Tale Weaver’s Prompt # 31 – The Light

Hello everyone!

With my favourite holyday x 2 approaching (my son was born on Samhain, it’s as awesome as it gets.) I find myself being illuminated by inspiration, much like we leave the candles burning on our windowsills for the night so the dead can find their way.

I would like you to use this as an inspiration for the prompt this week. I know, its nothing pompous and genius like when Yvew hosts it 🙂

Write about the things that illuminate you, guide you home, which are often out of your control, your reach or are simply the way they are since you know of yourself. Write about those things that shine like they have never been touched a hand, yet they are so sacred.

Have fun, and I am looking forward to reading your entries!
