It was thought that the gods blew on creative people, who would then inhale the god's breath and have an idea. This is the premise of "inspiration": inhaling divine breath and ideas.

Déjà vu

3WW #83

This week’s words are:


I love to picture the below scene in my mind. With a variety of backdrops but similar elements. And every time I come out of this phantasm, there is a sense of serenity.

A breezy evening with the sunset as the background. I am sitting on an arm chair in the veranda (open porch), last rays of sun dancing on the floor near my feet. A PG Wodehouse omnibus collection on my lap with my favorite bookmark placed at the right page ( indicating that it's only a break). A cup of Irish coffee in my hand. And as I take a sip my eyes relish upon the lush green lawn, carefully mowed (not by me otherwise I will keep looking for imperfections). When I lift my eyes toward skyward I let out a sigh at the rising moon and cool breeze almost electrifies me.

Stop. It should just long for this much. Not a minute more or less; or the fun gets ruined. When my mind reflects upon the illusionary dream, it really seems I traveled to a different dimension altogether.

  1. Lots of interesting thoughts in this piece. Surely too much of a good thing is just that - too much. I like the way you move into the scene and out.

  2. Probably a wise idea to put that stop in. You might get too lost in that dream. Which is a nice one, by-the-way! Very evocative piece.

    World So Wide

  3. It is a wonderful vision, I was so relaxed, I think I will take the time tomorrow to write one. Thank you.

  4. To Tumblewords:

    I wanted to put too much of good into it. Thats why I wrote it.

    To Leonard Blemfeld

    Completely agree with the stop thing you said.

    To Marcia

    I felt the same way when I read it. Relaxing.

  5. I love the way you put the "stop" in, it gets your attention and makes your point. Well done.

  6. Ah! The TrOOTH is that I too am glad to have found your blog... ;-) Have put in a more detailed response to your comment on my blog...before coming over to say something here... :)

  7. mm..great way to transport ourselves to another realm. Love the post.
