CarolCooks2…#bloganuary 2022…Interview a fictional character.

Day 22 of #bloganuary…Today’s prompt is… Interview a fictional character.

So far with these challenges, I have managed ok…I think …but interview a fictional character not in my remit today so I am going to pass on that one and instead I am going to leave you with something I wrote a long time ago…Willow the-Wisp…

Willow the Wisp…by Carol Taylor.

Sitting,  flicking through FB is my way of keeping in touch with family and friends from afar. I clicked like, I commented.  Suddenly like a blast from the past, a face appeared: my heart skipped a beat and a tear, unbidden trickled down my face. The outlines were blurred but still …. I felt that familiar stirring from within and I started to shake from the tips of my fingers to my toes.

My thoughts turned to him. The only person who had the power to make my bones turn to jelly.

I suppose the unexpected encounter…just a picture … my guard had dropped or just perhaps my need for someone. If I allowed my thoughts and myself to turn to him then I had to attempt to find some modicum of com­mon ground in the relationship aside from raw, physical sex.

Was that possible?

He was like Willow the Wisp invading my very being, catching me unawares.

My first love and my last. “A bit dramatic” I hear myself saying.

The End!

CarolCooks2…#bloganuary 2022…If you could, what year would you time travel to and why?

Day 20 of #bloganuary…Today’s prompt is…  If you could, what year would you time travel to and why?

Would I want to fast forward to the year 2025…only 3 years but it would give me the answers to questions that I don’t want to know… I would rather wait and see…

My option is back to the past but where to?…

Do I go back to the 1930s to when my mother and father were born that could be lovely …or to see Elvis…or maybe Buddy Holly…Although a year younger than Elvis, Buddy Holly got started in professional music before Elvis. Around 1951, when Buddy was 15 years old, he started jamming with another Lubbock musician, Jack Neal.

Buddy Holly produced some of the most distinctive and influential work in rock music. … With hits such as “Peggy Sue” and “That’ll Be the Day,” Holly was a rising star when a tragic plane crash struck him down in 1959 at age 22.

But no as most of that info I can get online and listen to docu’s and the music…

No! I think I would love to go back to 1815 and be a fine lady…Why ..not because I am a pretty dress type of person but to be one for a day and have a white horse…I’m sure I will be happy to come back to this time but just for a day…

To be pampered and wear pretty dresses and have someone do my hair and makeup to ride in a horse and carriage go shopping for fine silks for a dress or three…

Go downstairs and see what’s cooking for dinner and how…now that would be cool…so yes, 1815 here I come…

CarolCooks2…#bloganuary 2022…What is a superpower you’d love to have?

Day 17 of #bloganuary…Today’s prompt ….What is a superpower you’d love to have?

There are the bog-standard answers that everyone gives cure this cure that, no more hunger in the world, no more wars, for everyone to practise whatever religion they want BUT respect the religion that your neighbour chooses, I could rattle on and wish to live in a perfect world with no trouble and strife…

But even in the Garden of Eden….trouble brewed…

We are human…we err…we are suspicious of perfection…personally I’ll pass on the superpower and leave that to someone else…

Have a lovely day… be kind…smile at everyone you meet…YOU will make someones day x
