100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups – Week#51

July 25, 2012

I am in awe of the contributors who are so imaginative and creative. I made a comment to this effect to one of the bloggers and his poignant reply inspired me to write this.

The prompt is … the line was drawn…

I allowed my mind to run wild; go to its limits.  Let it to take novel routes to mythical places; dark and remote, to dabble with the occult.  Later it boarded the slow train to warmer climes of richness and romance.  It was eager to jet to Rio for the flamboyance of carnival and a cable car to the lofty heights of the Sugar Loaf Mountain.  Gave it opportunity to wander beyond the realms of parental guidance and get dirty.  It drilled down to the bowels of the earth; discovered mines of wealth and energy. Then the line was drawn and it came back.

    Nicely done piece which illustrates the journey taken well. A single thought allowed to run free and who knows where it could take you…

    This is lovely. I too am in awe of so many of the writer’s on here, but am slowly learning that I should use them as inspiration rather than to shut me down in fear. The imaginative journey is different for each and every one of us. Yours is wonderful! 🙂
