“I pray for a time when we each shine in our own uniqueness and authenticity. When the idleness of conforming has transformed into an active celebration of the masses’ manifestation of love, acceptance, and peace. “ ~ Sam Craft
The Land of Grand:
There once was a kingdom in a make-believe land, so beautiful and lovely it was named: The Land of Grand. Until one day, when the King fell ill, from a terrible fall on a terrible spill. From that day forward, he rest in bed, with a gigantic lump upon his head. And as much as they tried, the people of the court, all of their remedies and cures fell short.
Thus the poor king remained dormant and sad, in his chamber all day, while the kingdom grew mad. The fields started to whither, the people the same, as they stuck to their homes, and played no more games. The laughter it ceased, the echoes grew dim, where once there was joy, a gloom had moved in.

I loved your story Sam! 🙂 I could see it as a children’s book one day. :)) Thank you!!!
🙂 🙂 Thanks so much.
Bless you! I read it with my read-aloud voice, you write like Seuss!
You obviously put a great deal of love and work into your sweet story. Thank you so much for creating and sharing! ❤ ❤ <3!
🙂 Actually Prophet in my Pocket whispered this to me about a year ago and I just typed what I heard. Took about an hour and then took a few minutes to edit, and presto, done! Thank you for the comment. I love the blind man in the story. My husband calls me Dr. Seuss, too. You’re such a Sweetie. Chat soon, Sam 🙂
Jeepers! What talent! I could have convused with 20 thesauruses (thesauri?) for a year and still not dreamt up such a charming tale. Good for you! 🙂
🙂 lol. You make lovely pictures…I can’t do that. 🙂 We could write a children’s book – your prints/drawings and my words. Hugs. You’re vey kind.
Beautiful story, Sam! You are so creative! Glad to see you upbeat after a difficult previous post!
😉 Thanks. I couldn’t deal with processing anymore happenings in my brain today. Appreciate the comment. The King is the government/leaders — the blind man is the innocent of heart making things right again. At least, that’s my interpretation. Could just as well be the university professor and the innocent one, too. Thanks for stopping by. I’ll have a hot cup of tea waiting for you next time. ~ Sam

You’re too sweet—like the frosting on a cupcake. I promise. You can have a stack of signed copies! Thanks for the kind, kind words, and the share. That story was “read” to me by Prophet in my Pocket in about an hour’s time. I typed what I heard. I do like that about Sir Brain. Does your daughter like words? I imagine she is a story teller. Light and Love ~ Sam
