I don’t know about you, but my stress levels have been running pretty high of late. Too much work, not enough play, and I won’t even talk about the upcoming election. So how about we all go on a journey together to this idyllic place?

Step aboard one of these graceful boats and enjoy a smooth sail on this calm river. The air is warm, and beautiful beams of light are filterng gently through the green canopy above. The chatter of birds, the whisper of trees swaying in the breeze, and the lapping of the water are soothing to the soul. Just look at the architecture–surely there is elven magic about. I’m anticipating we’ll be met with the most gracious hospitality; fine foods, heavenly music, and beautiful visions to delight our memories for a lifetime. Only one caution…once there, you may not want to come back.

Get your typing fingers warmed up, because today’s image gives so many story possibilities. Where is this place? It almost has a catacomb feel, like it has been buried underground. Silent. Dark. We seem to be in a large chamber, but I can imagine that there are a maze of black tunnels twisting off of it. Light breaks through from above this bent tree, the earth beneath it overgrown with tall grass and weeds, twists of vine, and even a spider web. Its roots are breaking through its stone confinement, tearing up the floor.

Wherever this place is, no one has been here for a long time. Perhaps that skull belonged to the last visitor who braved its tunnels. What is in the mysterious chalice next to it? Could be poison. Could be something else. I’m not all that eager to sip from it, are you? Not without knowing more. The title itself intrigues me, “The Last Light.” Have we entered a completely darkened world, and this is the last light anywhere? Captured, preserved, and maybe even protected in this chamber from those who would snuff it out?

It’s one possibility–surely there are more. Have fun exploring them, and feel free to share your ideas in the comments. I’m always happy to feature any stories that are inspired by my Fantasy Art Wednesday posts, so don’t be shy!
