What Is This All About ?

The writers gathered here have adopted one of the 48 lions that appeared in "The Lions Of Lyon" series on the writing blog Shameless Words. By adopting a lion, the writers have become a member of this new writing circle. The lions have been posted in the sidebars of the writers' individual blogs, accompanied by a poem or piece of prose. Of course, it is hoped that the strength, luck and prestige of these mighty beasts will rub off on their owners! (Keep scrolling down to see the full listings of all members and their lions).

Lion 41 - Carter's Little Pill

 

Lion 41:

Aloysius The Hidden.

Artist behind the lion:

Clarence Stiernet (Belgian painter and sculptor).

Adoptive Writer:

Julie at Carter's Little Pill.

Blog Description:

This is the blog of Julie Carter, who lives in Ohio in the US. There is a focus here on poems and prose, as well as super short posts that get straight to the point. Julie has published a poetry collection called pseudophakia, a copy of which can be bought on her blog. There is a buzz about this site, with good, witty writing, and the posts cover a wide variety of subjects. There is also a great deal of humour, adding to the light and shade.

Poem or piece of prose inspired by the lion:

Mediocrity is never hidden, but the best things,
the worst, might lurk on the edges and wait.

About the lion's name:

Julie says:

"I don't have a grand story. I just looked at him, and he might have been looking at me or might have been looking at anything, really, behind that mask. 'Aloysius' means "famous warrior." I think that's fitting. He's lucky I didn't name him Zorro."

Thanks, verilion.

As for Aloysius's name, I don't have a grand story. I just looked at him, and he might have been looking at me or might have been looking at anything, really, behind that mask.

"Aloysius" means "famous warrior." I think that's fitting.

He's lucky I didn't name him Zorro.
