You’d think there would be a newer meme to cover this time of the year.
Hmm, how hard could it be? Tell you what, we’ll just create one, call it the Flashback meme: post your last sentence from the last post for each month of 2011.
That should give you a snapshot of your mental health last year. Or a way to evaluate the dosage of your meds. Here…as embarrassing as this may be, I’ll go first:
January: Why should I blame her that she filled my days
February: With misery, or that she would of late
March: Have taught to ignorant men most violent ways,
April: Or hurled the little streets upon the great,
May: Had they but courage equal to desire?
June: What could have made her peaceful with a mind
July: That nobleness made simple as a fire,
August: With beauty like a tightened bow, a kind
September: That is not natural in an age like this,
October: Being high and solitary and most stern?
November: Why, what could she have done, being what she is?
December: Was there another Kansas City for her to burn?
See? Dead simple. 1
