The Blogaround

  • From Ren Faires to political interpretations of children’s literature, Storiteller covered a range of subjects in the past two weeks:
    • After revisiting three different places recently, she reflected upon the changes she saw in her son over the course of a year in Deja Vu All Over Again.
    • In the ongoing but very occasional Book Club series of reinterpreting children’s books from overly literary or political points of view, she looks at Why Richard Scarry’s Busytown Has the Worst City Government Ever.
    • Having attended the local Renaissance Faire (a fantasy event where a space “becomes” a highly romanticized, fantastical version of a pseudo-Renaissance town) twice with a toddler, she has some recommendations for those considering the same in Fun at the Renaissance Faire for All Ages.

    • Most stuff was about the Halloween contest story, Life After, mentioned last week
      • Chapter 1: Time Changes – shows a future (2029) hero and villain reacting to the latter’s boss changing the timeline in a way that reverses the world they knew, while in the past, 2004, people are faced with the event that changed the timeline
      • Chapter 2: Dying Light – has the characters on earth in 2029 and 2004 trying to survive while another character tries to make it back to earth after being stranded in the afterlife.
      • Then I did a meta-post on the metaphysics of the setting, in part if anyone is interested, in part so that people offering helpful ideas (thanks, by the way) could have a better idea of how I was looking at it.  Very much about cycles of life and death and growth and decay with the truly bad things being the ones that try to stop or unbalance the cycle.  I encourage anyone to use said information to deliver additional helpful ideas.
    • In general life stuff I noted that where I am the cold times have begun, I asked for advice on catching mice without killing them, I noted that my sinus cavities appeared to be trying to kill me (thankfully the condition did not persist),and I now have a new new new computer because the double new computer to replace the single new computer didn’t work as advertised.
