Author of this blog dedicates this story to, well, you know who you are if you are out there somewhere in the matrix. Cheers to all those evenings listening to U2’s song, “With or Without You.” Thank you for turning me on to this short story and teaching the teacher something. You were an original.
If you consider yourself an adventurer or a Romantic in the classic sense of the word that includes those with a love and passion for nature and the aesthetic beauty of the natural world and beyond, one who prefers the roller-coaster to the tea-cups, then you will love this one if you haven’t already enjoyed it’s magically realistic and enticing theme to take advantage of the now and “drink life to the lees” (“Ulysses,” Alfred Lord Tennyson). Enjoli!
