All weekend long as we were going about our business, my mind kept nagging at me: “U”…you have to come up with a U word…then the first word that would come to mind: UNDERWEAR. Really. I am 7 years old.
Another word that kept coming to me: Utopia. I have always loved this word…well, more than the word, I love the meaning. Wait, I suppose I love the meaning of Utopia that I have had in MY mind since…forever!
But when I googled it, I came across a plethora of meanings…all made to confuse me. really, who would do such a thing to me?
In MY mind Utopia is a perfect place to live your life; consisting of a perfect political and social system. Meaning, all people are treated the same and everyone treats each other with respect and kindness. Humans and nature living in perfect harmony…..
A fantasy? perhaps. But what a great fantasy to have.
I think if I had to choose ONE place for my utopian community….it would be in the mountains of North Carolina. Oh, just like God himself came down and touched it all. (which he DID)
There would be rope swings to ‘tarzan’ off and clean creeks to play in.
No, never mind, perhaps the shores of the Hawaii. yeah, that would be my Utopia.
Oh jeeze, do I have to pick just one place to have this fantasy???
I suppose it does not really matter WHERE it would be. The important part would be WHO was in my utopian community. I have a few favorites already chosen…they would have to join me for sure. Would you like to come? Live peaceful and happy lives? Do good for others? Do good for yourself and not have to worry about the “bad eggs” anymore?
Awww…that would be niiiiice.
Utopia could be as close as my back yard…..
Or way down in Costa Rica. Pura Vida baby! (pure life)
I guess it could be just a ‘state of mind.’
If you could start your own Utopian Community, where would it be?
And can I come along with my posse???? Please???
