Coming & Going

"The rude awakening of the morning struck a light in my eyes. Enveloped in a never-ending sea of dandelions, the occasional delicate flower sprouted where it was unwanted. This is where I lay. As I arched myself over, I lifted myself up and stood in the fields that had coaxed me into a deep slumber. I wondered where I was, and how I had gotten to be here. I wondered who I was or what I was. I wondered if there was any chance I was still dreaming. I stood perplexed as waves of confusion began to wash over me, and I looked up past the trees and the flowers, over the worn wooden fence that barely held any purpose, and began to make my way toward the ever shifting horizon."

I wanted to write a response to the picture above. If you like to write, sometimes it's nice to test your abilities and your creativity, I recommend writing a small piece inspired by a photograph, it's a good way to spend a moment or two. I don't have any original photographs by me to share with you, so I thought I would do a little something different. I'm considering sharing an excerpt of a short story I've written (and continuously edit), but I'm pretty skeptical about putting that on the internet for copyright reasons. But anyway, who knows I might share a little excerpt from that soon. 

Things have been hectic with studying and such, so I apologise for the lack of posts/photographs, I haven't had too much time to go out there and take photos but hopefully the next post will be original photos. 

Lots of love, 
Margot Ana
