Hello everyone and Welcome to the first Sunday Confessional!
For this first prompt on Confessional Sunday, I would like us all to get creative, get free, and for it to feel inviting. That is why I would like to invite you to Introduce yourself.
You can present your material in any form, be it written words, photographs, a mix and match of the two or three or just about anything, topic being Introducing yourself; saying Hello.
Feel free to, if lacking current inspiration, but wanting to participate re-visit or re-share a poem/creation, which you feel like could represent you and let us get to know a little bit about it. Consider it an opportunity to show a snippet of yourself.
As an inspiration or idea, in the form of a prompt, it makes me think of Lexicons ( Autograph book). If you have never heard of this concept before, here is a short explanation on what it is:
“An autograph book is a book for collecting the autographs of others. Traditionally they were exchanged among friends, colleagues, and classmates to fill with poems, drawings, personal messages, small pieces of verse, and other mementos. Their modern derivations include yearbooks, friendship books, and guest books. They were popular among university students from the 15th century until the mid-19th century, after which their popularity began to wane as they were gradually replaced by yearbooks.”
I remember finding my cousin’s in some throwaway box during a move and I read it page to page, these questions and answers by random strangers that meant too little or perhaps too much. I can tell you one thing: I am pretty sure all of them enjoyed leaving those little snippets of themselves on some page. So I made my own, and still keep it, and read it on occasion, little jots done by classmates and cousins I hassled to write themselves in, but also, stuff I wrote.
As a prompt inspiration, if you feel inclined, you could use the Lexicon as an inspiration. You can approach questions and/or answers via prose or poetry alike.
Once you are done preparing and posting your entry, please include it in the Mr Linky below, and have a browse at the other entries.
Looking forward to reading you and :”Hello!”
