So sad, but unfortunately true. Very interesting perspective. It takes a creative person to look at life from a blue crab's eye view. Well done.

Very sad, but well and realistically written. Thanks.
A very sad truth eloquently shown in this dark piece. The blue crab image is perfect. The shoreline effectively symbolic. Personally this resonates because I have someone in my life who this captures to the smallest detail. Skillfully written!

Not bad for a half hour's work! ;-)
Yes, it's short, but the message is clear. You've chosen your words & phrases well to convey the depth of all that this woman has missed in her life. Good job!

A half hour? My your brave! And good too! This IS really a good and effective read. It's sad she doesn't even know how empty and useless she has been.

I certainly didn't expect the end, and it made my writer's spirit leap up and applaud. What a perfect word picture!

Ohhhh...such a wonderful, and brilliant piece of work! I loved every word from the beginning to the fantastic ending. (I didn't realize you knew me...as your story seemed to point in my direction)-(sorry to say); but Wow, such a creative mind, from a talented Writer.
Good insight and creative writing. Beautiful!
