Hence the title of the post: circle or spiral. I much prefer spirals as they expand or contract a thing, while going in circles doesn't do much at all except wear out the rotation and things get flat after they are exhausted. There are all kinds of ways to present something but the trick is not to repeat the same thing in another way...you gotta do something entirely different...but first and foremost is bringing attention to the style of thinking that is used to actually read something.
Hmm...no...I guess it is the style of thinking used to actually write something...maybe no more free-styling...certainly not airline safety card with diagrams and 'Do as I do in case of emergency'...referencing books or persons or such is the real arbitrary way as folk have their own books and people to counter with...humour mostly works but it has to be such that everyone gets off the bat and not a type that folk aren't sure about. A clownish-way but not with a bucket of confetti as raining on someone's parade is not a good look if they have a wedding to go to...puts them in a bad frame of mind.
Acting all 'My IQ is such-n-such' makes folk need to take one down a peg or two...being abrasive makes folk need to apply a muzzle...lauding it over with ye olde style language and wordly compositions is quite out of place in a modern mind...no contrived topics where a particular meaning is hidden until the last moment...and certainly being silent and popping into an other's topic to counter with personal or referenced brilliance could have a slap upside the head by someone who's punchline was just destroyed.
Maybe the style should be business as usual...but blog-like bloats someone's goat. I do like to offer a view on something pondered, but then that is just a personal point of view and folk like views that are theirs, not someone-else's...bugger. All I get drawn back to is the short play with a couple of characters and anyone feeling like a walk-on part please do so. Seems to be the best form of entertainment and a sharing of knowledge that folk might subscribe to.
I'll start with a lateral thinking puzzle about a fish out of water. Hmm...nope, that was yesterday. Maybe I'll let the doors open, air the place out a bit, and see if someone sticks their head in to see what's going on inside. Cheers Eddie...thanks for popping by. Care to take a seat on stage instead of in the audience?
Start a show-n-tell about the time you got over your fear of flying by trying hypnosis then pills then a rubber band then not going anywhere at all before tricking yourself that it was just a train in the air...gone off the tracks, so to speak...and now you fly anywhere. Folk might empathize with that and offer their own wondrous tale of overcoming a fear. I'll just nod my head now and then, mumble some encouragement, ask if anyone needs a drink or ice-cream, and point out an audience member who looks a little shy and give them a mask for a moment as they input their own tale of similar woes-before-wonders.
Maybe it'll be an Open Mic night; no violin players allowed.
