I would like to apologize to the readers of my last article. It was suggested I put and extra space between paragraphs to make things easier to read, and I am working on that; it simply does not come naturally, so I hope you can slug your way through another close packed piece.

Thanks, and God bless,

Kevin

Your conclusions made the journey through the article very well worth it - but I almost didn't read it because it didn't have those spaces. Great writing, though.
Glory to God, praise Jesus! A well-told, hair-raising experience for sure. Do work on the paragraph spacing, as you mentioned. That would make your readers much happier. :-)

I liked that last line.
Tripping is not much fun either-but always thankful for God's help.
God bless ya, littlelight

Wow .. .what a story! One thing I like to do when swearing is needed to convey emotion is something like this:

As the car approached one of the many sharp turns I was able to tell, immediately that it wasn't going to make the turn. I swore. “We're not gonna make it!”

That way you don't have to put something in front of the reader that they might not want to see.
One more note from the author. After re-examining the precipice over which my car had been hanging, I discovered that - in my high-adrenaline state - I had over-estimated the drop to the bottom. It was actually closer to 150 feet than four hundred. In an aside, three days later I sold that car and purchased a jeep.


God bless, and keep reading,

Kevin

Thanks Kevin for your slice of life story. Have you thought about fictionalising it?
