Can you imagine being stuck in a claw machine? You yearn to escape from your ordinary reality, which is being the prize toy in a claw machine. Once in a while, a human drops a token coin into the slot of your machine. The mechanical claw moves to position itself to grab you. Then the claw reaches down. It grabs you. It loses its grasp. You can’t escape from the confines of this machine. You have a feeling of doom that you’re going to be stuck here forever.
Do you feel your life is going nowhere? Do you desire to escape the ordinary and live to the fullness of the spectrum of life?
Prompt from Michelle Cook – escaping ordinary.
