French Mum, humanitarian, restless explorer and doer on sabbatical in Cebu (Philippines): one Attila in each arm, I am exploring the “toddlers safe” corners of the region, while trying to keep some room for Me.
Today’s daily prompt: When reading for fun, do you usually choose fiction or non-fiction? Do you have an idea why you prefer one over the other?
Do you know the meaning of fiction?
It is “literature in the form of prose, especially short stories and novels, that describe imaginary events or people”. Doesn’t it sound like an invitation to travel to you too?
Imaginary is one of my favorite words ever: it knows no boundary of time, of place, not even our sky could limit it.
If I had to divide my library between fiction and non fiction, I would make a special room for Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s master pieces. They would be on an altar…right in the middle of the room! Who said that Macondo never existed? Why can’t a grand mother be a bit of a magician? Actually, aren’t they all?
Gabo used to say “whatever matters in life is not what happens to you, but what you remember and how you remember it”. Fiction, non fiction: there is no such thing as a Great Divide. Sometimes reality overcomes fiction. Sometimes fiction is our reality. It all lays in the magical powers of those who have this unique gift: turning words into unique sentences able to sing to our soul.
