‘Bon Voyage’ prompt: Vision of the Future

Welcome to Writer’s Island. You will notice the Island drummers and dancers. We are having a ‘bon voyage’ party!!

This is the week we all sail off to new adventures, and the last week that Writer’s Island will be open and offering writing prompts — at least in the foreseeable future. To everyone who has walked the shores of this Island, you have truly enriched my life. You have brought your thoughts and inspiration from many fascinating places in this wide world, to freely and graciously share. It has been a marvelous experience to have been touched by each of you. You will not be forgotten — so I expect to see much dancing and celebration….

Publishing Writer’s Island has been, since 2007, one of my favorite passions, and it is my hope that it will again be able to be such in the future. Keep your hearts and spirits fluid and flowing and may the current of life course freely through you, to carry you in love, to your dreams. In the spirit of dreams and the future, I offer this as the ‘bon voyage’ Writer’s Island prompt.

••>The Week #25 prompt for 2011 is “VISION OF THE FUTURE”. Pardon my sentimentalism, but I have included a piece of art I created quite a number of years ago for my daughter, whose 39th birthday is next week. It was inspired by a photo taken of her and I in 1979, when she was 7. It is entitled: “A Father’s Love” which is filled with dreams of the future.

So it is simple this week, please meditate on your vision of the future, be it for yourself, or loved one(s), or for the world — then share it with us… or let the image above spark your muse. As always, feel free to go in your own direction with your piece this week. Just let yourself go with whatever it is that moves you to write. .

Relax, respond to the prompt when you’re ready — or just leave a comment to say hi, wish you well!


Bon voyage from the Island — may you always have fair skies, calm seas, and a gentle breeze at your back. 😉
