Some pieces get curated immediately, others take a while, but yes, if it takes a few weeks, the effect isn’t quite what it could be, and viral spreading is unlikely.

It’s always good to see a piece that you’ve worked hard on to get up to curation standard actually be curated, but so many times nothing happens.

Oh well.

I need to change a few words in my poem, but I want to keep the last edit as a time marker so I can tell how long it has languished. I tried to expand on Geetika’s images to bring in the concept of using the sky as a reminder of hopes and dreams, much like I use the night sky to remember those I’ve known who are no longer with us. But kept this “offscreen” as it were, rather than saying it out loud.
