Starlight Cove

Six Sentence Sunday #9

 

 

 

Last week Tori had just arrived home. Otis met her at the ferry in his taxi cab. As Tori was driving the taxi up Main Street, Mayor Carver jumped out in front of her wearing a miner’s hat.

 

Tori rolled down the window and heard chirping before she uttered a word.

“New peeps.” Otis said.

Not exactly certain why hearing those words out of Otis’s mouth felt uncomfortable, Tori giggled. “I don’t see any people Otis.” He really did need to wear his glasses.

“Not people, Satori. George and Gracie hatched a clutch of peeps just last week.”

A little line of fuzzy yellow balls stretched across the road following behind one of the wild chickens that called Starlight Cove home. Gracie’s copper feathers glowed in Janine’s headlights as she led her kids across the road. Other towns had stray alley cats, this place had stray chickens and the occasional stray egg.

Mythic Monday ~ Portals

 

 

 

What images stir in your imagination when you think of portals? You’ve met several in childhood, I’m sure. The magical doorway to another place, another time or quite possibly another dimension. A land of mysticism, wonder, and adventure, far away from the mundane world.

By this definition alone, a portal can be the dream you float into when you close your eyes at night. The book you stay up late with, hypnotized by its magic, eagerly turning the page. It can even be the heart of someone you love. They are energetic portals to another realm.

Childhood literature abounds with physical ‘doorways’ into another world. Alice had the rabbit hole. Mike and Sully had a closet door. There is also the famous train platform in London! No muggle could ever walk through it.

My novel’s portal can only be unlocked by the siren’s song. What happens when the siren doesn’t believe in magic any longer? That is the hurdle I’m working with as I write.

Long ago, Native Americans and Aborigine peoples believed that dark caves were portals that led into the land of the Gods.

Portals are a valuable tool. They allow our imagination to soar and believe anything is possible. Through them we can meet interesting new people, visit extraordinary worlds, and return to the mundane world a new person.

What is your favorite portal? That ‘thing’ that whisks you away from the ordinary and mundane to the land of possibilities…

How did it change you?

Six Sentence Sunday #6

 

 

 

Recap: Last week Satori had just arrived in Starlight Cove to find her missing mother.

Here is this weeks six 🙂

Out of the mists, the familiar yellow curves of Janine came into focus. Otis Meriwether was bent over her, buffing the curves of his beloved taxi. Janine looked like she was ready to whisk Tori away to a speakeasy. Some things never change. Otis had been driving that taxi since cars landed on the island.

“Hello Otis.”
