imperfect world

The Original Perfect Post Awards 02.08

I wish I weren't awarding this perfect post. I wish the thing that spawned it hadn't happened. But it did, and I had to recognize the beauty and generosity and honesty of Mad's many moods of miscarriage part 2. (Part 1 is here.)

More perfects posts are at Suburban Turmoil and Petroville. The last two years of perfect posts are now available in a library.

I wish it did not have to be awarded either. But she wrote it beautifully.

Excellent choice. Though like everyone else, I wish there hadn't been a need to write it.

I agree, I wish it hadn't.

But it was award-worthy.

Christine said...

yes--mad deserved this award but not the sadness that led to it.

Running on empty

Those posts were raw and stunning. But, like you say, I wish they didn't exist...

it was touching and incredible and I just love Mad so much that I wish it never had to happen.

Thank you, Sin. It's hard to know what to say b/c, well, you know...
