Second person challenge…

Anyone else feel up to the challenge of writing a short story/poem from the second person point of view? That would be narrating the story to “you,” as my blessed grammar teachers are helping me understand… I’m including the link to rawgod’s example story because I couldn’t reblog it for some reason.

TRIGGER WARNING: the subject matter involves rape, so if this triggers you, please do not follow this link…

Please post links to your stories in the comments section, so we can all appreciate your efforts! 😁

I cannot like you, and I don’t know why…

Just letting you all know that WordPress and I are having issues yet again. *sigh* I cannot like your posts from email or from your actual sites. I cannot always comment. In fact, for most of you who I follow, a new glitch has occurred…

Now, when I go to your site, I am offered the option to follow you, even though I still receive your emails directly in my inbox. If I click on that, thinking I’ve been booted again, it asks me to sign in to my WordPress account, and then fails to recognize my password when I try. The only reason I can post this explanation (if it does, indeed, post), is because I am permanently logged into my site.

Technology is not, and has never been, my friend. It is a necessary “evil” for interacting in today’s world. And honestly, I’m tired of trying to make it work for me. I accept it as the tyrant and tormentor it is, and do my best to find a way to creatively side-step its ever-changing rules and expectations. This post is another attempt to do just that…

But I love what you all have been writing lately, even if I can’t express that in real-time. 😁

The Café Philos Poetry Prompt For Them That Be Wild Things (March 31, 2019)

There are several poets I know of who follow my blog. Anyone interested in a challenge? 😁

Café Philos: an internet café

In the clearing stands a boxer, and a fighter by his trade
And he carries the reminders of every glove that laid him down or cut him
‘Til he cried out in his anger and his shame
I am leaving, I am leaving, but the fighter still remains.
— Paul Simon, The Boxer.

Defiance.  I cannot think of defiance without thinking of The Boxer — and without, almost in the same breath, thinking of my mother.
