    I love the whole thing, but the last two lines most of all. Interest in another person often happens instinctively, but maintaining and building love really takes effort. It's apparent, you believe that is effort well-spent. Great poem, tim. 🙂

    Oh, cool. I hope you like that one. It was nice to "go back home" through the main character in that story. As well, focus on what I already do well doesn't necessarily mean I will completely neglect trying to do better with description. I am always interested in growing as a writer. And I will circle back around to trying more description (all or most of the senses to describe a scene). I know that's where I'm weakest, and I'll eventually get sick of my lack of competency and try it again. LOL.

    You know, I've tried expanding my description game. The story where I tried hardest on that specific aspect of writing was Bluegrass Symphony. I was inspired to try, based on a story I read by MacGreg, a writer on this site (Dissonance - read it if you've not). Honestly? I don't think the effort spent did much for my work. Yes, I like Bluegrass Symphony, but focusing on increasing descriptive elements took time, and the effort expended didn't feel like it paid off. I tend to write in a clipped way - efficiency of language" was how one kind reader described it. And I'm just going to do what I d

    Long done or not, I still appreciate the comments. So thanks for taking the time. I tried to get across what it'd be like to be and to be with someone like Wolfgang. Someone who could feel what their partner does. Someone who would never have to doubt or wonder. Then you've got Jed and the Beast, acting as an echo-chamber to Wolfgang. They're irresistible in the realm of the physical, but now they're connecting emotionally too - deeply. I'm glad you liked the scene! 🙂

    Initially it was a mistake! I noticed it about a month back ... but ... I decided to leave it. Hint, Hint! 🙂
  6. They are. But as you said, it's a step in the right direction. We've got many more to go, but this is encouraging, all the same. Every time I hear someone has gotten it, it makes me happy.

    Thanks for reading and for the nice comment. I do like how this one turned out. It’s not perfect, but it’s about as well as I can do. 🙂
  9. Good to hear from you, Chris. When is the next step for you? Surgery, right?
  10. That’s so good! I’m really happy for you and your family, molly!
  11. Howdy, all. I hope everyone is as well as they can be. I'm just kicking along, doing the best that I can. Some days, that's enough. Others? Ehhhh ... lol Anyway, I'll be around. 🙂
  12. Hi there. Thanks for taking the time to comment! Fleeting Eternity is something I'm proud of, so I'm glad that you found it moving. I'll see what I can do about keeping on writing. 🙂 Have a great one.
  13. Tonight, I'm in charge of dinner. I'm making homemade chicken strips, and I'm attempting to reproduce one of our favorite french fry recipes from a local brewery.


    Giving these a try, with the addition of Parmesan cheese and fresh ground black pepper. I'm not making nearly as many either; one mid-sized potato each will do it for us.

    Rounding things out with broccoli slaw in a homemade dressing (I've tried it, and at least I know that will be good!).

    I'm looking forward to it!

      Turned out good. I was nearly led astray by the 30 minute cooktime in the recipe, but I checked the fries at 18 minutes, and they were perfect. I would have been mad if I’d have burned them!
