Weekly Photo Challenge: Dreaming

This week’s WordPress challenge for this week: Share a photo that makes you DREAM!

Welcome to Narnia!

“It is as hard to explain how this sunlit land was different from the old Narnia as it would be to tell you how the fruits of that country taste. Perhaps you will get some idea of it if you think like this. You may have been in a room in which there was a window that looked out on a lovely bay of the sea or a green valley that wound away among mountains. And in the wall of that room opposite to the window there may have been a looking-glass. And as you turned away from the window you suddenly caught sight of that sea or that valley, all over again, in the looking glass. And the sea in the mirror, or the valley in the mirror, were in one sense just the same as the real ones: yet at the same time they were somehow different – deeper, more wonderful, more like places in a story: in a story you have never heard but very much want to know. The difference between the old Narnia and the new Narnia was like that. The new one was a deeper country: every rock and flower and blade of grass looked as if it meant more.”
― C.S. Lewis, The Chronicles of Narnia

Munchkin: Follow the yellow brick road, follow the yellow brick road, follow follow follow follow follow the yellow brick road.

Wicked Witch of the West: And now, my beauties, something with poison in it, I think. With poison in it, but attractive to the eye, and soothing to the smell.

Wicked Witch of the West: Poppies… Poppies. Poppies will put them to sleep. Sleeeeep. Now they’ll sleeeeep!

Dorothy: Oh, please! Please, sir! I’ve got to see the Wizard! The Good Witch of the North sent me!
Guardian of the Emerald City Gates: Prove it!
Scarecrow: She’s wearing the ruby slippers she gave her.
Guardian of the Emerald City Gates: Oh, so she is! Well, bust my buttons! Why didn’t you say that in the first place? That’s a horse of a different color! Come on in!

Dorothy: Oh, but anyway, Toto, we’re home. Home! And this is my room, and you’re all here. And I’m not gonna leave here ever, ever again, because I love you all, and – oh, Auntie Em – there’s no place like home!

What kinds of things make you dream? 🙂

Weekly Photo Challenge: Movement #3

Okay, I promise this will be my last post for the weekly photo challenge. 🙂 This time I’m including photos that are absolutely still, but imply movement, at least to me. Maybe I just have a good imagination!

If you squint your eyes, don’t the lines in the pavement look like a dancer with her arms up in the air? 🙂 She is moving wildly!

“And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.”  ― Friedrich Nietzsche

This one is a photo of a journal cover I made with polymer clay (and a hot wheel car). It’s called “Life in the Fast Lane.” I loved the contrast of ideas… a journal that you write in by hand, with a race car. Again, do you see the implied movement? 🙂

You win some, you lose some, you wreck some. – Dale Ernhardt Sr.

“There is more to life than simply increasing its speed.”  ― Mahatma Gandhi

Okay, enough imagination on my end. 🙂 What do you think?

Here are my other two challenges for movement:
