Around we go (Friday Fictioneers)

November 28, 2019

Some days it’s as though this mad roundabout of life is one you cannot get off from. The daily grind of public transport, driving, school, coffee, food, kids, pets, sports, work, elderly parents and so on. It just goes on and on. And yet… in our imaginations, our lives can be endless and exciting. We just need to find the time to let our minds soar.

Do you?

Kids do it… as easy as breathing.

Reality is a harsh lover.

Find a good book, or a movie, or music. Let your mind take flight. Let go of gravity.



This is a Friday Fictioneers Prompt

  1. I tried to let go of gravity. Now I’m stuck on the ceiling

  2. Sound advice Laurie – I really should try and follow it a bit more!

    • I saw some kids dressed up as firemen and firewomen and they were so darn happy… these days I don’t think I could be THAT happy about anything and I wonder, why?

  3. Yes! Let go of the mundane day-to-day… if just for an hour or so…
    Nice one.

  4. Dear Laurie,

    Love the use of the roundabout to address everyday life. We as writers, delve into our imaginations and create new worlds, don’t we? Lovely write.



  5. Timely reminder of how it is possible to escape from reality into the realms of the imagination – we just have to remember how we did it when we were children. Nice take on the photo prompt, Laurie.

  6. Thank goodness I have my writing to escape to. Without it, heaven knows where I’d be! Wise words indeed Laurie.

  7. Each and every day …. I would love to do that book thing..

  8. I like this. What we’d all like to do, I think.
