Your poetic language was lovely. It gave me wonderful pictures to ponder. Thanks.
I enjoyed everything about this story. Great job.
Good writing skill.
This held my attention, gave me a sense of continuing life and family. Good descriptive writing.
Liked the tradition of each generation's planting of an oak and the sharing of their lives together as they acquired their November souls.
My favorite line: "in the lazy of the day or in the prowl of the night." Poetic & picturesque. Lovely piece.
Yes, great descriptions with this piece. I love your development of the verse from Psalm 1. Great writing!
Remember the ice-breaker in social events: "If you were a tree, what kind of tree would you want to be?" Whenever I look at another oak tree, I'll remember your piece. A great Challenge entry!
I'll be looking for this one at the top of the list. You have a masterful way with words. The voice is unique and full of character. The topic is subtle, but undeniably spot on. Well done!
I was going to mention several of my favorite lines, but there are too many. Beautiful!
The message of listening deep, listening long and listening slow is something we all need to do.
Jim, I would come to the FW Challenge just to read your entry if I never had the time to get to others. Watms my soul and stays with me. Just very special.
This is a lovely story, so poetic and evocative. Very well done!
Very beautiful and thought-provoking. You painted a lovely picture; I will look forward to your entries.
Poetic and lovely. Very stong writing. Wonderfully powerful.Loved it!
Powerful writing...awesome entry...well done
Wow! Look at all these golden boxes! This is the kind of entry we've all grown accustomed to reading from you, Jim. Your story so sparkles of a slower, more consummate time in life. It warms us to the core and makes us wish we'd all been your neighbors growing up. Great job.
Excellent writing. Wow!
