SWEET RENEWAL


It's always Spring, it's always Fall. Renewal isn't about a season, it's about a state of mind. It's about being. Below are short stories and poems dedicated to this theme. Please visit them and offer feedback. If you care to critique, make sure you phrase feedback in a constructive manner. You may find something fun, or something disturbing in the offerings below. One never knows. My own contribution will be up later today, but for now, here are some fine efforts. Enjoy.

Wow, so many people did the assignment. I'm going to have to start reading them. I really wanted to do it, but time escaped me again.

Hope all is good.

Big response! Wow, better get the snorkle and mask on, and get into it...

I read them all, and they were all wonderful. Will try to comment individually later.

Hey Turkey! You forgot me! I sent you an email yesterday (gasp)...are you ignoring me? :-)
Seriously, I managed to pump out something, so take a gander when you get a chance. And, may I be on that list too? I feel so alone, so, so lost...it's cold out here, so cold..

Thanks Stewart. Not only did I enjoy the task and the writing of my own piece, but I've been introduced to some tremendously talented new friends.

The only thing I've renewed lately is a library book.

Greetings...haven't been to your place in forever and what a great post to happen upon. Don't have time to read all of these now, but will certainly be back. I love assignments...reading them not necessarily doing them. Am flying out on my broom again, but hopefully will have blog-time next week. Have a Green Weekend.

An awesome visual I have for "renewal" is in Kill Bill Pt II, when beatrix is locked in the coffin. She's banging away at the boards for ages, the tension built by the flashback to her training, and then, when she finally gets through, the camera whooshes up through the earth. THAT is renewal!

Thanks for the assignment, Mr S.
