What Fantasy Forgets


The modern writer
has her hands full
trying to understand,
describe,
and then make credible
much of reality.

It stupefies,
it infuriates,
and finally it is even
a kind of embarrassment
to one's own meager
imagination.

The actuality
is continually outdoing
our talents.

Modern culture
tosses up figures
almost daily
that are the envy
of any novelist.

Do you ever feel
you're in a high-stakes race
against reality?

A lot of course depends upon why you write. Some write to make sense of reality. Some to create an alternate reality. People read for much the same basic reasons as well.

Of course the best writing is a mixture of the two, where a reality is created that is more authentic and more true than what it is based upon.

Hello Ladies ... I saw your post on Mz Hunny's blog and thought I'd stop by and say a big "Hi Ya'll" from Kentucky. I love your handle name "The Cliticals" ...that's awesome! Sounds Yummy...

Stop by my blog when you get a chance. I write to share some of my AdultFriendFinder adventures and to try to make some sort of sense out of things that happen that are beyond my mortal comprehension. But I try anyway...

{{ Hugs to Ya Both }}

What we call
Reality
is nothing but our limited
view of Limitless.

We live in a sea of
infinite possibility
of boundless energy.

We can bob on the surface
and be moved
about by the currents,
barely aware of the power around us.

We can try to fight the energy
and be tumbled and crushed
in the undertow for our arogance.

Or we can learn the flow
and ride the waves.
Effortlessly!
With exhilaration!

But we cannot stop the waves
or win a race against them!

    Quoting VenusDiaries:
    Reality and Creativity mix like oil and water.
Couldn't have said it better myself.
