Lean against… and listen ~ Out there

February 2019
Once I have the rest of my 2311 posts sorted out I am looking forward to writing some new posts. Yes, I know I could write them anyway but currently, I want to get this “old” stuff done.
August 2014
It hardly ever happens that I am bored in my lunch break at work because I mostly have a good book with me or I check my emails. Yesterday though hardly anyone wrote to me and I did not feel like reading.
Therefore, I leaned against the back of a horribly green plastic chair, grabbed my mobile, opened a new note and started writing…

Lean against… and listen

I quote Kasey Mathews from the WANA group “Write to heal” for this writing prompt:
With paper and pen, or computer handy, lean back in your chair, or against the wall, or a sofa etc., close your eyes and imagine you are sitting under a large tree with your back resting against the trunk. On the other side of the tree, a Storyteller has come to sit down and also rest against the tree trunk. With eyes still closed, just listen. Wait for the Storyteller to begin his or her story. When you hear it begin, simply write down all that you hear. “

Description for visually impaired readers: light blue sky in background. Huge white could towards middle of image and dark grey cloud over it on top left side.

What is out there? 
What is behind those white clouds, that autumn blue sky? What is behind the moon,  Mars or even Venus? What is behind our milky way and our universe?
There can’t be nothing. Well, maybe there is, it is just that my little brain cannot imagine it.
How does nothingness look like, feel like, smell and taste like? What is nothing?
The image that appears in my inner eye is that of total blackness, but that is still something. Its black of some sort. Probably just lack of light.
 I imagine loneliness, but that is something as well. It is the lack of company.
I can’t imagine nothingness and that is why I think there must be something out there.
Maybe a similar world than ours. Just a lot more human maybe. Not so war-torn and destructive. Maybe full of creativity and magic. But looking back from that universe towards ours: They might feel the same.”
Do you think I should start eating something different????? 😉
