Well it’s the roaring/flapping twenties, a new year, a new decade and possibly a new opportunity for me and my long-suffering travelling companion – young Miss Amy Grace.
Yes, dear folk we are once again indulging in the self-flagellation, disappointment and delusion that is submitting our fayre for thirty second scan scrutiny.
Rejection has thus far followed a pattern of silence; comments politely saying ‘no not for me’ are less than 50% return on investment.
Yet still I’m again setting myself up for rejection.
I’ve read biographies, looked at profiles, tried to select fertile soil…
For my work I know I have all the bias of an indulgent parent seeing their child playing the robin in the school Christmas play. My child, the skinny brown tights and red jumper, my child alone carries the tale, not the spotlight hogging tea towel wearing pillow up jumper pairing – my child is the undoubted star of the show!
Delusion is my illusion (another musical reference?), but if we don’t offer nobody can eventually see with my eyes, read the tale that is worth both telling and reading?
Amy is a story worthy of reading.
I’ve started to tell it; we just need folk to read it.
It is indeed what it is – Inshallah إِنْ شَاءَ ٱللّٰهُ
