Glasgow landing

Well look at this, another great big backlog built up over the course of almost the whole of March, and I’m going to try to get these all done before the stroke of midnight (and the onset of April Fool’s) so that the monthly archives don’t get distorted. First up is from the 3rd, and here’s what my notes tell me:

  • While seemingly already at a terrestrial vantage point, at night, looking southwest or so, I perceived that we were zooming in toward Earth from space; we approached Great Britain, then Glasgow, eventually landing there. Very steampunk. (This is curious because IRL I know very little about Glasgow.)
  • At another point, there was a building on a ski mountain leading up the slope; I went up a ways and looked out from it. (I’m not sure what “leading up the slope” means here, as I don’t remember this scene directly, but it’s what my notes say.)
  • At yet another point, a group of us in, I suppose, a charrette, were picking preferences for a (graduate) schooling location in New Orleans by placing little model pieces of the campuses/buildings in consideration onto a satellite map at the same scale in order of preference. One area, which then became the direct point of view, was by the river, along the eastern side of crescent (south of the Central Biztrict), with two long modern buildings, one having a shed-size section and maybe a black roof, and the other being larger and maybe of concrete or plaster; the site was large and flat and was maybe a wharf of the port; there were possibly other buildings around. The interior of the light building was open all the way through and surrounded by translucent windows. It was early morning, with low hazy northeast sunlight.
