Awesome! I love this and the deep meaning that is filled with. Rescue those who are defenseless, no greater friend have we than one who will lay down his life.
This is really, really deep. I read it twice, getting two different reactions afterwards. "Awsome" and "So Sad" Very creative writing, this is one of my favorites this week. ^_^
I think what I like most about this is its pacing; it starts slowly and accelarates through decreased paragraph- and sentence length. Super job of structuring this deep piece with a unique voice.
This is masterful - the mood, the characterization, the repetition. I'm practically speechless. Wow.
All I can say is...WOW!! Awesome work!
Every sentence of this entry commands attention. The sum total of it weaves a network alive with a reality of its own, whether alternate or not.
I enjoyed this masterful "think tank".
Wow! What to say? The repetition is perfect. The alternate reality time is exquisite. The language paints a picture. The pace rolls with exact timing. The emotion is overwhelmingly sad in both realities. This story will haunt me. As an aspiring writer, I am awed.
The repetition of the title throughout gave this an added chill. I absolutely love your style, and am left wondering when I should have yawped. So good.
This is so deep and raw, that I had to read it 3 times just to get it fully. I still don't think I've totally grasped it. All I know for sure is that it takes an incredible amount of skill, connected with inspiration from the Lord to write something this moving. Bravo!
Oh how I love yur alternate reality. :) Such an amazing story and message. I'm going to go read it again. Wonderful article.
There is such depth and introspection in this piece and a sense of longing and finding a "someone" who finally understand and makes the difference in a life well-lived.
"Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls;
all your waves and breakers
have swept over me." Psalm 42:7 (NIV)
I'm so glad that I "sstumbled" across this entry this evening. It is very well-written and meaningful. The regret was palpable. Reading this piece requires some thinking, but is well worth the time it takes.
Go glad I decided to read all of Joanne's gems this week. Keep writing, you have much to say. Looking forward to more!
TJ, I'm featuring this piece on the Front Page showcase for the week of July 25. Look for it on the FaithWriters home page--and congratulations!
