#85 - "I carry"

The prompt this week is: "I carry." What do you carry with you? Is it metaphoric or tangible? Is it real? Is it imagined? Can you put it down? What's in your bag, your briefcase, your pocket, your wallet, your mind or your psyche? Do you choose to carry the same pebble around every day? Do you carry a diaper bag everywhere out of necessity? What does your main character carry in their pocket? Get them to tell us about it. Is your ever-present companion a pocket knife or a notebook or your memories of someone or something? Do you even know what is rattling around at the bottom of your bag? Dump it out! Tell us about it!

As you can see we are trying something new here! Please make sure you leave the link to the permanent post for this prompt.
The permalink should look like this: http://sundayscribblings.blogspot.com/2007/11/85-i-carry.html

It wrote Kiting in response to this week's Writers Island prompt, "The Dream" -- but it is appropriate for this SS prompt as well.

It is my dream that gets 'carried' skyward

Out of state for the last week, i probably would have skipped this week but with the new link, I wanted to be sure to post. I really like the topic. It has myriad possibilities. However, since it was already Monday evening when I saw the prompt for the first time, tonight's entry is really just a quicky, and very superficial on what really has the potential to be a very deep topic.
