Saluting with misty eyes
ARH- this is an interesting suggetion, however, I would have to- should it happen- agree that it must be very optional. Although I don't reply nearly as often as I should, I do read much of what is on these pages, and most of my enjoyment comes from reading how someone puts their words together, and deciphering for myself what it is they meant.
Yes, most people do presume that a particular write is 1st person, and it may not be... however that is for everyone to decide for themselves if it is, or isn't.
If I scribble something, and decide that it is omportant for the reader to know it isn't personal, then I just drop a note at the end.
Just my thoughts, though.
Cause in my dreams it's always there
The evil face that twists my mind
And brings me to despair.
