without choice or wish.
What comes to life before your eyes? What steps up from the imagined depths to stand before you in flesh and blood? Winged, hideous creatures that would sooner eat you as look at you? Or perhaps, some tiny fairy flits about here and there, asking you to follow where it leads. Do the trees whisper your name or does the ocean sing out a haunting song that can only be heard in this world? Does the sun set in brilliant blues and greens or does the moon shine with a deep purple light?
If I fell into a world, without choice or wish to do so, I would hope it to be far from the reality of the one in which I truly live. I would want to have nice long chats with talking animals or discover the secrets that unicorns hold so close. I would like to learn the song of the sea, swim in it's golden waters and sparkle with starlight when I came out. To ramble through moonshine and discover deep, ancient forests, where the very air is enchanted. Forests so dense, the sunlight is filtered through layer upon layer of leaves, giving all that it touches a soft, emerald glow. If I were in such a place, I imagine the music would float about and around and in me, a living thing skipping about here and there, back and forth, in and out. And I imagine, after breathing and tasting the air of such a world, returning to my own may become only a distant memory...
If you fell into a world, without choice or wish to do so, what kind of world would it be? For each time we pick up that particular book, we are falling in and engrossing ourselves in all that it is....is it worth it?
