Picture it and write: Capture It

Hi there! This is my offering for this week’s picture it and write from Ermilia’s blog here. Once again; the picture is not mine, I only use it for inspiration. Anyway; enjoy!

Capture it:

A picture can say a thousand words. But can it feel a thousand emotions? That is why we take them; to capture the feeling, the emotion of that instant, the perfect moment.

But if you have just a picture how well can that moment be saved. You are depending on memory, which we all know is fallible. Is there a better way. Yes there is and we at Riddle industries proudly present our latest innovation, the Omnigraph©.

The Omnigraph© is the very latest in enchanted bottles. When first opened to the light, it instantly and faithfully stores not only it’s physical surroundings, but also the feelings associated with it. With it’s durable casing, the Omnigraph© will store this sensation in it’s pristine state indefinitely and to relive it exactly all you have to do is open it again and look inside.
Like all our products the Omnigraph© has the Riddle Industries’ guarantee of quality. It is made from the finest mountain quartz, fused and shaped with pure dragon-fire from our flock of purebred Himalayan dragons. The enchantment is performed by wizards and witches who have been trained to the most exacting standards and who certify each bottle with pride. We are so confident in our quality that we are prepared to offer you a lifetime of memory or your money back*.

Imagine it! The carefree days of youth, the rush of first love, the beauty of nature, there, contained for you to enjoy at any moment, in perfect clarity.

Order a pack of ten Omnigraphs© now and you will get a special carrying case, hand-carved from hazel-wood with labels for the low price of fifteen gold coins.

*Lifetime offer extends to a maximum of 99 years and 364 days and is not applicable to vampires, zombies, ghosts and others with recognized conditions of a lifetime extending nature.





Drama in Shadow

“What are you doing?”

“Excuse me!”

“You’re looking at my legs!”

“I’m not!”

“You are! If you keep it up I’m going to hit you!”


Watching them a baby started to laugh.
