Liked this story! It is amazing how much we let material things control our lives! It is amazing how much “living” is passed by while working for things. Everyone cannot just become homeless, but we can notch out more time for what is important if we really try. Well written, great message.
I like how you have externalised the kind of internal dialogue - that hits us all at different times - with some credible characters.
I note Linda's point that we can't all become clones of Ed, but I also like your open-ended close...
This is brilliant. I loved the characters, the dialog, and the conflict. Most of all I loved the message. Congratulations on your EC! Happy Dance!
Congratulations, Cindy, on winning 5th place in the EC awards this week.

I think it is so important to listen to what Ed said and re-evaluate priorities,
Hey Cindy, congrats on your HC/EC. Well done.
Congratulations, Cindy, on your EC place. I really enjoyed the story about Ed, his interactions with the MC and his impact on him. You touch on something that we all need to think about from time to time.
Your tale encouraged me in a gentle way to think about my most precious commodity and how the time I sow into others lives is the greatest gift I can give yet receive.
