Mannequin Monday – If people don’t die right, they haunt
Our mannequin, our framework, will perhaps remain unclothed this week. It’s all about not dying right, about absence. Haunting.
Quotes from Wynton Marsalis and Eddie Glaude.
And a story of mine, inspired by the quotes.
Mannequin Monday – Here’s Joe Cool…
Here’s Joe Cool, appearing in the first Mannequin Monday blog post of the new year. This week, an insightful article from The Atlantic on Charles Schulz’s character Snoopy. Snoopy, “realizing that he’s tired and cold and lonely and that it’s suppertime.”
And, as always, a writing exercise of my own.
Mannequin Monday – Nocturnes
This week our mannequin is clothed with words and draped with sound.
The verbal focus is Nocturnes: Five Stories of Music and Nightfall. The auditory note comes from jazz vocalist Veronica Swift.
And I again offer a bit of my own writing: “The Necklace.”
