When I opened up WordPress today to start writing, I realized this was my 100th post. I can’t even believe that, it sure doesn’t feel like a hundred. I suppose I should do something special to mark the occasion but this snuck up on me and I have nothing planned. The reason I bring it up though, is to thank all of you who have supported me through this process. For all of you who have been here since the beginning, you too have reached the 100th post milestone. Sometimes I think you deserve more credit for reading them than I do for having written them. For my newer friends, who knows, maybe we’ll reach post 200 together but in the mean time it’s wonderful having you along for the ride.
Today I’m combining two entries I did for the Single Frame Stories challenges. http://singleframestories.wordpress.com/ Do you remember me talking about them before? Each week, we are given a word or a phrase and have to come up with an image and tell a story. I love these challenges; they inspire me to stretch myself while not limiting me in any way. Any medium will do, processed or not, it doesn’t even have to make sense to anyone but the creator. I haven’t contributed to many, but I know checking in to read other’s entries is the highlight of my blog reading week.
This week’s prompt was “Flight” and we have full freedom to interpret however we like. This is what I came up with.
Last week the prompt was “Found”. I hadn’t intended to participate, I only knew the prompt because it’s given at the start of each week’s collection. I was actually trying to get myself out of that holiday break funk and was hoping exploring and taking landscape pictures might do the trick. I went to the Alchemy Immortalis sims and came across this sheep. Tell me that isn’t a story waiting to be told?
Sadly, the day after I found Henry and taking that picture I learned that 4 of the sims were for sale. http://alchemyimmortalis.blogspot.ca/2013/01/closing-our-cottage-rentals-and-selling.html
I’m really hoping the next owner takes advantage of the option to keep some of the landscaping because it’s a really special place. If somehow it were possible to have a physically relaxing sensation from being an avatar in a virtual world, this would be where it could happen. If the sims aren’t gone already, they will be soon, so I encourage you to visit as soon as you can. If you are in the market for a sim, this might be the deal you are looking for.
