Beautiful! A wonderful entry. Enjoyed every line of this one!
Very nice. I especiallly liked this line: "I'm beginning to realize that the woman beside me is like the water table under the earth."

What an absolutely beautiful slice of life, with beautiful characterization and setting. the repetition is VERY effective. I was transported there.

Great story and I love the family roots digging deeper than tree roots. Well done.

I could hear this "Sanp, pitter-patter pit" from the peas. I know the woman in this story… she was my grandmother too. I enjoyed this very much.
