Swing to the Ledge and Wait for Dragons (A Naturally Trippy SoCS Ramble)


This might be from Pixabay. Who knows?

“If you’re at the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.” So goes the encouraging encouragement.

If the rope is taut, it might be hard to tie a knot. But I guess it’s supposed to be more figurative than literal. I’ve never been good at tying fancy knots. I have to practice stuff like that over and over to learn it. More than the average person. But I did learn to tie a figure 8 knot on a bite.

I may have been a basket weaver in a former life since I like to make wreaths out of vines, but don’t do much after that. Maybe glue on a few shells and stick one of my mermaids in it, like this.

The most I’ve done with a wreath.

But getting back to being at the end of your rope. How about swinging? Yeah! Swing. Don’t ask me how to start. Let’s put a cliff in there to push off of. Swing around to a ledge, pull up on a root or a tree. Camp out on the ledge. Eat some grubs. Oh NO! I can’t do that, I’m vegan. Good thing you can make up whatever you want in the Stream of Consciousness.

There must be something to eat on the ledge besides grubs…. Looking around….. Mushrooms!

I like mushrooms, but never did the trippy kind. Just being on a ledge eating any kind of mushroom would be trippy. What would be even more trippy would be if one of those big bird-like creatures from AVATAR came a long and gave me a ride. But wait! I’m afraid of heights! But no, this is the stream of consciousness, and I can be brave and get over it.

Dang. They’re not birds. They’re DRAGONS! Youtube doesn’t want to show the video on this post. But maybe you can see it by clicking HERE.

If you didn’t see the movie Avatar, the color is one of the most amazing things. The dragons are multicolored – blues and greens, oranges and purples. They are bigger than horses but not huge, sleek with wide wings. I love it when they sort of peel off the ledge, swoop, and glide around the fantastic places with floating rock islands. The jungles of Pandora are lush green and turquoise with plenty of fluorescent purplish flowers. Who needs trippy mushrooms when you have imagination?

I was going to write something serious about being at the end of your rope. Something realistically inspirational. I still like the swinging to a ledge idea. Just chill for a while and see if a dragon comes along to be your friend. But then, after you rest a bit and have some mushrooms (or grubs if you prefer) you can climb up to the top or find a path down. There’s aways a way. Maybe not right away, but a way. You could even climb the rope. Personally, I’d go for the ledge and catch my breath first.

Now, I’m going hunting in my photos for dragons…

PS, if you’re a LOTR fan, wait for the Eagles! They’ll be along.


Today’s prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is…. β€œrope.” Use it as a noun or a verb. Have fun!

  1. Truly lovely, JoAnn! Thank you.

  2. Thanks for the chuckle and I certainly remember to swing when I reach the end of mine again πŸ˜„ and I wait for Eagles and dragons. The more the merrier 🀣

  3. I would love a plate of mushrooms and a ride on an Avatar dragon, but I’ll pass on the grubs. Ewww. It would be wonderful if Pandora were a real place, open only to those who believe.

    Have a wonderful weekend JoAnna and I hope you’re hanging in the middle of your rope and having a time of peace.

    • Pandora, open only to those who believe. Now that’s a great vision! And I bet Pandora has some great mushrooms. I have no idea how the grubs showed – we’ll just leave them be. I had a nice and productive day hanging around the house. Happy Sunday, Mary! πŸ™‚

  4. Thanks for the ride. All things are possible when we free our imagination πŸ™‚ There’s also the option of just letting go of the rope that may in fact be a noose that’s strangling all the joy in one’s life.

  5. That’s a great example of streams of consciousness. Well done!

  6. Very nicely done, JoAnna. I love your dragons, especially the cloud.

  7. Especially love the wreath and dragon cloud!

  8. JoAnna, I really enjoyed your stream. I’d skip the mushrooms, but gladly climb on top of a dragon to go flying around. Your wreath is lovely.

  9. πŸ’— πŸ§œβ€β™€οΈ 🐚 πŸ’—

  10. Lovely wreath, JoAnna. Beautiful colors. I have always liked mermaids. ❀

  11. Thank you for sharing!!.. well done with the wreath!!.. imagination does add adventure to one’s life along with your pictures.. will have to watch the clouds closely today to see what lurks in the sky… don’t have any rope here, my heart has a direct link to my dreams and there are no “end of the rope”… πŸ™‚

    Until we meet again..
    May your day be touched
    by a bit of Irish luck,
    Brightened by a song
    in your heart,
    And warmed by the smiles
    of people you love.
    (Irish Saying)

    • I like how you think beyond the rope. Who needs a rope when you have a strong heart full of sweet dreams? πŸ™‚ Thank you for your expansive perspective, Larry! πŸ™‚
