Aetherea (Alia Baroque)

Seeds of Story
These are suggestions. Be inspired by this land and write what you desire.
You have arrived in the most magical of cities, where every building is a temple and the still water reflects each detail with perfect clarity. Would that your soul were as clear! What brings you to this place of spirit? What ills are you hoping to cure? For what wrongs might you be seeking forgiveness?
Here, fishes and birds move together in flocks from air to water and air again. Are they the same? Do they change one to the other? Are they real at all? Could you, for example, eat one? Or are they creatures of light and air?
You sit on a pillow in meditation as a strange-scented incense wafts into the air around you. As you breathe it in, your mind is overtaken by strange visions and imaginings. What do you experience?
In your altered state, the fanciful detailing on the buildings almost seems to come alive. Wait … did those fronds wave in the still air? What do they symbolize? You become deeply interested in the myths of this place. As you meditate, one of those myths comes into your mind.
If you ruled this peaceful, beautiful place, who would you be? A king? A priest? A goddess? What would your role be? How would you life here?
