Winnie! Enjoy Your Day You Old Bear You!

I read that today is Winnie-the-Pooh Day.  If it isn’t, too bad, it is here.  I have been a big fan since I was little.  Winnie was on the TV and I loved those cartoons. I would watch them every time they came on.  I loved him getting stuck in the bee hive, in rabbit’s house (same episode), playing in the rain, and all the others.  Didn’t like the movie or the newer stuff near as much, but I am older and it was different artists and different voices.

Winnie filled my life.  I had (may still have) a book called “The Tao of Pooh”.  I do have many Winnie stuffies of different sizes.  In fact, when my daughter and son-in-law got their dog, Winnie, I gave her a Winnie stuffie and she slept with it!  I did the same for the next dog, Rue (after Roo in Winnie). and the dog loves the stuffie, too.

That old bear was kinda a friend to me back then, along with a lot of other fantasy people and characters.  I enjoyed that part of my life.  It was my getaway and hideout when the world got to me (which was very often then).  Now, I just enjoy memories and new friends, living and fantasy.  What’s life without imagination?  – boring.

Namaste,

Scott

 

From Tree to Shining Tree – Friday Fictioneers

Friday Fictioneers – a wonderful collection of a photo-based 100 word story.  >HERE<

Picture Courtesy of Sandra Cook.

It was nearly dark, that weird time when shadows played with the minds.
The elder tree did not mind the games, but had not time at the moment.  He had a calling.

The open knothole, turned up, began to glow and a pale yellow light shot forth to the clouds.
The beam bounced off clouds, sailed from any surface, striking all other trees who responded in kind.

Slowly, they started to move, ripping their roots from the ground. Their many legs now carried them faster and faster across landscapes, crushing homes and people in their wake.

The invasion had begun…finally.

“Offering”

Finality

Scott L Vannatter – January 14, 2015

Jeckland raised her hands toward the heavens and cited the lines from the ritual she had studied for several months.

“I offer myself to the realms as a sacrifice to that which on my life I have pledged.”

The air grew still then, almost like a breath, the clouds opened up and shimmering, whirling bands of starry lights cascaded from the center, opening up and engulfing the figure of the woman, now so tiny in respect to the magnificence of the scene.

Her body began to blur, taking on the aspect of a ghost and, within minutes, she vanished entirely, the clouds drew up, and all became still once more.

After a slight hesitation, the earth at the center of where Jeckland had stood only moments before exploded into light; the illumination spread to all parts of the globe, wiping pollution, trash, and all manner of planetary desecration clean, giving the Earth a new and glorious start.

The Meeting

By Scott L Vannatter – 100 Words

The gull brushed the other’s beak with her claw.  They flew together for hours.  A love had been building and needed release, a safe release.  Side by side, coasting on the breeze, they sounded out their adoration for each other as only flying birds can.

As dusk crept in, they landed, touched, and went their separate ways.  It was not until she arrived at home that Carreye shifted to her mortal form and put her hidden clothes back on before going into the house.

“Where have you been, Dear?” Auger stated from his chair.

“To the store.” Simple and easy.

Limb from Limb

“See, Daddy, there are gnomes and trolls and hobbits and…” Sarah squealed with delight.

Ted looked at the huge tree.  It had been awhile since he had used his imagination enough to “see” something like the creatures Sarah saw in the branches and limbs.  He looked harder, squinting a bit.  He actually sweated with effort for about five minutes before shrugging.

“Sorry, Sweetheart, I just don’t see them there.”

“Maybe I can help?”  The wooden gnome coughed loudly to the staring father.

Sarah clapped her hands and squealed again, even as her father hit the ground in a dead faint.
