Wonderful title, and I really liked the voice in this charming piece.
The title of this piece definitely said, “Read me!”
You capture a lot in this very atmospheric writing. I'm glad that even though you missed the sunsets, you were not too much of a hasty 14 year old to miss an old man's wisdom. A good reminder to us all to slow down, and well told.
Love the title. . . it did grab my attention. The article was so much fun. The fact that there was a clear message to slow down and appreciate what is in front of you was an added bonus. Really enjoyed reading this. :)
Joe, I'm going to feature this story on the Front Page Showcase for the week of October 12. Look for it on the FaithWriters home page...and congratulations!
I truly enjoyed going on this camping trip with your MC. I grew up in Illinois farm country, and watching the sun melt into the flat horizon was a gorgeous sight. Glad your MC understood what the wise man was explaining to him about God's beauty.
Thanks for turning back the clock with this delightful story, giving your reader time to pause and reflect on similar memories.
