In 55 Words FD MC Challenge 2017 – Day 291
19th Century born French poet, essayist and philosopher Paul Valéry inspired today’s entry in this challenge. One of his most famous quotes goes as follows:
“The best way to make your dreams come true is to wake up.”
It’s easy to see it for what it is, a call to action as opposed to laziness and procrastination. There’s a time for sleeping and dreaming, and a time to go beyond them, to do the things that need to be done so that we can feel good about ourselves in the end.
The thing is, I always interpret quotes in my own special way when it comes to writing one of these. Given the themes that permeate this site, the fetish side of me saw in it a gateway to the world of trance. The romantic side did the rest. Two more quotes from Paul Valéry ended up being articulated into the flow of the tale, in order to give it the vibe I wanted to convey. One of them is used literally, the other slightly adapted, but I’m not going to refrain from telling you what they are if you don’t mind. Some mystery is in order when there’s love involved, don’t you agree? Enjoy the rest of your day and until tomorrow.
Dreams of Love
“And… wake up!” Clarissa said.
Jonathan blinked, felt his muscles stir once again.
“Was I sleeping?” He asked.
“For a bit. Did it feel good?”
“Very. At times I think and at times I am. Thank you for letting me be.”
“You’re welcome. Shall we be stupid together now?”
“Gladly,” he leaned for a kiss.
