We are the....





Delores at Under thePorch Light provides some amazing challenges:  Six unrelated-topic words and/or a sentence prompt.  Click on the train tracks in my right sidebar to see other writers' ideas.

I could not resist the sentence prompt!  Usually those crazy six words send me winding down some road.  But this time she wrote

…spinner of tales…teller of dreams…

In school, I was the ultra-obedient student, altho my mind was not.

So taking these fragments I will give you instead a Gene Wilder spin on them with this:

...we are the music makers...we are the dreamer of dreams....

Gene Wilder is such a perfect actor for this role.

Delores, you are amazing.

P.S. Tomorrow my post will attack the six words.  Check back here!

  1. Now I want to watch Willy Wonka all over again.
    The Gene Wilder one, not the Johnny Depp version, I didn't like that one.

  5. I haven't seen that movie classic in years! (Giving all due credit to the genius Roald Dahl) Yes, we are the music makers... the dreamer of dreams.

    1. Roald Dahl wrote some wonderful books..."James and the Giant Peach" being one. I don't know why someone took that book and slaughtered it in a movie.

  6. He did awesome in the role indeed. That Depp one was garbage

  7. I liked the Gene Wilder version of that movie better than the newer one.

    1. Why does the movie industry insist on re-doing the classics? Never mess with perfection, is my belief.

  8. How lovely to hear that you too were an obedient student with a mind which refused to conform. Looking forward (as always) to your take on the words.

    1. Who knew, in those days, what I was thinking? I had such a great poker face (which I still possess). I knew you were part of the club.

  9. When I was little that was my favorite book. You are right Gene Wilder was perfect for that role!

    1. I read it aloud to 3rd gr. students. There was so much in the book. The movie simply could not include all the wit and humor in it all, so they chose the best parts.

    And some of us are those who loved Willy's wonky chocolate factory. (Though Bears prefer hunny.)

    Blessings and Bear hugs!

    1. The factory was like every child's dream, except for the dark side.

  11. I toed the line in school too. I got paddled a few times for doing something goofy, but that was rare.
    I love word prompts. Jilda and I use them for songwriting too.

    1. My brothers got the paddle, but I was all innocent and obedient. But, in my mind, that would have not been the case.

  13. I've always loved Gene Wilder. I especially enjoyed his collaborations with Mel Brooks. I didn't see Willy Wonka until after our kids were born, and I can't help but tear up whenever I hear "Pure Imagination."
