Tale Weaver 30.09.21 – In the Dark

Hello everyone and welcome to this week’s Tale Weaver.

A late post as I had to bring my son to his follow-up for his broken wrist. Everything seems to be healing nicely.

A few weeks ago, I invited you to weave a tale about the absence of sound in one’s life. I wasn’t expecting so many to actually have experienced the loss of sound. And I want to thank you all again for sharing your stories.

We rely on our senses so heavily on a daily basis. Like sight.

I remember a French blind singer who explained during an interview that he could experience an eclipse even though he couldn’t see it; he described the changes in temperature, the way sounds evolved – birds stopping their chirping, nature kinda slowing down – how his own body reacted. That was fascinating to me. That must have been some 20 odd years ago.

So for today’s tale, I’d like you to write a story where a character has no sense of sight, or has lost it. Or maybe how it would feel to you if you did become blind. I’ve got spectacles myself but even though I can’t see too well without I’m not blind… so yes a story on a loss of senses, or the reclaiming of it… Your choice.

In summary

  • Go where the prompt takes you and have fun!
  • Prose, poetry, fable… please share your stories in whatever style works for you.
  • Keep your stories/quests/tales below 1000 words 
  • Post it on your blog and tag it MLMM, Tale Weaver, Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie
  • Be sure to leave a pingback or a link so we (I) can read your contribution

    Hi Stephanie, glad your son’s wrist is mending well. I’m reblogging a TW from 2017 for your challenge this week as it involves sight (even though it was for Touch). Hope you enjoy it

    Glad your son’s wrist is healing well. I often have to keep my right eye closed — vision is poor in it, glasses can only correct to a point. Makes my left eye work a lot harder to adjust. So, monovision, strangely, works better:
    My tale is about a fictional character’s loss of sight:
