WOD [word of the day]: fantasy

alien spacecraft or puffy white clouds . . . .
When I was a kid, I spent hours staring at the sky.  Then I stumbled across this quote: "Fantasy is not an escape from reality -- it's a way of understanding it."

Such a perfect explanation of why I like fantasy, both reading it and writing it.  When I write fantasy what I'm really doing is taking things about our world--the good, bad and ugly--and trying to understand where we are, why we are, and where we could be going.
