Got this comment/query from Talooolah. Since it’s been a while since I’ve written on WordPress, I thought I’d answer the question here instead of in comments.
who are ye?
I am a talooolah we speak the same language it seems but perhaps you have more soul.
hollah at a playah
I’m a logger.
LOL no wait – that’s Ray Steven’s The Haircut song..
The truth is?
I’m a blogger.
I used to write a blog over on another bloghost before it closed. Now I write here. Sometimes.
If you are the Taloolah that I wrote about you’d be a metaphor. Now it’s true that a metaphor can do amazing human-looking things, but those actions only look like the activities of a real person. In reality it’s a made up world by some writer. Not the actions of a real person. I don’t think that’s what you mean. I’m thinking that you’re talking about a tangible Taloolah. A real person. In that case, well I’d be mighty surprised if you were the person who I was referring too.
The only case that I know of where a metaphor comes to life is in a story is in the mythological story, Pygmallion.
Now it’s possible that you mean that after reading what I wrote you feel as if we are kindred spirits. Can’t agree with or disagree if that’s true. Writing is an imperfect passion. As much as you or I hope to write the perfect words to express what we believe? There is alway the chance to be misunderstood. I’d have to know you before I could agree or disagree.
The only thing I know for sure is that the posts that you’ve read are incomplete. The words however are original. I am the author unless noted. I write fiction and poetry. Some essays on politics.
This is 12 dogs and a blog.
Fact and fiction co exist here.
If you don’t know which is which.
Thank you for asking, Taloolah.
