Back to Your Senses is an episodic series about people who take risks to do what gives them their greatest pleasure. The hostess, Andrea Claire Maio, produced a great interview for Absolute Michigan this summer at Electric Forest with Michigan musician Super Dre. Now she’s seeking support to develop Back to Your Senses through the crowd-funded online network Mobcaster. Andrea writes:
In America, pleasure is a bad word. It means that someone, somewhere, is giving in to temptation. Whatever pleasure is being sought, it’s probably indulgent. It’s probably selfish. It probably doesn’t do anybody any good. And yet, we are all born pleasure seekers. Our lives are shaped around pleasure. Day to day, the promise of pleasure is what drives us, from home to work and back again. And somehow, that promise, in today’s culture, seems less and less attainable the more we work towards it.
They are farmers, artists, scientists, and entrepreneurs. They are beacons for our future: leaving the safety of what they’ve known for the sake of what they love, and showing the way for those of us brave enough to do the same.
In addition to being able to help in the production of a smart, relevant show, the innovative Mobcaster project for Back to Your Senses will reward supporters with everything from postcards and stickers to delicious gift baskets brimming with Michigan goodness and curated epicurean adventures.
