I assume that no one has received anything yet? I hope that everthing is ok with Pawel.

Since it doesn't seem pawel will ever follow through on this here was my short story entry. My appologies to De Kolta. Enjoy.


Hidden Mother/Missing Mothers

A curious photo, is it not. The photo is Georges only memory of his mother. A seated woman covered head to foot under a black cloth, in her lap she holds her precious child. George would spend a life time staring at this photo vainly trying to image the features of the mother he never got to know.

The year was 1884. De Kolta was on to something big, even if he only had the first part down. Something the world had never witnessed before.

A camera documented this moment. A bright flash, the ping of a wedding ring hitting the floor, and poof she was gone. It was an act of pure magic without any trickery. If only De Kolta knew then how to make a vanished woman re-appear Georges life would of been a happy one. It would take another two years of experiments. Until then De Kolta would continue to pose as a humble photographer to unsuspecting happy young mothers.

Another example about how people use the Café to STEAL ideas from members with promises and lies. I have no dog in this show but between this and the Mark Elsdon ruse, I would have to be very sure of who I'm trusting around here. Why aren't people ostracized by the community and never allowed to become members in the first place? Their criminal type behavior seems to go back a long way?
No matter how many times you say the wrong thing, it will NEVER be right.

If I'm not responding to you? It's because you're a TROLL!

When we know the people in question, we understand that there could have been life issues that came up.

The bizarre community is rather compassionate, in my experience. With some notable exceptions.

I was the person who encouraged Pawel to start the Hidden Mother project. It took some effort, really, as he was reluctant. This fact demonstrates there was anything nefarious going on. My last email from Pawel indicated he was in the middle of some very difficult personal and family troubles from which may take considerable time to remedy. There is nothing more.

These projects tend to be growth experiences for those who contribute and often it is very enjoyable to see the final product. Having participated in several of these myself, as well as starting one, I encourage people here to take advantage of such opportunities.

While I am disappointed that the project fell by the wayside it did encourage me to let my creativity run and along the way even opened up ideas and thoughts about future projects. So no, I am not disappointed that I participated for I still came away with more than what I started with.

My mother is still under the sofa. Can someone confirm she is allowed to come out?

After more than a year, I would like to announce I am breathing life back into the Hidden Mothers with Pawel's permission. I heard from Pawel today and he is still struggling with health issues, but is on the mend, slowly. He sends an apology. Please send him your good wishes for a complete recovery. In the meantime, I will be collecting all your email addresses in preparation for sending out the compilation, followed by the prize winner's announcement.

Thanks for all your patience,
Yitzhak

John that's awesome! Congratulations!! Your prize shipped today. You should receive the Spirit Pendulum Friday.

Thanks to all those who contributed. Lets keep the tradition going.

If you perform, thinking of performing or just wish to be creative, there is no better way than writing stories, effects and/or routines. These types of compilations provide an opportunity to challenge yourself and hone your skills in a safe and encouraging environment.

You may only call yourself a writer if you actual write! You all did a great job and should be proud of your work!

Thanks to Pawel for the Hidden mothers contest. We wish you a speedy recovery.

Regards,
The other Rick

Yitzhak was kind enough to send me a copy of the pdf even though my own short story was lost in the chaos of this competition. Thank you Yitzhak much appreciated. Smile
