100 Word Challenge

AND WITH A SPECIAL VIDEO ACCOMPANIMENT

I wanted to write but not in the directly melancholy and pitful way I have been... at least not directly. A Stan Lee no-prize to anyone who recognizes the words!

You will have to click here to watch the video that visualizes the mood.

THE DIFFERENCE IN THE THINGS WE NEED AND WHAT WE RECIEVE

Awakened by the lapping of the endless waves against the hull of my light catamaran blistered by the sun of a cloudless sky, I look at my tattered sails contemplating the isle ahead. Is it near or is it far? Or perhaps another illusion? "We shall see," I say to no one in particular.

Still content that I am heard all the same. Adjusting the rudder with one hand as I paddling with the other, I set off towards what even if there, I am left quite far hope, outside busy sea lanes and shipping corridors… and therefore, truly lost.

Man, you gotta find something to tickle your funny.

Hope your mood is lighter and that you've found a secure island.
