Re: Distraught

Yes, as has been said many times: shit happens.  On occasion I'll put my cup off coffee in the fridge to reheat it... or I'll put the cream away in the microwave...............  My best was when I was heading back home from my farm and stopped at the gas station some 25 miles away to fill up, only t...

Re: Air

Hi Colm - At first, like Linda, I thought it might be metaphor for our current viral times, especially "now twist and reveal their other side silvered by the disturbance, a rich rejection" But I soon got a sense that this was a moment, one to enjoy for it's simple pure beauty... and it brought me ca...

Re: Isolation

Nicely done, Dylan.  A great exploration of our times.  For a while one might have thought that Mother Nature had won, but we humans are resilient.... I only hope, a faint hope, that maybe we will have learned a bit?  Naw - unlikely.

Re: Tribes

Colm - what a beautiful and gripping write... and what a touching tale of selflessness.  Thanks for the link - I had no idea.  Honor goes to the Irish people for not forgetting, living the admonition "Never Forget."  And I understand the shedding of a tear or two................

Re: I Thought She Was A Goddess

Wonderful write, difficult write, and tells lots.  I go with the thoughts that it is so incredibly sad that one could be lost in the unwinning battle to find one's worth in one's appearance and features, and not give one any value to one's heart and soul... to be so lost to the whims and fancies of ...

Re: Who can you blame?

Colm, this is really good.  I like the idea of taking this into a play or longer story.  "Before you became it"
