A challenge put down by Sammi Scribbles
The word is quixotic
The word count is 26
It might sound like a Victorian term of quasi-illness but here’s an actual definition:-
impracticality in pursuit of ideals, especially those ideals manifested by rash, lofty and romantic ideas or extravagantly chivalrous action
an idealism without regard to practicality
an impulsive person
It also made me think of the lyric ‘the windmills of your mind’. My mind is definitely a turmoil. I wouldn’t like to think of myself as ‘rash’ though – who would?! But it’s not easy to find contentment when faced with so many limitations. Sometimes I have to reign myself back in and accept the very frustrating walls and barriers and just plain frailty. My dreams are certainly not lofty though. Do I crave a supposed ‘normal’? Perhaps. But that’s best left to dishwashers.
