Daily Prompt: From the Collection of the Artist
Posted by michelle w.It’s the year 2113. A major museum is running an exhibition on life and culture as it was in 2013. You’re asked to write an introduction for the show’s brochure. What will it say?Photographers, artists, poets: show us RETROSPCTIVE.
Ladies and gentlemen we are pleased today to offer you a rare glimpse into the past. We are taking you back to 2013. Bear in mind how different our communities were prior to the war of 2080 which resulted in the clean living act.
Our exhibits include cars and trucks with actual gas and diesal powered engines. We also have a motorbike which is a large bike powered by gas as well.
You will be awed to see battery powered devices such as Ipod music makers and Smart Phones. All devices are in working order and we will be providing a short demo.
The exhibit showcases a replica of an actual fast food restaurant including it’s 2013 menus. You may be shocked to to see how people ate prior to the clean living act.
There are many other showcases that will capture you and take you back. Please enjoy and be thankful for our advances.
We are pleased to continue to offer free bike parking. The exhibit costs ten hours of your time donated either to a community garden or bike shop, one hour will be deducted for those using their own bike locks today. Roller skates are allowed on all pedways, please be mindful of those traveling on foot.
Welcome to 2013 and enjoy.
What makes a blog great? What makes you follow a blog or “Like” a post? Photographers, artists, poets: show us GREATNESS.
Blogging is a fabulous opportunity to be yourself and speak honestly. I read and follow all sorts of blogs. I have stumbled across and read blogs that I wouldn’t repeat their subject matter in public but usually if I get caught up in reading a post it is because the writer is genuine and something about them laying their soul bare for all to read resonates with me. It is brave to open yourself up like that and if I feel invited into someone’s heart and thoughts I will like their post and follow their blog, often commenting to let them know how their post made me feel. That being said it’s great when someone who has experience offers their wisdom and what they have learned in a non judgmental or bossy way. I feel I have a lot of life experience. I have learned from mistakes but I think you can share your stories without telling someone that your way is the only way. I write pretty candidly about putting my son up for adoption when I was sixteen and the problems I have endured as a mother and a wife. I appreciate similar posts that draw me into the writer’s world for a couple of moments and make me feel like I am in their living room sharing over a glass of wine. I know that my experiences are mine and my choices might not be for everyone but I feel that my blog is great because I am at a point in my life where I am incredibly happy just being me, which I feel allows me the strength to be honest about my life and my struggles. From the blogs I read I know that everyone deals with their own demons and for some people writing is their therapy. I appreciate you. I will like your post because it struck a chord in me and I will follow your blog because I am interested in your journey.
Honesty, now matter where you are in your journey will help you achieve greatness!
Please comment and invite me to your blog or your friends blog. I am always looking for a genuinely good read! One that makes me laugh, think, feel or gets me caught up in the moment. Happy reading, happy writing!
Nothing makes me feel more like I am present in the moment then when I am close to nature and you can find it everywhere. It’s not what you look at, it’s what you choose to see. The peony above got soaked with weeks of rain but in the morning a little sun peeked through the storm clouds and the petals opened up to meet it and bask in it’s hot splendor. Living things, raised by the unpredictable sun.
I am from Nova Scotia so I have always liked to be near the ocean. The call of the waves lapping against the rocks on the shore sings a special song to my heart. I often crave the solace that sound brings me.
The mountains of my West Coast home beckon me often. Whenever someone I know is visiting the mountains I say “Don’t forget to breathe! ” I drink the mountain air into my soul allowing it to fill my body head to toe. Part of my heart I leave there always and being reunited makes me feel whole.
Surrendering to nature makes everyday trials insignificant. Nature is restless, strong and enduring.
Natures plans are sometimes swift and fierce and others slow and steady.
The challenge is to allow yourself to see and feel the beauty and promises of our natural world. It is in your crowded city days and lazy country afternoons. It is everywhere if you take the time to see it!
