Abstract
The Everywhere Chronicles is a body of work that has been perambulating through my mind since the halcyon days of childhood. It is not intended as any sort of catharsis, metaphorical or otherwise, nor is it any forum of self discovery, accidental or intentional. These Chronicles are quite simply a journey into imagination, an exercise in "what ifs?". They confront the theory that Columbus was actually on a munchies run to an Indian Takeaway in Ipswich and simply took a wrong turn at the Antilles, and that the Lost City of Atlantis is alive and well somewhere outside of Duluth and counts among its major exports-lumber, ale, and peanut based prophylactics. In the end, I did not want to write this thesis, but I had to. It seems to be some sort of requirement. And it has left me wondering if Michelangelo would have been a much better artist if he too had had to find out what an "Abstract" was and how to write it. Enjoy my nervous breakdown.
