Life’s a Candy Store
You get to be a 6-year-old kid again for one day and one day only — plan your perfect 24 hours. Where do you go, what do you do, and with whom?

Eighteen
Right now I am eighteen years old and before I start answering this question, I just want to make clear that generally, I wouldn’t want to be any younger than I am now. Every day I get older, I realize more and more of what is happening around me, and of what is happening inside me.

– William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet

Over time, the moon has been a mystery to mankind and a source of wonder and imagination. Very often she plays an important part in religions. Today I have for you a selection of quotes, poems and artwork inspired by the moon.

Prompts #7 – From the Top

Every day, The Daily Post posts a prompt on their website – a situation or little idea you can use as inspiration to write. Yesterday’s prompt was from the top, and this is my interpretation.

From the Top
If you had the chance to be reborn, would you choose to return as your present self, or would opt for a fresh start? Tell us about what motivates your choice.

If I had the chance to be reborn, I would choose to be reborn as a different person. I hope I live a long life, so I don’t feel the need to live again as the same person. It’s not that I am unhappy with who I am now, but why would I want to be the same person twice? Wouldn’t that be boring?
