Sue for Peace
Note: this came out of my own frustrations with the situation in the Middle East and a student's inquiry into my thoughts and feelings about it. I know that all I have is a page and my imagination to launch a pretty weak arrow at a beast that will not go away, but I have to say something...and I have.
You Need to Hear This
Note: I am a little late to the challenge, but I am intrigued... Dear Heather Hubler, I was very interested in this particular challenge. After the last few weeks, I feel like I deserve the right to rant, no matter what the restrictions might be.
The End of the Long Dash
Now, I am very upset. From Wikipedia: The National Research Council Time Signal was Canada's longest running radio program, begun November 5, 1939 until its final broadcast on 9 October, 2023. Broadcast daily shortly before 13:00 Eastern Time across the CBC Radio One network, it lasted between 15 and 60 seconds, ending exactly at 13:00...The segment was discontinued in part due to concerns about accuracy as the CBC's feed is distributed over the internet and satellite as well as conventional radio.

In the station, he could sit in peace and wait for the train that would take him away from his idiot boss, annoying coworkers, and the other problems he had with commuting into the city to earn a living.

I have been working on two separate pieces and am near completion on both of them, but I also made a list of people which I cannot ignore. One thing about travelling and having an interest in art and culture is that you want to know who did what and how they did what. And if you get the chance, you want the chance to talk to them.
What lies on the road? Shadow, light, a shape... Is that...? The siren wails... Okay, I have been away for a while, but I like this prompt. It is a good way for me to get back to things. I have been working on a few pieces for challenges and my head has been in a very different space this week. I hope you like my Friday the 13th contribution...!
