EP15: Forget Me Not by Mary E. Lowd

Read by Leslie Ann Moore

Music by Robert Farmer

Forget Me Not is Mary E Lowd’s first publication and we are very excited to be presenting it.  It has already appeared in Northwest Passages: A Cascadian Anthology and in a Greek magazine, Ennea, which translates to “9″.

His confidence drew him to her.  The gleam in his eye said, “I can take on the world,” and she believed it.  She was fascinated, and her fascination endeared him to her.

Michael introduced them, but neither Joan nor Leeland bestowed a second glance at Leeland all night.  Their eyes and conversation were reserved for each other.

  1. I need my pain!!! – Capt. James T. Kirk

    What I did like about the story:

    Good reading.

    The idea was interesting, pills to make you forget. I think women could use those, then they’d forget all those bad things their husbands do that they seem to remember FOREVER!

    It showed how the main point of view character reacted well.

    I’ve been on the streets mentioned, but have not yet been into Powell’s Books (Which is a shame, considering how long I’ve lived here).

    What I didn’t like as much:

    I was confused at first with who was who. Maybe I just wasn’t paying attention, though.

    I never saw how Leland was effected by not remembering any failures and pain. I saw where he simply couldn’t remember people, or events, and how those people were effected. I did not see how this effected his business decisions and the like. Your pain and failures help you do better next time (assuming you are paying any attention). While Leland was not the point of view character, I felt he was lacking because the only effect from the pills was not remembering things, but I never saw the results of not remembering.

    I did enjoy the story though.

    I tried to hear the explanation of why the teacher was a retard, but I couldn’t catch it.

    I’m glad you like Kudos!
