I wake up in a new place, I can feel it, the damp, soft earth under my feet as I get up. I’m probably in a field, I can feel an unobstructed cool wind in my back and ruffling my hair. I raise my head and enjoy the morning. It feels like morning. As I didn’t know where I was, I figured I might as well try to find out. And then I wondered was I alone? So I asked: “Hello? Is anyone there?”
But after some waiting I decided no one was, or if they were they were either deaf or didn’t want to be found. I hoped they weren’t deaf and just sitting around. It would be very problematic if I met someone deaf. Or mute. It would be extremely embarrassing.
I decided to go against the wind so that any smells could come to me and further inform me of my surroundings. The land is roughly even though a little on the hilly side I discover while walking. The sound came first: falling water, there was a waterfall, and so, a river where I could drink. I walked carefully towards the sound, knowing that if there was a waterfall tree would be rocks around it. When I got there I stumbled on a step I had miscalculated and fell straight into the water but it was after the waterfall and rather shallow at this point. It was a nice day and the water wasn’t particularly cold so I sat and let it flow over me. For the second time in a long time I could just enjoy the moment with no one around to take pity of me and tell me I couldn’t see beauty. Maybe I can’t, but I can feel it and I think it’s wonderful. People can sometimes rely on their sight too much. I don’t have that problem and I never will…
Prompted by DragonSpark: sound earth flow
I meant to post this yesterday but wordpress was being annoying and we had an argument (it sat there while I swore at it), after which it wouldn’t work. I have a feeling I may have overreacted. Then I got shouted at for making cookies at the wrong time and then DragonSpark was degrading himself and unfortunately it just wasn’t the right time and it was late so I’m sorry.
So here’s what I tried to upload three times already -_-
Oh and I’ll be leaving for a fun week of geology in the alps! *super sarcastic* so I won’t get to link anything for the speakeasy but I might ask DragonSpark to so I might participate or I might not. I’ll try to write something though.
