Phantastes by: George MacDonald

Phantastes by George MacDonald is so fun and imaginative I can’t stop reading it. It’s about a man who ends up in Fairyland and wanders in and out of trouble. C.S. Lewis claims this is one of his childhood favorites. It is quite inspirational for me and even more so for some of the pieces I’m working on.  I have a thing for older literature so a book published in 1858 is perfect for me.

Here’s a link if you’d like to check it out.

 

 

Happy Hump Day Everyone

Purple Hat

Welcomed by the man with the tall purple hat  

I could do nothing but freeze and fall back

The wizzies wanged and the scared babies screamed

This place is a real life dark day dream.

Full of thinking thinkers and mind tinkers

I think I’ve done it, some one thing rightly,

Writing writing writing all nightly

Give me a Dumdum to suck while the rest

strive so eagerly to reach their best

But here, yes here, this is where it’s obtained

my life will never

ever

be the same.
