I can't help but read when I see 'New Orleans'. And because you craft words in such a way... curiosity becomes delight.
Thank you :)
Wow! Where did that come from?
You have never failed to deliver great work. I wish I could peep into your mind.
You simply know how to evoke one's imagination.
I found the reference to the middle step.
The angel's feet are planted on the top step, which is bright red (like blood); the middle step is cracked and dark in color; the bottom step is made of white marble, so pure that it reflects images. The steps, from bottom to top, appear to represent three stages of penance: recognition of one's sins, heartfelt contrition, and satisfaction.
That is a beautiful way of saying we have journeyed from the white marble, to the cracked second step. And we are that bit closer to the Angel.
I'm blown away, borked. I don't usually explain what I'm trying to say because I respect the reader's experience and what they bring to what they read. That you'd even care enough to wonder at the allusions...how can anyone who writes not be jazzed about that? I doubt my feet will touch the floor today. Thank you :)
Hmm, I like this. It's soothing and reassuring but not in any way I can stick my thumb on and say, "Yep, that's it." I like it.
yep, sounds like all the break ups i've ever cried over. the frustration, the scripted words, the calm after the storm when you think over what you just said and did...
