This week’s photo prompt is provided by Nonnaci. Thank you Nonnaci for our prompt photo!

The Mission

In a quick flash, I disappeared from earth and found myself traveling inside of a gigantic eye called Seeing Is Believing.

The surrounding area inside of the eye was bright with a smooth surface and cool to the touch.

I became part of the eye and floated among the planets. I no longer had a body, I was the eye!

I learned that others were on the same type of mission I traveled.

We saw the true meaning of life and discovered positive ways to make ours better.

Our mission was to learn, and take back the knowledge to our planet to share with everyone.

The future seemed very dim when I left earth, however, upon returning I was optimistic at how bright it could be.

  1. Great take on the prompt. I’ve been tempted more than once, but I find I just don’t have time to take on another challenge. Enjoy reading what others are doing, though.


  2. Creative and imaginative. Such an interesting POV, become part of the eye, and eye yourself learning, to share your knowledge with the world. I like how this makes the future seem so much brighter. I believe knowledge and learning in general does, it opens up doors, makes you think, and consider new viewpoints. The parallels of this and your story are quite evident. Awesome job Jessie 🙂


  3. Great story with an optimistic ending! Who knows there are places out there where people/aliens or whosoever they are, know better about meaning of life.
    This story reminded me of the concept of astral travel, where people become a subtle point of light, leave their body and float up there. But I suppose even they don’t get to travel to other planets 🙂


  4. Thank you! There could be other life out there , especially since there are so many planets. There may even be life on those planets that are searching for things like we are.


  5. A very creative response to the prompt, Jessie. 🙂 Hopefully they’ll have also learnt how to make people listen to them and to accept that views that differ from their own are actually valid.


  6. Thank you! Wouldn’t that be wonderful ? Everyone has a right to their own opinion…the problem starts when “they” think no one else’s can possibly be right and are not willing to even listen and consider another opinion.
