Mother May I (May 2014)
THEME: Mother May I
In 2000 words or less, write the first, last or only time you had to ask permission for anything — from anyone
IMPORTANT — the theme reflects the “concept” — the person to whom the permission request is directed need not be your mother — could be anyone.
Personally, I imagined the game played as a kid (called by the same name as our theme) — to me the game relates to being repressed and the required permission request — the power given over to someone else to deny or allow movement, change, action.
HOWEVER — Catherin emphasized to me that she doesn’t want to restrict how you might interpret her very open theme — so meditate on it and pull out all the stops, have fun and send me your stories and poems.
