Hey Stephen,

Glad you reached out to clarify. The “something weird” that happened was me deleting the response, for two reasons:

First, because I thought it was a bit impolite and presumptuous of me to request to republish your work on my publication in a response to it on another publication. It didn’t seem like proper etiquette.

And secondly, although I loved your idea and how you presented it, I think perhaps I was overly enthusiastic to start publishing work from other people here. And I think for now, at least while I’m still cultivating the initial conditions for Memorial Park, I’ll focus solely on publishing my own work. Perhaps once it’s more established I’ll contact DDD about republishing it because it is a good idea and I can tell you’ve put a lot of time and thought into it.

Also, thanks for following along, I appreciate your time and support. The only thing I’ll say is to prepare yourself for strangeness. Memorial Park is quite experimental and may appear rather odd at times.

Anyway, good to connect with you Stephen and after reviewing your profile I can see a number of articles that I’m interested in reading, so I’m sure we’ll chat again soon.


Perhaps the greatest gift that we can give to each other is a greater understanding of ourselves.
