#writeout compass 17
Round we go
Determined we seek
I write science fantasy. I believe in fairies. I’ve seen them sparkle in a dance in the shadows of my sycamore; I know they hide in the frosty tips of evergreens in the canyon. So when I think of a compass, it’s findings and search are for so much more than cardinal directions:
Fire, Wind, Water, Earth.
Sun, Moon, Earth, Air.
Warmth, Hydration, Sustenance, Shelter.
Friend, Elder, Enemy, Totem.
Joy, Determination, Steadfastness, Contemplation.
Each being should have their own compass as a guide when life just seems not quite right.
