Joy comes in the morning. - Psalm 30
Beware of farmers with Earth, Wind, and Fire stones. - Me
Well done, Justin.
“Honey, things are going to be okay. Maybe not today, or tomorrow, but someday we’ll all get there.” ♥️
Came across an Anne Lamott quote yesterday:
“Hope begins in the dark, the stubborn hope that if you just show up and try to do the right thing, the dawn will come.”
Great story! I love the message.
A wonderful conclusion, Justin! I like how everything became grounded in the real world in this half. Except that mysterious farmer!! The real and the fantastic were really well balance.
I feel you on the backlog! It all stacks up so quickly!
Would love more of this story!
Loved this image: "the skies had cleared, almost as if someone had scrubbed at the black and gray clouds with a rag, revealing the blue backdrop behind them."
I feel your backlog. I'm in the same boat. But we're still here!
This is a powerful story, rich with fabulism. I enjoyed every vivid scene and the realistic dialogue.
Nicely done Justin. I could really feel Abby’s panic when things got out of control.
You had me riding in that truck and slogging through the rain and mud right along with them, Justin. When the father said, "“You’re going to walk up to that house, knock on his door, and apologize.” I yelled NOOOOOO! So many thoughtful details. Excellent!
This story came together beautifully with its ending. As much as we want to control things and push that button that will make everything we wish for come true, it just doesn't happen that way. How tempted we all are to steal a little machine that can do just that. I really liked this one, and loved the innocence of Abby.
That was excellent. I really enjoyed it.
Jason, that was a read! As I meandered into your story, it surely pulled me in; where this is going, I couldn't stop! Alot of great writers here, keeping us reading!
Excellent story, I enjoyed the relationship between the father and his daughter.
I loved this story and am so happy that I got to read the conclusion today!
