11. "He had a gangly grace about him that made me frown and grin at the same time."

 

It is amazing to me that writers develop such recognizable styles. I'd have known that this was the creator of Oscar, right off the bat.

29. I like you think it's beautiful.

I think a kind of beauty is what I was aiming at.
The first two friends who read it, one said it was
the most Christian story he's read (as in Christian
"action," he said) and the other saw it as completely evil
and frightening. I'll take "beautiful" any day.

31. the comment about it being "christian" reminded me

of a client who was homeless who asked if I was a Christian. I said I was. The client replied, "Not really. If you were Christian you would take me to your home. Since then, I've never forgotten how hard it is to be truly Christina.

32. Great! I felt the zen-ness of going with a self with no name (not that zen itself was your aim),

through your dialog, and the very same consciousness that the woman's p.o.v. showed...an unspoken knowledge that women and children have of their status (great dialog, that part!) or a kind of self apart from (sometimes outside) the world of men that claims "men have names," the phrase which I was sure the story problem turns on in the Western ego sense of things.

Anyway, not to be all psychodrama about it...your flow was so watery smooth, the dialog was subtle fun, and moving everyone's -- the reader's and all the characters' -- growing awareness such that when the switch happened, I was delighted. The final line was what it was all about. I'm sure that the magazine's audience is one that will very much appreciate your story.

Your story made me wish for such people in the world.

which I still like but it's too cold for this story.

who among us really knows who we are? We should all have a matchbook with a number as a clue. Great story. Like uncle's pet. A mystery of life.
