Woonsocket, Rhode Island, my home city, is a place steeped in the history of the Industrial Revolution. There, when graduating high school, people went to work in one of its dozen mills. For me, the lure of manual labor came at times in my life when I could no longer handle white collar bullshit, and I wanted just to keep my head down and work with my body, uninterrupted, minus the chit chat and the games. Also, the ancient and dank surroundings lent themselves well to my SciFi story “Tuesday Night’s Pick.” This is the subject of my latest Labyrinth Project Creators Journal. Sign up above with an email to never miss a notice of this short, thoughtful blog that thousands are enjoying.

Incidentally, for those interested, Woonsocket has probably the greatest museum dedicated to this topic and its history, The Museum of Work and Culture. On a nice day, take a ride and avail yourself of this wealth.
