The Short of it:
Tenth Daughter of Memory Theme this week: White Lies Belie a Darker Truth. When I read that theme I could think of only one thing. A short snippet of a song that my husband and daughter recorded a while back. You may not think it fits and that's fine. And, I'm not sure if you should really vote for it because I didn't write it. I'm just sharing it for something different and, like I said, it was the first thing I thought of when I read the theme
The Long of it:
The other day I was sitting in my living room while my son was drawing in his sketch book and my daughter was working on a poem or a song; she writes both frequently. Brian was either playing his guitar or researching music online. It struck me because I did not come from a creative family. As a family of engineers, there was no encouragement in the creative process. To be fair, there was no discouragement either. My parents supported my decision to go into theater but I think it's telling that I'm in one of the more non-creative jobs in that field.
The few posts I have done for 10th Daughter of Memory have been so much fun. I thought I would die of embarrassment because my writing is so poor; I have little experience with that genre. So, I did what anyone in my position would do, I asked my creative family. They have offered great suggestions for the previous posts I have submitted. I even wrote a poem along the theme of White Lies Belie a Darker Truth and both my daughter and husband nixed is as too cliche. And they were right. So in full disclosure, my 10th Daughter of Memory posts are not entirely my own which I guess is why I feel it's okay to post a song I had nothing to do with. And that is the darker truth...
