There is screaming in my brain. Stories and prose that are trying to get out. Sometimes I can’t figure out how to put them down. I can’t make the screaming go away. But I don’t want to. It’s my home.

I need validation, a visceral reaction from you. Without it I don’t exist.  But maybe that’s all right. Because sometimes I’m tired of me. Exhausted from the endless tales and always, always needing someone to tell me ‘well done’.  

If I can’t make you laugh, can’t make you cry, can’t make you react, I have wasted my time.  And yours. And for that, I am sorry.

    Penni, you always make laugh as you see all the absurdities around us.

    Thank for not using “alright”.

      And of course I would post that with a typo.

        I didn’t even notice until you pointed it out!

    You have once again COMPLETELY failed at wasting my time.

      Oh Larry, and you have failed to irritate me.
