The inimitable ShadowedAcolyte, who not-so-long-ago became one of those people who decide on literary Daily Deviations has, to my great pleasure, chosen to feature my piece The Gas Mask today for a Daily Deviation! He called it "a visceral, painful piece of short prose", although one might note it was put into the non-fiction category. Endless thanks to Ross for trawling through my old archives. I wrote it in 2009 - that's 5 years ago! - and re-reading it now reminded me how traumatized I was (and, I suppose, still am) of my short stint in the army :lol:

Although it feels a little embarrassing today (some people have had actual traumatic experiences, and I'm complaining about some silly training exercise!), I'm still happy I wrote it when I did. The mind is good at forgetting things that were upsettting, and that's wonderful, but there's value to remembrance as well. Especially when sublimated into, well, "art" (I have a very liberal definition of art, but feel free to disagree about whether or not this constitutes 'art' or not): anyway I'm really glad ShadowedAcolyte chose this particular piece to feature, old as it is!

4th DD! That's almost one per year!
