#147 -- Phantoms & Shadows

This week: things and people, times, places, events and how your memory has treated them. Are there people you try to remember more clearly, phantoms you'd like to reach back into the past and take a firm hold of? What do you remember of your early school years? College years? Your grandparents? First pets, first houses, first friends? Do you have a good or poor memory? If you could go back to any particular time/place to recall more vividly what it was like, what would that be?

Great prompt. I didn't even have to procrastinate until Sunday. Someone might actually read this one.

This is my first Sunday's Scribblings. As others have said, it was a great and thought provoking prompt. Keith, I'm with you. I scared myself writing my post as well. lol. I look forward to reading others' scribblings.

This prompt inspired an unusually sweet story about the band. Just because they're demons doesn't mean they have no sympathy when Ricky finds himself in a pensive mood: Tribute

And as an aside, I'm about to start a "Win a Valentine's Date" contest on the Maelstrom. The winner will get a prize and the chance to guest-blog about their "date" with bass player Bo Valentino, so stop by!

I have no idea of what is real and what is embelishment at this point. The memory stands complete as it changes through re-telling.

A little bit of nonsense! I hope you enjoy it.

Writing for this prompt was cathartic, as it helped me to get some much needed tension out of my system where I can see it and make more sense of it.

Mine's up (finally). Not a humorous one this time. It's a true story about an incident that occured shortly after my father's death.
