OK. I am the contrarian today, Americanising Desi.

I normally really enjoy your creative puffs, but this one leaves me a bit cold because the words are used in such unusual fashions that it doesn't really make sense to me.

I have to ask myself how are the fates victimised?

What is being hankered for, as one hankers for something, but I don't know what that thing is.

Further, the lack of the object of the hankering further confuses, for me, the implicit subordinate clause "in murky waters"... and what is that subordinate too?

I don't know.

So, for me, this one left me a bit cold.

I figure, possibly very wrongly, that people truly want feedback in these circles. So, I try to give constructive feedback. Maybe I shouldn't... and I really like a lot of the other ideas and formulations that you produce.

So, today, this piece was a bit disappointing, to me, and I wanted to explain why, as I always think that that is the point of this 3WW creative circle.

But, in a few hours there will be a new 3WW and, normally, I really like your work.

Sorry to be contrarian. It must be in my nature.

Chris, I really appreciate your honesty and thank you for being so bold and so critical.

I am sorry to be so disappointing.
Will try not to repeat next time.

really!

Dear Americanising Desi,

I am glad that you took that well and are not overly upset.

I would much rather be honest than not, otherwise I throw a bit of myself away, and, generally, apart from the dross, I don't like doing that.

Plus, although I am a bad commenter, as in I frequently forget (almost always would be the truth) to comment, I do visit. And so I know what you are capable of.

What a pompous ass I am. What does it really matter what I think?

You know what I think, AD? I think it is great that anybody posts at all, and that we all try to enrich our own lives by embracing creative games, and that we are willing to expose ourselves, through our works, to the world at large.

And then my desire to achieve citius, altius, fortius comes into play and I insist in taking that to the world.

Rightly or wrongly, it is what I do.

So, I am glad that you were accepting of my little mind fart, my prior comment, and that you did not take great umbrage.

Cheers,
Chris
