Pieces in Visual Verse


I have a piece in this month’s Visual Verse. You can read it here.

I had one in the April edition too that passed me by since I was out of touch with the world. You can read that one here.

Thank you VV editors for enjoying what I write.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

  1. That’s a beautiful meditation Jane.
    And I love the stream of consciousness riff on modern life. I had one in April too–I forgot to look as well.

    1. Thank you! The April one, I enjoyed writing, a bit of a stream of consciousness rant. May’s piece is gentler, more reflective. I can see why you would prefer it 🙂

  2. Am I at the top of the food chain? I feel like a victim, relegated to eating what I’m allowed to purchase, chemicals and all. We love all the big things we can get, I guess (appliances as big as walls), though what do they mean? Might we find other (smaller) ways to enjoy life?

    If the ancients were barbaric, they were closer to the realities of life. How quickly do we, as you say, sterilize what happens after death? Make death formally acceptable, which also means getting over it as soon as possible.

    These are two outstanding pieces. I’m glad they will reach another audience.

    1. Thank you. I’m glad you enjoyed them. You’re right, we are mixed up, think we know what we want and that it’s going to be more than we can have. If it’s attainable and simple, we trample over it to get at the massive screen.
      We do assume we are the most intelligent, cultivated, humane and compassionate form of existence ever. We ought to look in the mirror more often.
