Holy Moly / What’s Next?

Predictions/reflections on what may come. Do you have a positive outlook about the future? A hopeful outlook? Or does the future feel more doom and gloom to you?

Use your creative skills to reflect your vision of the future and influences of the past for better or worse. Use a personal or a global perspective. Perhaps consider environmental, political, religious, medical or other societal issues. Perhaps envision an issue with an ideal utopian outcome? Or dystopian future?
