So today is Day 1 of The Daydreamer Challenge, hosted by Caitlin @ The Teen Daydreamer. There’s still time to sign up and it should be a bit of fun, so mosey on over here if you want to sign up! Today there were three photo prompts, with the challenge to write about one of the topics presented…nature, the beach, or blue. My pick is kind of both blue and nature…read on to find out exactly what on earth I’m talking about!
I’ve got a bit of a thing for sunsets or pretty skies. We’ve just redone one of our bathrooms (which was really manky before), and there’s now a lovely big window. The window’s actually exactly the same as before, but it looks much better because before part of it was blocked off, but now you can see the whole width of it and you can get amazing views. Lately, I’ve been looking out at just the right moment and catching some really beautiful sunsets, and I just seem much more aware of the colour of the sky. If you think about it, the sky can be an awful lot of colours: grey, black, cloudy white, blue. But a blue sky can be used to describe a lot more than just a bright blue sky on a sunny day, with barely a single cotton wool cloud in sight.
- There’s the aforementioned oh-look-the-sky’s-blue-lets-go-get-an-ice-cream summer blue
- There’s the oh-bum-it’s-about-to-tip-it-down stormy, greyish blue (although sometimes the levels of blue are so small it’s basically all grey)
- There’s the sun’s-just-gone-down, fifty-shades-of-blue blue
- And there’s the so-deep-it’s-nearly-black, star-studded night blue (although come to think of it, that probably is black)
If I were to draw some impressive meaning from this slightly rambling post, I could say that like a blue sky and the colour blue, a person can be seen in many different lights and have many different sides to them.
Thank you, and goodnight. *drops mic*
This was basically a post telling you how to get loads of profound meaning from nothing. Still, a profound meaning’s a profound meaning, right?
P.S. – Dunno if I can be bothered to do a weekly wrap up this week. May happen tomorrow because y’know, bank holiday weekend and all that. (Yes I am fully aware that’s a rubbish excuse. Don’t judge, bank holidays are made for doing nothing!)
