100 Word Challenge: Search

When I dream, I dream big. Wes Anderson, over-the-top visuals, filled with eclectic characters, and elaborate scenery kind of productions. I’ve even had what I consider prophetic dreams on a few, rare occasions. So, when I dream of the same thing, not the same story line, but the same place or event, I pay attention.

I’ve had a few of those “pay attention” sort of dreams recently. They involve a library – a very large, very ornate, very venerable institution. The same library has been the backdrop for these dreams, yet they aren’t connected to each other. It’s the venue that’s constant. It’s the same library each time.

That has to mean something, right? It was worth a Google.

According to several dream interpretation websites, dreaming of a library signifies a “search for knowledge,” and is considered a good omen.

If I could only find the card catalogue, I might be able to figure out what I’m looking for in these dreams.

“Sometimes I’m confused by what I think is obvious, but what I think is obvious obviously isn’t obvious.” ~ Michael Stipe

This week’s word is:

Search

Using “search” for inspiration, write 100 Words – no more, no less. You can either use the word, or any form of the word, as one of your 100, or it can be implied. Then, add a link back here from your post (A pingback is like bread crumbs, it helps your readers find the other 100 Word stories, and it’s nice to share.), and add your story to the Mister Linky list. If you don’t have a blog, you can leave your submission in the comment section, or as a Facebook status post. Remember to keep spreading the love with supportive comments for your fellow wordsters.

  1. I linked up. For the first time, with any link-up or prompt, in a long time. Thank you for providing the inspiration.

        1. Not a problem, that’s something a lot of new participants are not sure what to do. Glad you found us, and I hope you come back soon. A new prompt goes up each Wednesday.

  4. It’d be awesome to dream in a library! Here’s my entry: https://fictiontrials.wordpress.com/2016/04/22/search/

    Not sure why the pingbacks aren’t working – I haven’t changed anything in my settings.

    1. I’m not sure what’s happening either. Your ping for this entry came through fine, but the last couple didn’t. Glad you’re here regardless.
