Writing Prompt # 043

A detail of the 1672 sculpture Entombment of Christ,

The second person:  Writing at length in the second person is very difficult.  Perhaps that is why there are so few good novels in the second person.  My favorite work in second person has to be Aura, by Carlos Fuentes.  The entire text in spanish can be found here.  (Sorry, I couldn’t find it in English).  For this prompt, write about a moment in your life in second person.  How does this affect the distance between you and the events?  Was it more difficult, or easier to tell?
