tales that might shift your views on cer­tain ideas (there’s no need to check off a to-do list be­fore you turn 30, for in­stance). Plus, we fea­ture folks who weren’t afraid to try some­thing new: train­ing ants in mazes; mix­ing booze and baked goods; and us­ing ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence to cre­ate some wack­adoo knit­ting.

Re­ally, change doesn’t need to be so daunt­ing – after all, it hap­pens around us all the time. A change of sea­son, un­der­wear, job, hair­style, lunch spot. With­out it, life would prob­a­bly be pretty dull.
