Other Worlds

The suggested music for viewing this sketch is King Harvest’s Dancing in the Moonlight. The suggested activity is, of course, dancing.

Probably my all time favorite line was said by Jake Chambers in Stephen King’s (hereafter referred to as SteKi) The Gunslinger.

Jakes said

Go then, there are other worlds than these.

during a terrible moment in the series. A moment that caused me much pain in the reading. A moment that resonated with truth I had never considered. A moment, like all good moments in reading, in which the foundation of my world shifted. The truth of that moment endures as an empty page, as a blank canvas, as a song unsung for my everyday life. I won’t try to illustrate the line as I feel SteKi has done a fine job using words alone and doesn’t need my help.

The written world is powerful. Whether fiction or non-fiction, words build pictures in our minds. I’ve enjoyed playing along with #worldwatercolorgroup in September, and #inktober in, well, Inktober. I’ve liked it so much that I want to continue committing to sketching from a theme, nearly every day. The new theme will be words I’m seeing, hearing, reading. The rules are simple, nearly every day I’ll do a sketch inspired by Words. If there are words in your head that must be shared with the world, I invite you to play along.
