I travel to understand cultures....

"I'm passionate and I travel the world not just as a tourist but to understand cultures... I've lived with Masai tribe... I travel the world and bring it back in the form of a research book that would become the starting point for the collection."
~John Galliano

Over the weekend I got to experience a Comic Con for the first time. (First time?!?) It was brilliant.

To understand any geek culture is to understand that it goes further than mere interest. Many of these people are scholars in their fandoms, having done enough research to write multiple thesis papers (and some have), put on entire performances, and build worlds. If that makes you feel lazy, it should. These aren't folks languishing in their "parents' basements." These "geeks" are motivated; they are obsessed.  They have a passion that simply can't be killed. We should all have that kind of drive in our lives... And amazing communities to share it with.

More to come!
