    In your garden. Prefer lantana but star flowers and sea holly will do, too.

    Ohmygoodness, I would love to, but I have this thing called a deadline fast approaching. If I get my project turned in soon enough, I'm hoping I can at the least join in this month with a submission.



    (Okay, you say, so go get it done! I would love to, but it's 2 am and I just don't produce well after midnight.
    Sleep? what's that? I gave it up years ago...)

    April's Literary Maneuvers comp, "The Butterfly Effect" is now live.

    Let chaos reign!

    Beauty is nothing but the beginning of terror which we are barely able to endure, and are awed,
    because it serenely disdains to annihilate us.
    - Rainer Maria Rilke, "Elegy I"

    Is this fire, or is this mask?
    It's the Mantasy!

    C'mon everybody, don't need this crap.

    Come one, come all, let your butterflies free - and have an EFFECT! Write, submit.

    When the night has come
    And the land is dark
    And the moon is the only light we'll see
    No, I won't be afraid, no I won't be afraid
    Just as long as you stand by me.

    Submit! The window of opportunity to effect global change on a massive scale from the tiniest actions grows, well, ever tinier. Submit!

    Heck of a showing this month! I count a dozen so far...
    My blog- Hidden Content thoughts on trauma and healing through psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy

    "When a child is abused, he or she will often internalise that abuse as deserved. It is a cruel reality that a child needs the parent so much, is evolutionarily programmed to trust them so implicitly, that when a parent is abusive the child will take the blame rather than completely upend their world and blame the person they depend on for survival." -velo

    Ok comp’s closed everyone. We judges will tot up our scores. Meanwhile, if you could go ahead & come up with some prompts for May, and think about whether you’d like to judge, you know ... that’d be great...

    Suggest:
    leave-taking

    Second:
    Notre Dame

    Notre Dame is French for “Our Lady”, right? Maybe go with the translation to create ambiguity and avoid ten stories about a specific church? Just a thought.

    Monument
