    Wow! This is a powerful story, Diane. Thank you so much for sharing the link. It brought back memories of so many past experiences in places like “Cranwood Springs,” and past experiences with so many “Nicks,” “Lindas,” and “Joes.”

    And I say Wow! to you because with so much that really matters that you always need to get done, I’m moved and appreciative that you took the time to read it.

    I am grateful I did take take time. Reading your short story was worth the time. I just wish I had enough to tackle your novel, “Out of Place.” I was tempted, but awoke on Christmas morning with a vision of my research syllabus in mind and knew it would would take a lot of work to update before the semester begins in less than 3 weeks.

    (And think you for taking time from your always busy schedule to find and send an updated link for one of the key videos!)

    I enjoy internet sleuthing – especially when the result comes up pretty quickly!

    I enjoyed this story, Diane. In a moment of “a story is unique in the eyes of each reader” I really enjoyed the brief description of the music in tree rings, because it reminded me of a passage in Tom McCarthy’s novel The Making of Incarnation when he writes about the acoustic recordings contained in ancient pottery. Which I loved, both his description and your own.

    Your story here snuck up on me: a bit of a blitz at first and how to make sense of it, and then it sort of emerged in layers. Like oh, Ooohh…, yes, I see. Much like the narrator’s voice, which ended up being a lovely microcosm or echo of this very effect. By the end I was feeling it, the whole of it, including these unsaid spaces that hid behind the narrator’s fleeting conscious excursions…

    Lovely and heartfelt!

      I took a quick look at your site and it is so rich in thought and exploration of heart and ideas, it deserves careful reading. I have a heavy workload today but hope to spend time with your essays and fiction tomorrow. Thank you for your response to my story.
