That was my concern when writing this: Would anyone understand what I meant? And I am encouraged by your response. By the way, the blog linked to your Gravatar hasn’t been updated in about a year.

But what I really love about this creation is how she includes her actual handwritten version of the poem, as in ink on paper. She has an illustration and highlights some phrases as well. I have always loved handwriting, perhaps because I always wished mine were just a little bit more like the way I envisioned it should be. The physical lines, varying widths, decisions about spacing of the letters, how many words go on a line, how to indent each line, whether to drop some letters down below the line or not – all these things are small representations and reflections of the author. And I’m not speaking in terms of psycho-analysis, to somehow determine that a person takes wild risks or resents their mother based on how you write your lowercase “i”‘s. It’s simply another connection point with the author – like when you see Beethoven’s handwritten original compositions with his annotations, or when I read the flight log of my grandfather from the 1940’s when he was training in the Navy. I love that Sabiscuit shared this part of herself along with her – or, more correctly, as part of – her composition. It challenges me to see how I could do something similar.

LikeLike He stumbled a bit and fell into the pit. Be careful with that axe Eugene 😀 LikeLiked by 1 person I’m hoping he does. It’ll be a happy bonus. LikeLike Instead of a pit, dig a moat all the way around, no chance for error 😀 LikeLiked by 1 person Unless a greedy girl grabs him first. Then my moat had better be filled with my favourite curry, as I might need to eat my blues away. x LikeLike Well, the moat should keep them out. Don’t forget the secret tunnel to the bit in the middle. I cannot stress enough how important that is, especially if you fill your moat with man eating sharks.. LikeLiked by 1 person I love sharks, so thank you for the reminder and the suggestions. I’ll add some steel crosses, too, to ward off glampires. x LikeLike Lots of garlic too… LikeLiked by 1 person This is wonderful, and I love how you have written and drawn it on paper. It makes the poem come to life even more, to see a physical representation of what you created. LikeLiked by 2 people Thank you so much, Matt. I am normally perturbed by my own handwriting but was surprised that I finally could make out words, after all these years. LikeLiked by 1 person I think it’s wonderful. I think handwriting is so interesting. LikeLiked by 1 person Lovely! LikeLiked by 1 person Thank you so much! LikeLiked by 1 person Terrific.

I’ll be back though LikeLiked by 1 person I hope you’re feeling better after taking that walk. Triggers are rough. After bawling for two whole days a few weeks ago, I feel for anyone who has to go through that. (Hugs) x LikeLiked by 1 person I’m fine. Just hit me how accurate that was. It appears she took it down. I hope that wasnt due to my reaction or something. It was a great article. LikeLiked by 1 person Please let her know. I sometimes remove things after they’ve made the impact I wanted but Ems is a lovely person and I’m sure she felt she didn’t want to cause you any pain on purpose. No one does. If you see a trigger in anything I post, please tell me, okay? LikeLiked by 1 person I hope I didn’t make her feel bad in any way. I know she couldn’t have possibly predicted that. Hell I didn’t see it coming either. It was a great article. I hope she reposts it. I got more out that than in 3months of therapy….and I loved my therapist. LikeLiked by 1 person That is awesome. Writing can be healing. I’m glad you feel better, at least. x LikeLiked by 1 person I sent her a message on another post. Haven’t seen a response yet. Wish I hadn’t said anything now. Hope I didn’t make her feel bad, at all. Last thing I meant to do if that’s the case LikeLiked by 1 person Your feelings are real to you and I’m glad you felt comfortable expressing them openly. I think the way you did it was insightful. If you were helped by her, even if the first rush of it was a bit overwhelming, it’s all good as you’re a newer version of you, right now. LikeLiked by 1 person Well, I just created a post apologizing. Hope she sees it. I feel really bad about it. Should’ve just kept my mouth shut. Didnt need to lay that on her.
