And this is the other angle from which I could have told the story. Needs a lot of work, but if I don't post it now, I never will.

There's one for me too - I've been putting off writing. No longer.

(This is wonderful, as always.)

Very well written.

Lovely. I won't say "I liek your writing," but I do.

Heavens, a good cry is SO cathartic!

What lovely imagery there is in that.

Sadly, that comment wasn't some anonymous part of your past stalking you through journals, it was me being too much of a muppet to log in correcetly.

Your writing

Thank you for that. Genuinely, you are living up to your talent, for whatever that's worth. You've encapsulated something truly important. I'm sure you do it all the time, but from here it's very impressive indeed.

Re: Your writing


I don't know if I do it all the time... I try to do it all the time; so often there's a feeling I'm trying to get across and I can't send it to people or put it in their heads, but it's there in them already if I could just find the right words to unlock it. There's probably a word for this... (I'm scratching around in my brain for some kind of psychoanalytical term for it, but that's probably just because I'm reading a lot about Freud at the moment, though more biography than theory -- it's 'research for my novel', ah-ha-ha-ha, but maybe one day, ho hum.)

But what I never really see with my writing is the moment when the light goes on in the other guy's eyes. I get that at work, sometimes, finding the right analogy that'll translate geekspeak into English, or showing somebody how to do something that they couldn't do before. It feels like a turning key, an unlocking. Which keeps making me think that maybe I should have joined the lemming-like rush into teaching... but, eh, well. Forking paths, "and the road not taken disappears into the path of least resistance".

I'd probably think more if I stopped thinking about thinking -- no longer sure if it's my besetting sin or my saving grace.

Ach, anyway, sorry for rambling at you like this. I guess I'll find a use for myself one day. :-)
