Flights of fancy

Flights of fancy

Definition of flight of fancy/imagination/fantasy
According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary

An idea, story, etc., that shows great imagination but is very unlikely to be true or practical.
Arthur’s seat

It’s the main peak of the group of hills in Edinburgh, Scotland and one can have a 360° view of the City.

Arthur’s seat is a hill with a height of 822ft (251m), said to be around 350 million years old. Said to have formed from a volcano.

Nobody knows how the hill derived its name.

The hump of Arthurs’s seat dominates the Edinburgh skyline.


Now Open your gift of imagination!

Have you closely observed the hill and its hump in the image above?

Start imagining the shape of the hill.

Imagine that you are standing on the left side of the hill and just towards its back.


Don’t you agree with me that the shape resembles that of a lion in a sitting position with its head raised?

This view substantiates the perception that Arthur’s seat resembles the shape of a lion couchant (In the couchant position-Lion is lying down, but with head raised; the lion is awake)

“Imagination is more important than knowledge.

For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution”

Albert Einstein

Always in my dreams, I am flying


90% of my dreams are just about flying.

I don’t know why I get such dreams.

In this dream, I have the power… just circle myself and lo…I start ascending and soon I reach the clouds,

I even avoid the obstacles like power lines etc. and people look at me with awe! Ha-ha


Superman indeed!!

The feeling is joyful indeed!

“Whenever I dream about flying, it’s the best feeling in the world” Kate Mara

Dog’s Face?

“Imagination is usually regarded as a synonym for the unreal… Indeed, the power of imagination makes us infinite.”

John Muir

“A friend is the wax that keeps the flame lit, an enemy is the wind that blows it out” Anthony Liccione

In the image above, I felt I am seeing a dog’s face with its eye and black nose/mouth.

This part is actually a handle of the lamp that almost got rusted.

Thank you for your visit.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

      1. Pareidolia: I had that word stuck somewhere in the back of my brain, but I couldn’t pull it out. I tried searching with Google, but couldn’t find enough of a definition for it to remind me of the word I was looking for.

  1. Insightful post. Excellent. Upon our last, early arrival in Edinburgh, m’lady and I decided to hike up Arthur’s Seat to acclimate and lose some jet lag. Woof! We got acclimated!!

  2. It was fun to take a closer look at the photos with your descriptions. Definitely a lion. The dog..I had to convince myself of that one. I do find it funny you dream about flying. Maybe you should try one of those paragliders. I certainly wold NOT join you as I would be too afraid. Nice pictures.

  3. Interesting. I used to dream about flying when i was young. Very often. But, I never could get enough height to leave the room. Always the ceiling touching my back. Once I had finished my studies and started working, I stopped dreaming of flying. I was free.

    Love your take on and explanations – now I got a word for seing faces in things too…
