Infinity makes me think about ALL the possibilities in the universe. What if it is possible to time travel? What if there is another Earth-like planet out there, somewhere? For this week’s Creative Prompt, imagine that it’s possible to correspond with the future.
I’ve found myself on an Afrofuturism kick this past year. While we can’t control the future, we have the ability to shape it.

Or perhaps they’re writing to inform you of some accomplishment of yours—big or small. The person sending this message can be a figment of your imagination, or your future self. The message can take the form of a poem, short story, email, letter, text message, collage, comic—there are infinite options for this exercise.
