Casper

Clouds are natural phenomenon, a result of water and sun and different altitude. Still, we often look in the sky and search for some symbols and shapes, as if it could give us a clue about something or someone. Would a cloud in a shape of a dog mean something?

Would a ghost-like creature of Casper, the friendly ghost mean that we have an invisible friend who is always happy and want to play around with us? Maybe it will. It is said that “what you believe, it will happen”. So, we should truly believe and this little positive creature will somehow make our life happier and better. It might sound as a phantasy, but if we did believe in Santa for a pretty long period of our life, why can’t we believe in a little happy ghost? Being positive and happy is surely a good thing, isn’t it?

Stern

In response to daily prompt Stern by The Daily Spur.

Stern will always be a star for me. It’s not that I cannot add a meaning to it. But, sky and the night has always have a special magic. It shows how small we are in this Universe and how whatever we do, the day will pass and the new night, magic night comes. Sometimes, this routine heals even the deepest wounds…..

MYTH

Puppis is one of the three constellations that used to form the Greek constellation Argo Navis, which represented the ship on which Jason and the Argonauts sailed to get the Golden Fleece. The French astronomer Nicolas Louis de Lacaille divided the Argo Navis constellation into the three smaller ones – Carina, Puppis and Vela – in the 18th century. Puppis is the largest of the three.

Neither Puppis nor Vela have stars designated Alpha and Beta, as these stars were allocated to Carina constellation.

Puppis is the Stern or the poop deck of the Ship Argo Navis. Puppis is from Latin puppis, ‘stern, poop’, French poupe, from Old Provencal poppa. The word puppis was also used in Latin as a standard word for ‘ship’, but technically it refers to the rear deck of the ship which is the poop deck, the afterpart of a ship.

The word stern derives from Indo-European *sta, the base of a long list of derivative words. In sailing ships the steerage was always located at the stern. The words stern, steer and starboard (steerboard) comes from Germanic *steuro, ‘a steering’ (from Indo-European *sta-).

“The stern (puppis) is the rear part of a ship, as if the term were post (literally ‘after’).” [The Etymologies of Isidore of Seville, 7th century AD, p.374.].

Retrospective

Retrospective about Daily Post prompts….

It has been a while when I stumbled upon this page. It is amazing how one word, one prompt can bring up so many ideas, thoughts, invite memories or dreams to come out and become some kind of writing adventure. Along all these prompts, for which I was only sorry that my current lifestyle did’t allow me to follow every single day, I have had a help of friends that tried to write their own stories. So, I admit that this is not all made by me, but from several of us.

Still, when travelling, running and positive motivation have been published it was mainly mine. We will all try to continue finding new inspiration in everyday life. Who knows, maybe some other daily prompts waits in front of us.

I feel as at the end of the school. You did all, sometimes perfect, sometimes less perfect, but you did it and at the end you can say that you have finished that school. This is similar with this adventure with Daily Prompts, we participated in some, we made really great texts but sometimes we missed several of them.

In the end, the result is a great number of wonderful posts from all of us that tried to inspired others and of course… be inspired by others. I liked reading other people’s posts about the same word. I was always curious to see where will they go with their thoughts, ideas, dreams, stories.

Now, we should all continue writing. If possible, every single day and who knows maybe we will again stumble on each other in some other series of daily prompts and share our visions, dreams, memories and whatever cross our writer’s mind.

I wish you all good luck in life and writing and thank you for reading my posts inspired by Daily Prompts. It was really a special adventure for all of us.
