A bunch of tales I wanted to share with you

A tale I read

Death Dream by Scott Hutchison
[Death Dream by Scott Hutchison]

A tale I heard

Actor Cillian Murphy on story:

“I’ve loved story in every form since I was a kid. The emotion is the thing that is key for me. If I don’t feel altered by the story, then it hasn’t worked for me. That’s my preference: that you do feel completely altered by what you’ve seen, and you’re so immersed in the story and the truth of the story and the truth of the performance – that to me is real storytelling”

A tale I saw

Sweet Tin by Joel Auterson

A tale I wrote

He is wearing a jumper
I own and is roughly
twice my age. He is
whistling. He is
swinging his arms in time
with his feet or the beat
of his heart. He is 
the feeling of comfort: 
comfort in skin and sky 
and company and jumper. 
He is.
