October 2022 Digest

Suddenly cold, suddenly time flies.

The end of the year always goes by more quickly than the rest of the year. Time has always been relative, with or without science.

I look at the blog entries. Without them, I would not have been able to recall the specific contexts and feelings that I felt while writing them. And without this digest, I wouldn’t have looked back.

The purpose of this digest is mainly for organization, not rumination. Still, looking back at past bits and snippets of myself has an odd effect on me. Good or bad, I don’t know. It is what it is, and it is an effect–it isn’t something that can be ignored.

Fall is the time of transition, and with the seasons, I transition as well. To what, I do not know.

Pure Fiction

🌹 🐁 👻

The closet swallowed his little sister. It really did. And yet, a year later, after it spat her back out, Elmer Warde must lie: I imagined it. I am insane.

This, after people suspected him of kidnapping his own sister.

And after they accused him of trying to murder her.

This is the ironic aftermath of a horror story that gets “solved”: the loved ones of the missing person (now missing no more) face a fallout. Elmer’s only hope of staying in touch with his little sister seems to be the insanity defense.

But must he settle for a sort-of-happy ending, or can he hope for a happy ending?
