Tough Times

TIAPOS was fun last night, even though some of the readings were difficult. Once, everyone was younger. We wrote lighthearted stories, funny and heartwarming. Now several TIAPOSIANS have had intimate relationships with disease. These poems and stories are not lighthearted. They stab us where we live. It is never easy to separate the work from the person who wrote it.

It's easier to make a joke or shoot a video about your cat. Plot's heart goes out to his friends who are suffering, and he is grateful to them for writing as honestly as they do about the things we all wish we could hide away from.

But it was so great that you brought the mahmoul and read us the story.
