26 Dec


It was finally over. Everyone knew the truth. He walked the deserted streets aimlessly drifting through the late night quiet. Nothing mattered now. He could be whomever he wanted to be; disappear into where ever the day took him. He shouted in celebration to no one, his breath freezing in midair. The possibilities were endless.

    >It could be many stories ("endless possibilities" of stories) but it seems to me to be most of all a story of telling the truth to one's self. Well done.

    >In fiction I was find the first sentence to be the most important one, the one that catches you and pulls you in, and if this were a book I'd already be at the 10th page. Yes I was captivated!

    >There is a freeing sense, a celebratory feel to your 55, that balances out the cold drifting aspect. Love how it invites interpretation; also imagine the breath he took seems like one long overdue one of proverbial "fresh air." Great microfiction! Cheers

    >Truth is the master; it changes the world. Very few times do we have the understanding to comprehend it, the courage to accept it, or the ability to spread it; and when it happens, what a freedom it brings. Perfect paragraph,calling, hinting, whispering and singing it's message of achievement.

    >Your "give a damn" video, combined with this, makes me wonder if "the truth" mentioned might be one quite familiar in my own life. Whether or not, it's still an intriguing piece.
