Oh, I just love this! What a vivid character sketch; what a vivid character, period! Your powers of observation and description are masterful. And, your gentle message taps all of us (in our own arrogances) on the shoulder: "man looks on the outward appearance, but God looks on the heart." This has to go into my favorites :)

I agree with Edy - this is very good. And the lesson is one most of us continually need to be reminded of.

I think we all have "Rocky's" in our life - people we find hard to love but, perhaps, are there to test our ability to love. Your description was masterful. I could see, hear, smell and touch Rocky. Well done!
