Fictional Intruder

July 16, 2014 2 comments

Go down the rabbit hole with Alice; play quid-ditch with Harry Potter; float down the river with Huck Finn… If you could choose three fictional events or adventures to experience yourself, what would they be?

I admire such adventures and fairy tales because they allow us to let our minds dream and wander into strange lands.  When reading such books we let our imagination go wild – like Alice and her adventures in Wonderland, Gulliver’s Travels, The Chronicles of Narnia, Harry Potter, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory etc.

It’s difficult to choose a single one here.  I will talk about playing Charlie in the Chocolate factory.  I would love to find that golden ticket for a trip to the Chocolate factory and immerse myself in those adventures.  I would also love to meet that lovely family who supported Charlie for whom that visit meant ‘the world’.  This story shows that there is so much happiness in simple pleasures and adventures.

Kids love chocolate in all its flavours
They just can’t resist a bite into them
And then as it melts in their mouth
They just revel in that yummy feeling

Chocolates, icecreams, truffles and cakes
They will do anything to get a taste
They’ll hug you and give you kisses
If you agree to buy them that chocolate

They take a small bite
Let the taste linger
That small chocolate to them
Can last forever

The chocolate is spread all over their hands and face
But the innocent kids just don’t care
They are lost in the moment of joy
Chocolate in all its delight
