Imagine

Daily Prompt: Imagine All the People

by michelle w. on September 5, 2013

The next time you’re in a public place — a coffeehouse, a park, a store — observe the people around you. Pick a person, a couple, or a group, and imagine what their lives might be like.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us IMAGINE.

I am not feeling good today. After having a tooth extracted on Monday, I am having a session of good old Neuralgia. The inflammation of a nerve bundle in my face, and it hurts like hell… So I am in no mood to even talk today.  It hurts too much… so, I am going to go with the Photo Challenge- Imagine…

  •  Imagine I did not feel any pain today…
  •  Imagine the Church Fete of this weekend is already finished, and it was a huge success…
  •  Imagine I could pack my Bike, or Pick-up on Monday, and just leave for the sea. Any sea. The nearest one. The furthest one…

A few years ago I was invited to Kareedouw on Route 62 for an interview. As I sat waiting for my turn to go before the panel, I drove the few kilometers to the sea. It is a wild coastline there. I saw this photo today in my archives and started imagining- maybe there is some big fish in places like this…

IMG_0039Maybe it would not have been so easy. Next to the church is the grave of John Balthazar Vorster, one of South Africa’s Prime Ministers during 1978-1979… dark days in our history…

  • Imagine what South Africa could have been without all the negative politics. ( or ANY country for that matter… 🙂 )
  • Imagine a world where people really loved one another
  •  Imagine a world where every child was safe…
  •  Imagine a world where every woman was loved and respected…
  •  Imagine it is time for some more pain medication… they say in Wikipedia some marijuana would help for the neuralgy– I can’t begin to imagine where to buy some, even though most school children know…
  •  Imagine I did not just publish such a lot of crap…
