Five-Hundred Word Challenge 1033: Glide Along

And so evening is now here and I sit here and I write about it being evening. I write as quickly as I can so as to be able to be as fast as I can as I don’t want to be doing this too late into the evening. There are other things to do, such as the dishes.

I want to glide along and float into the afternoon. I want to watch the clouds drift on by on a peaceful, dull and boring day. I just want to sit out there and not think about whatever it is that I may be required to think about. I want to let myself be aimless and flow on freely. I want to be weightless and let myself float on away from all of this and then see where I am carried.

I want to be carried upon a dream and in that dream I want the traction to be as small as possible. I want to be able to glide along the air currents and I want to be taken away. As I lie in the grass and stare up into the sky I want to see colours shift and shapes reveal themselves as something that I recognise, regardless of how vague and detached that recognition may reveal itself as.

I want a cool breeze to touch my face as I lie there and when I get up I want to be able to see some sort of peace and joy and fun and excitement and something very much taking it easy. I want to be able to pull out of my daydream without necessarily being taken violently from it. I want it to fade away in the way that some things do. I want it to linger with a nice, long trail as I move away from wherever it was and wherever it was taking me.

I want to be able to go for a walk and in that going for a walk I want to find myself feeling aimless about where I need to go and how quickly I need to go there. I want to know that I can take it easy and not overwork myself.

I want to be able to carry my camera with me and take photos and let them capture the scenery and capture history in a way that carries a sense of ease about the whole thing, and I can do that. I can do that tomorrow, and maybe I will. However, for now I will write this as quickly as I can for I need to get this done and then some other things done. I can lose myself in thoughts later, but for now this is where the focus lies and in having the focus lie here I write this and I get this done and then I move toward the next thing and let that sit for a while, but perhaps I will relax, but only for a little bit.

The time it took to write five-hundred words: 05:55:48

This came really easy. I think there may have been a bit too much of me in the writing.

Written at home.
