Relatively Random Tidbits

Wow, Florida has some amazing weather. I just wrote a nonfiction piece about an experience I literally just had with that same said weather. I can't wait to share it with all of you, but I think that I may have a special surprise for you all in the near future about it. So stay tuned, and I'll clue you in soon. Yes, I know, I'm a tease, but this is worth waiting a few days for. At least for me. :-P

And the other tidbit I felt like sharing this Friday night is, the other day I responded to a comment and for some reason as I was responding I got to thinking about Joyce Carol Oates' short story "Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been". And in the comment I gave a link to where you could find it on her official page and read it, because if you haven't you definitely should. Since I'm probably the only person in the world that keeps track of all the comments I get on my page I thought it bared repeating so...

If you have never read "Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been?" Go and do so. Oates' use of symbology is absolutely mind blowingly good. Here's the link: Link!

I bet the weather was great.

My goodness, Joyce Carol Oates. That short story of hers has been a favorite of mine for as long as I can remember. I've read it three different times at three different stages of my life. My latest was in college when I was taking a rhetoric class. We had this special project of making a short film of it.

If you want to see it, check it out here:

It's the video called, "Where have you been?"

Man, that's awesome. It's been a favorite story of mine for a long time too. It's definitely not an easy read, but it speaks volumes.

Thanks for sharing that video you made, Rob. You guys did a great job. The text bubbles were a nice addition. The scene, you labeled as your favorite, with Connie picking up the phone was certainly the prettiest, but I'd have to say my favorite was the end shot, of your hands.

Great interpretation of the story, for sure. Thanks for coming by and sharing it.
