The Well Talked Back

When I started this I didn’t know what I was doing, and I still don’t. The first time I got an email that someone was following me, I thought Why?

I didn’t understand the tagging and I didn’t know who was looking at my posts, and it didn’t matter. It was like dropping a token into a dark well.

But as I got more followers, the well talked back. There were thumbnails, voices, faces coming out of the dark. And it raised the stakes for my writing: it’s given me a cause, by knowing there’s someone at the bottom of the well.

  2. What a great visual — throwing ideas into a well with unknown recipients.

  4. I’m a newbie too, learning as I go. Your metaphor strikes a deep, dark chord in me! Perhaps the sound of that penny being thrown into the well…..Bwahaha!
