The Sandbox Writing Challenge #42 – A Fim Divided

I’m really undecided about this question Lady Calen over at Impromptu Promptlings has posed this week:

DIVIDED Challenge

What divides you?

First thought: WTF?

Second thought: I’ve never been good at division.

Okay, now, getting serious: Everything

Really, I’m always torn between things. I want to do this, but I have to do that. I’d prefer to just go live on a tropical Island somewhere, with no electricity, no nothing. Just me and he and our insane little family of critters.

But I can’t. So I’m divided between who I want to be, and who I have to be.

That’s only the HALF of it.

The Sandbox Writing Challenge #41 – Seduces Me

This week, over at Impromptu Promptlings, Lady Calen presents us with quite the thought provoking question:

What other worlds entice me?

Not that I’m not part of Nature, and that I don’t get out in the midst of it as often as possible, but that is a world, apart from my daily reality, which entices me. Communing with the Green Ones is something I wish I could do continuously. But, of course, living life includes having to tend to ADL, which takes me away from being outside.

Still, there are also different other worlds which call to me, so much so, that I answer. I’ve mentioned this first one often. It is a world which speaks to me on a integral level, but also a world which Little Girl Lost gravitates to, now that she’s out playing.

A second version, came into being, which has captured my heart, and has turned out to be rather more challenging:

When I’m giving my inner child the reins, of course, one passion leads to another, and I’ve recently discovered Paradise Bay:

My mind still goes back to Middle Earth, which has reigned supreme as the idyllic world – apart from the fighting. The seeming simplicity of the life of Hobbits, made it a wondrous world.

And the magic brought by the Elves:

I’ve made lemonade out of the rather disturbing lemons of life, and I don’t mind that it is a virtual beverage. After all, it was in Virtual Reality that I met my wonderful Knight in Shining Armor and to whom I am wed.

That’s the thing about books and film.  Ed Chigliak, in Northern Exposure put it best. Film is “White man’s medicine.” And I find that to be so for myself.

P.S. Holy Michael Allouicioius Finnegan! This long strange trip its been through the nightmare alley of wordpress commenting these last days, brought me to yet another world which beguiles me. The Alternate Universe! YES, that draws me in beyond belief. It just hit me.

What would my life have been were I aware of the alternate universes in which this life is lived a million other ways? Who would I have been, how would I have felt? What about time travel? Now THERE’s a lure if there ever was one.
