Questions from a Television Screen

by caccy46

How do you know you exist? the voice asked her. "I don't know, really, except you are talking to me..." she began to hear the the voice echo the question again. "Maybe I'm not here at all..." (it was the first time she thought it a possibility). Do people visit you? the voice whispered. "They don't anymore... at least I don't think they do... I'm not sure because I'm stuck inside." I suggest you close your eyes and float away the voice suggested before the screen turned to static.

Great six on existentialism and the inner questions we all face. Written by one of the best sixers there is.

Thanks for the comments. Honestly I have no recollection of writing this, which is more than a little scary- especially considering the topic. Had I remembered it, I would have chosen not to submit it - but I must have been in some spacey place.

Glad you ultimately chose to submit this. Very well-written - adifferent style than what we've seen previously from you but just as strong as your other sixes! Great job!

Yeah, love this - very different, very evocative, very thought-provoking. Thanks for giving so much.

Things like this used to happen to me after smoking too much dope. That's part of why I quit. I like the way you wrote it in the two voices. It's very effective.

Same here, Madam Z, Didn't stop the voice though. Nice one caccy, several takes on this present them selves and it invites re-reading. I liked the idea that the narator might be a ghost...
