‘What’s Walancha?’ Asked the English student.
‘What do you mean by what’s Walancha?’
‘ Well, this prompt setter M, has given a cue for a prompt including the word Walancha. ‘The Window to Walancha.’
Mr Sampson wiped his forehead, actually his whole head was a shiny dome, since his wife had shaved all his hair off during a dream.
‘Walancha,’ he mused, you say there’s a window involved?’
I can’t say I’ve come across this word. It sounds just like a place I once knew in the Himalayas. Tibetan monks used a high resolution mirror to reflect the sun into the eyes of their initiates. Thus inducing a state of mind known as Walancha.’
‘Oh!’ Exclaimed the student ‘Walancha is an altered state of consciousness that can only be reached by getting dazzled.’
‘Exactly!’ Sampson replied.

  1. Such a creative interpretation of Walancha. 😉 It’s always fun for me to see what people will do with my random made up words. I think they often make the best prompts because they force our minds to think outside of the box. I guess I need to give this one a go and see what I can come up with too. Anyway, great job, and I’m looking forward to reading more from you.

    • Thanks ~M, I’m enjoying responding to your prompts. Thanks for taking the time to set them and encouraging my creative urges. It:s a great exercise in casting the thoughts into so many different directions.

      • You’re most welcome John. I’ve already got a bunch ready for July. I try to write them down as they come to me throughout the month. Sometimes my family helps me too. We’re always saying to each other… “Now that would make a great prompt!” 😉
