The Sunday Salon: Stories in my Head

No, not the stories I'm making up and feel the need to write down (though that would be fun) but the stories that are getting told to me that are rumbling around inside of my head and getting all mixed up together! That's what I'm having fun with today.

So what stories are getting told to me?

Well, I went to see Inception last night. Whoa, lots of stuff to ponder there. What is reality and what is not? Then, I'm reading the third Eye of the World book where many of the characters are having very realistic dreams, so these two stories seem to be meshing together, especially as I'm falling asleep myself and everything is all muddled up together.

Add to that the fact that we just checked out the first season of Prison Break and are now five episodes in.... and of course I'm all wrapped up in Michael's trauma and drama which is in turn getting all mixed into the dreams of both Inception and the Eye of the World world!

It's a little crazy! Ah, but fun!

So what's swirling around in your head today?

What the family is reading:

Mr. Stuey: Daughter of Fortune by Isabel Allende
JJ: Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
Moder: The Alchemyst by Michael Scott
Toto: The Diary of Anne Frank by Anne Frank

Dang, those are some great books getting read at my house!


  1. The stories that swirl around in my head are all about things I should be doing...reading more books on those huge stacks; finishing the review I need to write, etc.

    Here's my salon:

  2. I saw Inception yesterday, too. I felt like my poor brain got a real work out, and I really liked it!

  3. You're not kidding - those are some awesome books being read in your household this week!

    I have heard fabulous reviews of Inception. While I rarely go to the movie theater, and I am afraid that it might be a little too confusing for me, I simply cannot resist Leonardo on the big screen again :)

  4. Laurel: Yes, I have that sort of thing swirling in my head too, but these books, movies and shows seemed to even take over that this weekend!

    Megan: LOVE brain workouts!

    Molly: Oh, if you love Leo, you HAVE to go! Don't worry about understanding everything or trying to figure it out, just go and enjoy.

  5. Wow! There are some great books being read at your house.

    Really want to see Inception after I've heard so many good things about it.

  6. I just saw Inception too! I loved how it twisted my brain, but I also felt like something was lacking. I guess I expected more dreamlike/maze imagery, and not so much fighting/action. But it was still really good! A mindblower.
