Enough Personification!

This blog post almost eluded my attention – the trickster.

We’ve had company this week, and are still in the midst of settling, so I lost track of the days, and here it is Sunday already.  To be honest, I am happy to done with this challenge and move on to the next.  Focusing on personification has caused everything around me to take on a personality, and I can’t get it to quiet down.

It started with my art critiquing me, and before I knew it the whole house was conspiring against me.

“I’m wrapping up the challenge now,” I warned the television when it refused to turn on.  “So you can go back to being inanimate.  WiFi too.  Stop showing off how much control you have over me and settle down.”

Sgoeil didn’t have this problem.  She found a nice Stick Man and happily befriended him – a very amicable relationship.

Stuff and What If… in An Interview with Time left us with a reverence for our relationship to this aspect of life.

Proscenium’s 2 For the Doe offered sweet insight into the intimate lives of deer.

Seems I lost sight of the fact that personification is an effective way to insert meaning into a text.  I took it all too personally.

Thanks to all who participated for balancing out my efforts.  See you tomorrow morning for a new challenge!

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.
