If only it is that easy to make our dreams come true

I came across this writing prompt in another platform so I thought of giving it a try. It's actually a contest where you post a minimum of three photos and talk about it. Make a story about it. This is to encourage being original. Well, that is what we all aim for, isn't it? We should aim to be original always in every platform that we are in like here in read.

What I like about photography is that you can be creative with it as photography per se but at the same time you can make let your imagination wander and wonder about the story you can create out of a picture. A picture paints a thousand words, so they say and it is true.

Different perspective, different angles give different outcomes.

Much like in life. Sometimes we have to see things in a different light to realize that it is not so bad after all. Sometimes we have to focus on particular things or maybe see the bigger picture in order for us to come to a better understanding.

Here is my entry to that prompt.

Note that this was originally posted here Escape from Reality.

I recently went for a walk where the Tower of Peace was located. This is located in a secluded area, safe from the public eye. It's because you are surrounded by trees. The tower is located in the middle of them all. You can hear the busy roads surrounding this little park but it gives you an escape from reality.

You can read more about that here.

What made me come to this place is to spend some time with nature even for just a while.

Where do you draw the line between dream and reality? For dreamers, every waking hour is a chance to dream and create. All around us there are beautiful things we can take inspiration from. Fiction depicts life or is it the other way around?

We like to live the life that we see in movies, we read in books. We fell in love in being love or the thought of being in love. Because of our past experiences - hurt, lost, pain, death, we wanted nothing of that. Rather, we wanted a life free from those. Thus, we dream.

In this photo, the tower is reflected in the puddle of water that collected from the rainy weeks we have had these past days. I was imagining of plunging myself into it and see what would I see on the other side. Is it reality or fantasy?

Would you do it?

It made me think that if I was able to go into the puddle of other dimension, where would it take me? Would it take me to a world of my subconscious or would it take me to a world that I wanted or would it be something else - a reality that is not mine but of someone else's.

Would I like it?

Will it be as clear as what it reflects?

I am writing this with full of questions. I don't even know where this will lead.

One thing is clear in nature. Be it great or small, it's a different world out there.

I used to dream of being small, tiny like these lichens/moss. I used to think there'd be fairies and dwarves, little people among these or some other kind of creatures maybe from the minds of Tolkien or Anderson or King or maybe creatures that have never been thought of or imagined or revealed. A new discovery!

Maybe it is a world free from politics, from suffering, from greed. However, it is still part of this world and we are bound to be doomed because of what us humans do. We are all connected from small things to great things, the air we breath, the land we farm, the water we drink. Humans consume and consume but what they give back is waste and destruction.

Sad reality. It's a reality I have to go back to.

I was at the Tower of Peace but where is peace? Only in figment of our imagination. Elusive. We can feel it like the wind but we can't see it.

Can we dream and hope what will be our reality and hopefully find peace?

I always clamor for peace everyday of our lives. Nothing beats peace in life. I also believe that peace is underrated. Embracing peace in the world will be the first thing to happen to the world. Let's embrace peace!!!

I really love your point of view here. Living our life is not easy, there are a lot of things that we need to consider if we want peace and contentment in life. I am just hoping that everyone can find happiness and peace in this world of chaos and injustice.

Peace of dreaming, but where is exactly the peace? I used to say that peace is contentment, but does contentment really exist? I also have lots of questions in mind, most specially if I am dreaming.

Anyway nakakaamaze ang mga photos 😍.

A lot of times it is our karma and a lot of times we have mental burden of the parents and society that kind of restricts us into limiting our success. Dreams take more energy to come true than we can anticipate.

I can understand you. It's really hard to face the reality, the reason why sometimes I distract myself into something else. I'm so scared of growing up, wondering if I would make it.

The peace can find only in our heart.

let your imagination wander and wonder about the story you can create out of a picture. This one is really true! Lupit ng utak natin lee nho. Pero minsan din di gumagana lalo na pg may prblma diba.

It is hard to find peace even in ourselves for we are immense in reaching each of our dreams, this can give us a sense of panic, and haste, jealousy and many more. How could someone say they peacefully sleeping when suddenly a scary dream disturbed their slumber? The truth is I don't know where to find peace in this struggling world anymore lol.
