I've read alot of these over the many many years - I don't know maybe 40% of it or so I would estimate....and enjoyed it a great deal.

There is a warm reflective insightful ( like a portal window at sunrise ) quality to it.

Recomended by Me.

BTW you can jump in and read parts of this book and then jump out again....you dont have to start at the start and go go go to the finish...many are small indie micro stories that stand on their own...perfect for todays busy country or city backgrounds....on a bus or a train, stuck in the rain, waiting in vain, it can ease the pain.

If the child be lost, the adult is dwarfed forever.

That one and so many more, Rod. I'm so pleased you posted this. I loaned my copy of your book and cannot remember to whom it went. Fortunately I had read it twice so many of the insights I gained are engrained on my brain, but this opportunity gives me the chance to cherry-pick some more.

One of the finest compliments is that you read LTC twice,

And then passed it on.

Odd, mans desire to leave a trace and shadow of himself behind

As a whisper, reminder and kiss,

In order to perhaps aid & give candle-light to another

sojourner such as he....

After he no longer walks in bodily form.

A desire while alive to be understood to a world

That often seems to generally misunderstand us instead.

Your reviews of Carlas have always made me so very happy

Because I know you to be sincere, and such a reader

And man of words (writer) yourself.

your words of past, as well as your words today, in regards to LTC

Shall I always hold dear

Thank you for the pat on the back, the author (young lad)

in part was looking for.

And moreover, ty for recognising the worth of the words and author

Being one of the same.

God Bless & peace

Rodney

To truly be called writers, it is first that we understand who and what we are, Rod. What intrigued me about "Carla" was the honesty of the work, the rawness of the prose, the sincerity of the writing. George Nakashima, a famous woodworker, left his mark on this world by allowing his pieces to keep their rough edges; the whorls and knots that others tend to avoid or cut away, he proudly displayed for what they were; his furniture true to the spirit that lie within the wood. That’s how I saw “Carla”: the marks left by your rough passage, the scars left by life’s sanctions, the rudeness of revelation had not been polished away; word-crafted to nothingness, edited to blather. We were allowed to embrace for a moment Rodney’s soul, sense for an instant the fire that forged his character, and suffer briefly his disillusion with humanity. To have survived is your tribute, to have written what you felt, your badge of honor. You are a writer.
