Point of View: Day Thirty-Six

The strongest impact I eek out from a story rewrite is when I change the  point of view.  I have one story told from second person point of view and it was a revelation for me.  The point was how strongly  I  feel the story narrator's presence in my writing, in my reading, and in  my life.  As a little girl, I'd stay awake at night talking to myself, telling myself stories, and acting out conversations I'd wished I'd had.  So, now I am consciously (yes, it is conscious although it's during meditation) trying to find that narrator once again, an old friend and someone I loved very much as a child.  Where did that person go?  Can she return to me?  If she returns, what will she have to tell me?  I invite her back and promise to sit with her for twenty minutes every day.
