All these Enterprises are #ImaginaryPlaces but, at times, have seemed quite real to me! #WanderingPlaces @Cinfhen @BarbaraBB 😁🖖🏻

Cinfhen 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 6mo

Poet422 They are imaginary only in the fact that in our current time-line they haven‘t been realized. If we conclude, as current string theory suggests, that time only exists as linear because of our perception limitations then we can safely conclude that at somewhen an Enterprise-like craft is exploring strange new worlds and seeking out new life and new civilizations... #iamandalwayswillbeyourfriend #livelongandprosper 🖖🏻 6mo

Dune | Frank Herbert

#ImaginaryPlaces #WanderingJune #currentread #DuneInJune
Just started this behemoth and have arrived at the desert planet Arrakis. Not even 100 pages in, and there is already much political intrigue and religious lore to interpret in the Dune universe. Off to a promising start overall 🏜️ 🐛
@BarbaraBB @Cinfhen

Cinfhen Ooohhh, I‘ve wanted to read this book but #pagecountphobia 6mo
Billypar @Cinfhen It was a birthday gift from my boss- a favorite of hers. I usually don't read 800 page chunksters or sci-fi, but I'm a sucker for just about anything I hear is on someone's all-time favorites list. 6mo
Cinfhen That‘s a really thoughtful gift!! I‘ll watch for your final thoughts 6mo

rretzler A great book and a good series - that is until I bailed on book 4. I do plan to go back and reread and finish it off one day. 6mo
Billypar @rretzler I didn't even realize it was a series until I started reading it. Such an impressive achievement to imagine a world in this level of depth- seems like much more than the plot developments. 6mo
rretzler That‘s the beauty of it, I think. The entire society and political intrigues that Herbert created is mind-blowing and wonderful. And his son has continued the series. I‘ve read several of those and they are good too (better than book 4 of the series.) I believe Herbert was influenced by Edgar Rice Burroughs‘ Mars series and Isaac Asimov‘s Foundation series, which are also very good, if perhaps a little dated. 6mo
Suet624 Such a good book. I read it soon after it came out - hundreds of years ago! - and I still have scenes popping up in my mind from it. It‘s on my list to read again. 6mo
Billypar @rretzler A woman on the subway today saw me reading Dune, and she was telling me how it was a favorite and changed her life. She also really liked Children of Dune, but said God Emperor was tough to get through, but the end was good. Interesting about the influences- thanks for those! 6mo
Billypar @Suet624 That's pretty neat to be an original fan of something that would become a classic. I'm a little disappointed that I'm about 5 years too old to have had Harry Potter in my childhood when the first book came out. With this one, I'm still early, but enjoying it so far! 6mo

The author takes us into the imaginary place of the lives of book characters once the pages have been closed. What do they do while they wait for you to open the book and continue reading?

Victoriahoperose I love these books so much ❤️❤️❤️ 6mo
CrowCAH @Victoriahoperose I haven‘t read the second one yet, but I plan on it! 6mo
Cinfhen Interesting thought!! 6mo

CrowCAH @Cinfhen it‘s well written. And the inside is gorgeous: colored ink, graphics on several pages, and beautiful illustrations at the beginning of sections!!! 6mo
Cinfhen Wow!! I haven‘t seen that done before 6mo
CrowCAH @Cinfhen I know! That‘s why it was an “instant buy” at the bookstore! 6mo

Secret Garden | Frances Hodgson Burnett

#WanderingJune

(Day 2 - #ImaginaryPlaces)

*While the garden is real, parts of Burnett‘s story involve the imaginations of some of the characters, e.g., Colin must use his imagination to conceive of the garden as Mary describes it; Mary may or may not use her imagination in following the directions of the almost anthropomorphic robin redbreast; Mr. Craven‘s imagination might be fashioning the sprits who visit him, and the ensuing dream he has. ♥️

“If you can dream a thing, then it has a kind of reality in your thoughts. And if you dream hard enough, and have the right vehicle - a vehicle that you really love, a part of yourself - you can slip right out of reality and into that other, better, imaginary world, where the only reality is the one you allow.”

JoScho So ready for the show tonight! 6mo
LiterRohde @JoScho I so wish this was an Amazon or Netflix production. Don‘t have AMC! 6mo
JoScho I think they have a streaming service or app. I saw an offer to watch the first three episodes that way. Check it out. 6mo
LiterRohde @JoScho I might have to do that. I don‘t usually. Like I want to see Star Trek Discovery (and now Star Trek Picard) but have refused the idea of getting CBS All Access. But I loved NOS4A2 the book and have heard good things about this adaptation. 6mo
