So I've been thinking about Fuzzmail (www.fuzzmail.org... a site that records everything you write, your first thought and what you delete or change.

Here's a visual poem for you, based on revision vs. first thought.  It plays with that idea on how wording things differently can create certain images of people or events.  I am always interested in "appearances" vs. "real life" or "real people/real families."

So here's a look at a love letter on what was thought, and what was actually said....

I must say, this was pretty fun to do...

That was hysterical. I thought the line, "I wait on the toilet" was perfect. Why'd you chage it?;)

Wow - that was so insightful & FUN! What a brilliant site. I kept giggling at the words that would appear...then disappear. Truly a window into so much behind the words.
