I am absolutely loving the writing prompts from Sarah Elizabeth Moore …
I am watching The Great British Bake Off Right Now (incase you are wondering why I am not reading your posts)…but I am working on this post at the same time because it is such a great prompt. I am just really chuffed to be actually publishing a post in response to one of her prompts on the day that it is linked to!
Whenever I hear the manifesto of a political party coming up to the time of an election, I realize I have a much more hopeful, cheerier idea of the kind of world I would like to live in than most politicians. I know I have a few photos already of what I envision for the whole earth to be like one day. But I just typed into google search engine the word that I guess sums up what I want for you and me and everyone else on the planet:
…and I was thrilled with the gorgeous photos and pictures that appeared.
Now, before you cast your eyes over these pictures, please don’t think I envision us all lying in hammocks all day being served cocktails by men in skimpy clothing. Oh no no no!
My idea of paradise is cultivating and landscaping this entire earth so that every part of it is as beautiful as the glimpses of paradise that we see in travel brochures. Now that means work.
But what wonderful work, can you imagine if we were one huge international workforce who had been assigned the task of making this whole earth the way it should be. We work together to make sure everyone had a satisfactory home and we would be learning all sorts of skills, construction, making our own furniture and clothes and tools. Learning to cultivate our own crops and veggies. Learning how to care for animals properly. Just really truly living the way everything inside tells me we are supposed to be living.
No war, no crime, no disease, no grief, no violence, no rasicm, no suffering…just joy and peace. I mentioned this before….I have Liverpool roots, but am no relation to John Lennon. However…I will steal his lines:
“You may say that I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one!”
When I close my eyes, this is the world I would just love to see:
And I would love for you and yours to be able to enjoy this forever!
