Fandango’s Provocative Question #92

Fandango wants to know: https://fivedotoh.com/2020/10/21/fandangos-provocative-question-92/
Do you blog anonymously? Why or why not?

I had thought about this not only when starting my blog but also throughout this whole time of being an active blogger. I do not blog anonymously. I guess I don’t because when I started this whole blogging experience it was around losing my husband and my son. I didn’t really know what blogging was beyond “telling your story”. As time went on, I started enjoying all of the challenges and different forms of writing. I think what I write would not insult anyone, so why change now.

On the subject of anonymity, I don’t always tell readers where in the US I live. I guess if someone reads enough of my posts they probably know. Unfortunately, with Google and whoever knows what else, anyone could drive up to my door and I would never know how they found me.

I respect whatever anyone chooses but I do have to admit, I am more curious than a cat and it kills me a little (just joking, but sort of) to not know who people really are.

Eugi’s Weekly Prompt – “Ghostly” – October 19, 2020

First I want to “reblog” a poem I read today that I thought was phenomenal. I wanted to do a true reblog but I just don’t like how reblogs come out looking like my writing. Anyhow, check this out: Farrago Express https://farragoexpress.wordpress.com/2020/10/20/links-in-the-chain/ The title is Links in the Chain.

So now for my contribution:

Living Hell

From out of the shadows there come the souls 

Of the children who have been lost in life 

They seek out peace and a comforting world 

Where, for them, there is no longer strife. 

What has taken them you may ask? 

Indeed, I wish I could tell. 

To lose a little one, any which way 

Is to a parent, a living hell.
