Thursday Thoughts

09 Dec

After sitting with my blog open on a back tab, for three hours, I have concluded what first came to me in the middle of the night: I don’t want to use brain cells on a discussion of point of view and the poet is never the speaker, at least, not today. It is my birthday and so, dear readers, I am giving myself a present.

For you a Van Gogh painting. Work into the painting, either by describing what you see; or telling the story of the scene; or the scene we don’t see; or focusing on a detail and describing it, what its function is, the story behind it;

Tomorrow: Friday Freeforall. See you then.
