Coming of Age in an Age of Logic (Short Story) - 1/1/2007 7:04:21 AM|
The disjointed conversation that makes perfect sense reminds me of the ones I had in college. You do it well. The story has the classic short story form of the setup, the buildup and the payoff. I'm an English major too. To make a long story short I liked "Coming of Age in an Age of Logic". The university experience can provide a lot of good material for writing short stories.

It seems you have/had a very nice relationship with your dad. I'm working really hard to have such as you describe with my two daughters. Thank you for sharing this, Sara. Love and peace to you,

This one made me smile, enjoyed the bonding of father & daughter sharing a new skill together. The ending was perfect!

And Louis Armstrong ain't bad either..
Searching for the Grand Unified Theory of Everything (Poetry) - 7/20/2006 1:48:15 PM
From Euclid's Sacred Geometry to Einstein's Theory of Relativity...
They are all playing at being God..
And God is not mocked....
The late and great Carl Jung when asked near the end of his life if he belived in God...
Answered affirmatively " I Know There Is A God "...
I like your grandmother's narrative..." God is Implicated in Everything "..
night terrors (Poetry) - 6/15/2006 10:57:47 AM
This is most compelling, Sara. It is my type of poetry even though it's not pretty. I'm quite sure it isn't supposed to be. But it is powerful stuff. Thank you for sharing it. Respectfully with love and peace,
Advice to a Green Balloon (Poetry) - 6/12/2006 10:53:47 AM
Powerfully effective verses that reach the depth of the reader's soul (if he/she is paying attention) and elicit a reaction. I love the way you write, Sara. Love and peace,
Field Guide to Wildlife: Frogs (Poetry) - 6/11/2006 10:52:58 PM
This leaves me unable to breathe properly. I just wish to make you understand that you've changed me with your verses. Love and peace to you, Sara,
Field Guide to Wildlife: Frogs (Poetry) - 6/11/2006 8:11:12 PM
This is stark horror and my heart hurts for you!
I hope you find the key to forgiveness for your own peace.
Field Guide to Wildlife: Frogs (Poetry) - 6/11/2006 7:49:52 PM
When I was a kid I used to adore frogs. I would sit in the creek looking at all the rocks and waves.It was heaven. Me and frogs get along good..Nice write..
Enough (Poetry) - 6/10/2006 9:11:51 AM
A very painful but superb write Sara, excellent work.
Enough (Poetry) - 6/10/2006 5:23:25 AM
Sex. A beautiful human experience. Sex. Ugly beyond description. You write of the latter and you write it with conviction, and that, my dear Sara, is sad, because no one should ever have that experience.
Waiting to Die (Poetry) - 6/9/2006 6:49:17 PM
...and for my mother who gave up ... and who knows why not me? Oh Sara. You write from your whole being. Such honesty and "in your face" truth of the way you feel. All I can respectfully express is awe and silence after this. Love, peace, and strength to you,
If Again This Apparition Come (Poetry) - 6/9/2006 6:45:55 PM
For me (and I am quite certain, for most others too), there is poetry and there is POETRY. I don't have to express where yours fits in, Sara. You write these creations because you are compelled. They come from your soul and the deepest of what you feel and desire to express and to share. I can (if I may respectfully) relate. Love and peace to you,
Enough (Poetry) - 6/9/2006 6:42:16 PM
This is painful to read (in a most respectful way) because it reaches right down to the soul, Sara. It's like the most fire-tested gem that comes out whole and unequaled. I wish you love, peace, and strength (although the latter you seem to have),
Enough (Poetry) - 6/9/2006 4:04:04 PM
OMG, you have done good, yet this hurts and brings tears for your pain..
Enough (Poetry) - 6/9/2006 3:50:19 PM
You can always extract good from the bad...
And this is a magnificent extraction of light from darkness !
Rock (Poetry) - 6/8/2006 6:34:25 PM
metaphorically effective poem probing the depths of the psyche ...
