What do people often say is a waste of time, not real,
an escape from reality?

What creates vast castles in the clouds, lone watches on gorgeous beaches, with only three things you were allowed to bring?

What can frighten us in the dark of night and inspire us in the darkest of days, lead us on wild goose chases and out of impossible situations?

Where did this
Come from?

Why won’t it go away?

If only.
I wish.
I hope that never happens.
IF that should ever happen, here’s what I’ll do.
Next time that happens, I will have a plan.

The human mind, a frightening, glorious, ironically tiny space. Who could have dreamt such a thing into existence?

I wonder, put down my pen, and wonder some more before continuing with
my day.


This is my daily post for the A-Z Challenge. Happy Monday!

    1. =D I’d say reality IS all there is, by definition, but reality alone can’t tell us what can be and what was before. This one made me think! Thanks Keith.

      1. Precisely! Without imagination, there could still be past and present (though no interpretation of it), but no future. How would politics run if no-one could foresee and plan for future events? Where would medical, scientific and space research be?
        And how would it be if you couldn’t imagine how it would be?

  1. Imagination indeed. It usually offers me the best parts of my day (and the worst). I can’t fathom my live without it, or maybe I just don’t want to.
