This is a creative writing assignment. We're looking at 'place' in writing, and had to do a field trip. I decided to go to my brother's grave, but soon realised that my memories carried much more weight. This is the finished result. I hope you enjoy, and feel free to give feedback! For the geeks among you, the commentary can be found here: http://www.scribd.com/doc/47697124/Reflective-Commentary-for-Please-do-not-bend

That was very touching and the presentation only added to the personal nature of the piece. Well done. My sympathy for your loss, my joy for your gain in having him while you did.

The writings continue to honor him and this is the part of the nightmare that resembles a dream. How blessed to have had him as a brother for a while.

> "I wanted to show the mashing together of thoughts in the brain. Even within a single memory, facts can be muddled, other thoughts seeping through and interrupting" This is spot on. The non-linear processes of the brain are ill-served by plodding sentences. How we arrange our words on the page can suggest these non-linear processes - your CD script does this well
marcnash added this note
I think all the techniques work well, particularly the circular CD writing. But you can go so much further potentially than computer fonts. You can do modern day majuscules (like the illuminated manuscripts of old). You can do like ransom note style, where every letter is a different font. You can do acrostic script - from your preamble to this piece that you tweeted a link, you wrote >

I'd really like a few people's opinions in the techniques in this pieces, I know you can't hold it, but what sort of effects are you getting from the scans?
Shyam Adrift added this note
tender, heartfelt, a treasure! :)

he still shines - "who brightened our lives / all too briefly" - requiescat in pace and may you rest assured

As one of the geeks among us, beautiful reflections. I've lost three of six siblings now. It's never to late to look back and smile.
