Rain on Rooftops Review
There are presently no open calls for submissions.
“Water does not resist. Water flows. When you plunge your hand into it, all you feel is a caress. Water is not a solid wall, it will not stop you. But water always goes where it wants to go, and nothing in the end can stand against it. Water is patient. Dripping water wears away a stone. Remember that, my child. Remember you are half water. If you can’t go through an obstacle, go around it. Water does.”
Our theme this year is “Emotional Texture.” The idea of being who you are, feeling what you feel, and knowing what you’re made of. The theme explores the attributes of self-acceptance, self-awareness, and resiliency. Oscar Wilde says, “Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.” The editors here are RORR want to know what the theme emotional texture means to you. What are you made of?
