Just a little post today.
I’ve been working my way through Sarah Selecky’s Story Intensive course this fall, and this past two weeks we’ve been focusing on dialogue. I find myself thinking of how this works in stories I love, conversations I have, and as people call out to each other when I’m walking the dog.
I’ve been thinking about community more, and how we are building a community around story here. I realize one of the ways that I stay connected to my community day today is by texting little messages to friends and loved ones. The divine Hannah Marcotti issued a challenge to build a poem out of the communication threads we share with the world. So… here I am giving it a shot:
It’s nice and cool here
Can I talk you into sending that up here please
I have a strange blue bruise on my thigh though
Teehee, we’ll see!
You got the hook up, girl!
We are majorly fucking reminiscing from the lanai
that is perfection
it’s heartening to see stuff out there
be right there
I have something for you! I’ll bring it to the cottage
I absolutely will! I’m so excited!
