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?
