Greetings, esteemed reader(s). It’s rudyblues here. Time again for another edition of
everyone’s some people’s rudyblues’ favorite feature, Throwback Thursday! Let’s take a walk down Memory Lane (hopefully avoiding Alzheimer’s Alley) and check out a chestnut from the past.
As some of you know (unwillingly, perhaps), Throwback Thursday is a recurring feature here at Rudy’s Ruminations. The intent is to reacquaint my gentle reader(s) with some of my earlier, unknown work. That and I’m looking for ways to keep slacking off.
Here’s how this Throwback Thursday thing works. I take this nifty boilerplate post I’ve created, add the date, a link to a previous post, and a short paragraph extolling the virtues of the previously unrecognized gem you have the opportunity to read. The Throwback Thursday post shows up in your reader stream, you click the link to the previous post, and you enjoy the (not so) great literary stylings of rudyblues. I get views, clicks, and possibly visits. You get . . . well, I’m not exactly clear on what you get, I was hoping to come up with something more for you, perhaps later. So here we go.
What better subject matter for a retrospective feature than childhood memories. This is one I wrote back in 2015 as an exercise in using imagery to evoke a sense of place. I hope you enjoy it.
