Your turn Saturday!

Life has been hectic around the Russell Castle this week with my two sons finishing up finals at college and settling back into their "home" digs for the summer and my daughter graduating from high school soon. We've been dashing hither and yon which hasn't left a whole lot of time for writing or sleeping or blogging. So I decided that today, it was your turn to pull out your creativity and let us here at the Chatelaines see what you've got.

I'm posting three pictures. Which is the most evocative for you? And can you come up with a short "blurb" maybe 100 words or so that tells us all a story. Be as creative as you like . . .
Picture #1: In a land long ago and far, far away . . .

This picture feels like mystery and magic to me . . . what's it saying to you?

Picture #2: I could have danced all night . . .

Dancing with the Stars, anyone?

Picture #3: The Touch of Midas . . .

Futuristic or a Madri Gras parade?

Now, it's your turn to wrtie your blurb in the comments section. The winner of the most "creative" blurb, as judged by a nonpartial panel of judges (or a random number drawn), will receive a $10 Starbucks card to celebrate your brilliance.
Have fun, and good luck!

I LOVE audience participation - thanks! I chose the first picture:

At least here, there was light, if nowhere else in her dark world. At least here was freedom, hope and life. She resolved to cherish every second that she was alone. They may be able to take it all away in a moment, but not this moment.

She sat by the water’s edge and allowed the rapids to hypnotize her. Ever changing. White. Blue. Silver. The water showed no regard to obstacles, but powered forward, over and through.

As if the water had called her, she removed her white shoes and dipped a toe in the cold river. Soon, both feet dangled. Forgetting about her silk, designer dress, she laid back in the dewy grass and closed her eyes. She breathed in her momentary freedom and let the wind remove the white veil that covered her face.

I picked the second picture.

Keep it up, Twinkletoes. Did you dip me low enough, Alfred? Yikes, already! You're all but forcing me into the arms of my old lover, Gunnar, the hunky chiropractor!

Way to go, April! Very nice.

Diana, you are hysterical!

Great job April, this one would be hard to beat!
