Postcard Fiction: Dreaming is Free


Jane Dougherty’s microfiction challenge #15, “Freedom”, was posted way back in September.  I liked the painting by Ilya Repin (below) so much that I did it twice.  Above is the first response.



In the middle of the ocean
time fades into mystery
a journey illuminated
by movement translated into form.
What lies beneath this dream?

    This must be one of your best ones yet! I love the abandon of it. It was certainly worth waiting for—thank you!

      I hope you have not given up prompting us entirely…

        Funny you should ask. While I was looking for a picture of my Hildr, I found a gorgeous prompt painting. I wanted to take a bit of a step back from the blog commitment because I’ve not been on tip top form and there’s a lot going on here. But I’m getting to the end of another novel and then the depression will set in because I won’t know what to do with it. Blogging prompts might be the answer. Take my mind off literary rejections anyway 🙂

    Your interpretations of different pieces are always amazing! Often, I like yours better than the original.

    At the beginning of January, Jacob at Jaywalks nominated us for a Unique Blogger Award. I told him we would get to his questions eventually…
    Which one word do you think best describes your blog? Eclectic
    Is there a post you’re particularly proud of and would like to reshare?
    I picked this one, “Dreaming is Free” because I love the painting that inspired it and it’s one of my favorite postcard fiction collages.
    Have you any grand goals for your blog/practice this year?
    This is a really apt question for me. I would like to learn to manage my time better, and find a balance between doing the blog and getting work done—not just my art, but all that I want and need to do in my life.
    Thanks Jacob! You can enjoy his bursts of creativity here:
