Sunday Scribblings: The Road To Goodbye
At first I thought, why not write a story. A story that had nothing to do with me and everything to do with some one other then me.
The cursor blinked.
Then I thought perhaps a goodbye poem, rich in imagery and a pint of pity for some one who was saying goodbye.
I came up with this:
Going down sidewalks
Please note its spells goodbye…its one of those…um…acronyms?
The poem sucked so, I went in search of whether what I did was an acronym or something else and discovered the word RETROnym. Um, excuse me, but bling of a bell is so retronym. (I can’t get Astro’s voice from the Jetson out of my head when I read this word).
Then I decided to look up quotes to inspire a more sophisticated prose on the subject of goodbye, and found these quotes:
I also l came across this handy little quote, “May you never forget what is worth remembering, nor ever remember what is best forgotten.”
Yeah, sounds about right.
But in the end, I was no closer to an entry about goodbye. I did find this quote by Henry David Thoreau: "Nothing makes the earth seem so spacious as to have friends at a distance; they make the latitudes and longitudes".
