Today’s prompt being “Wealth/Carrying.”
Which got me thinking about leisure moments.
Which got me thinking about how a) such moments, how many of them one gets, would be a measure of wealth indeed for the Gnomes of “Tock the Gnome.”
And b) to have a small book like this, a novel, would not only be dangerous (since recording non-practical information in current Gnomish culture is a big no-no) but also a great symbol of wealth in itself.
(Not that one could flaunt it openly. But still.)
As for “Carrying,” I believe wholeheartedly that Story – tales – carry us ALL through challenging circumstances. So I hope this speaks to that, and I hope you think of your favorite story and send it some love today!
