Normally I keep my thoughts on black dog to this blog but for a very specific reason I broke that rule today.
It is only when you open your veins and bleed onto the page a little that you establish contact with your reader. Wrote Paul Gallico in "Confessions of a Story Writer".
Sometimes you need to get a little red upon your readers.
The main gist of the article was: "The sky won't fall forever" which is my way of reminding myself that it's can't rain all the time. The quote about rain is something that has lived with me since I first watched the movie "The Crow".
It's like the idea that it will not rain forever has carried me along like a universal truth, because maybe it is. Or maybe that film just came along at just the right time to say some things I could not give voice to. "The Crow" is one of those things that has always stayed with me and not for the reasons that most of the mainstream could ever understand.
Perhaps I really did just want to be more honest with my blogging or maybe this was just a cry for help that could safely be ignored. Then again the message was not to loose hope and as "Hope Is Posssible" points out:
So if that blog post of mine was a cry for help it was a cry for help in not forgetting that the storm will end one day.
Until then there is always time to lie a few more times and say everything is "fine".
Here's a pretty link to the article in question.
Don't let me forget...
