If I made the words teardrop tattoo a link to my piece of the same name and then a link to the podcast, live blogging, woohoo, that would be a double reverse psychopomp and I would pop back out there into the radio again,
exu…, bless you, haha. A wonderful slamming down of your glass as a toast to the weekend. I love every word in this little ditty and must try and use each one three times today. a link to the podcast… who what where? I shall go check…
Its two in the AM on a Saturday. The crickets are chittering, treefrogs are chirping, my dog is asleep under my bed and I mailed my manuscript yesterday. A broken arrow is half a peace sign. A teardrop tattoo must be a scar left from love.
I guess this is why they cover the mirrors when somebody dies…
I do not like the idea of bringing them back -carrying memories that are to vivid -that does make me feel …not well in my own skin. I fear tattoos too- commitment issues maybe?
I’ve been coming back to this time and again, waiting for that ultimate reading that makes it all come together. It hasn’t all merged for me yet, but I can feel my feeble brain expanding to meet the challenge. By the way, I am really enjoying the Puzzle Box. I read a couple of pages each night to bring my head out of my study. Fantastic work, Paul.
Thnks everybody. I like a little mental gymnastics. I think ideas do have a kind of shape like in a mental map, they feel like that to me anyway. Oh what do other people think about answering each comment individually? I like to do it but it’s a bit time consuming. But is doing just one general big thankyou like this a bit rude? I don’t know. The feedback is great though and definitely much appreciated. Rage on,
Hey Paul. I’ve been struggling with that problem too. It’s always nice to come back and see a personal response, so I feel as though I should really be trying to make the same effort. The other option is the email response. I’ve had a few of those and it does give one a nice rosy feeling; but as you say, its pretty time consuming. Personally, I don’t take any offence from the group hug. In fact, if it’s done really well it could be very exciting indeed.
Personally? I think each response speaks for itself and bounces off the other. I notice blogs where the blogger waits to sum up leads to more dynamic discussion among the discussants rather than just everything addressed to the blogger. I think it’s important we bloggers get less dependent on the blogger’s approval and just more concerned with what we have the say. The blogger has already made his/her contribution with the post. So I don’t think people should take lack of personal responses personally and I am trying to work towards that goal myself. No response necessary, of course.
