Thanks for all the wishes for me to get better, they helped and I am, thank you.

Now I wanted to tell you about a day when I went for a walk.
I started off falling from a rain cloud which had picked me up as it passed my house. It drifted for miles and miles collecting water and many many other items such as frogs and sheep on its way.
The tanks we were all being held in were made of a fluffy substance that was soft to the touch. Eventually the tanks wall burst and I began to fall along with the rest of the contents I had shared my journey with.
I felt I might die as I fell, it seemed to go on forever. Finally the ground arrived and luckily for me a bouncy castle that had also been collected up landed directly below me.
After bouncing several times I came to rest and found myself staring over a beautiful vista. I could see for miles, but where was I?
I dragged myself to my feet and began to walk in the direction of a lovely looking valley, I hoped the valley would lead me to civilization.
I could see a wonderful tree in the distance and as I walked I imagined sitting under the tree with a cool drink and a picnic whilst enjoying the warming rays of the sun.
After hours of walking I finally reached the tree, it was perched on the edge of a large cliff, I decided to climb it to get some height and try to get my bearings. It was then that my foot slipped, I fell backwards from the tree and over the cliff.
Falling, falling, falling, falling................ I knew this was the end, I knew there would be no bouncy castle to save me this time.
I landed, there was no pain, I had the firm ground beneath my feet, I was alive and completely unhurt.
It was then that I began to stand upright and came face to face with the small tree I had just fallen from. How could this be? How did I survive and how on earth was I now taller than the cliff I had fallen down?
Confused I wiped the sleep from the corner of my eyes, walked through the gate in the dry stone wall I had been leaning against and went into the house where I made myself a cup of tea to ponder my epic journey.

Thanks for looking and for any comments you might leave.

What a splendid story Andy,and I think it would make a splendid film too.
However,like most films today,you will need to add a bit of sex and violence.
And it is only Miss Marples that drinks tea in films,so you will need to man up and have a stiff shot of whisky instead !!

An enchanting macro photo, beautifully composed.
Wish I could remember my dreams in any sort of detail. Well, the nice ones anyway!

Phew, what an adventure. I'd have wanted a G&T after all that excitement. Grin
A lovely involving image to go with your sweet story.
