Loneliness is truly universal

The story starts out as a melodramatic romance, complete with slapping an hysterical woman to calm her down(!), but by the end it touches a deep nerve and you can forgive most of early trite stuff. Loneliness is universal, as is love.

Night watch

Aw, memory's of peace filled moon lite nights, blue black sky's filled uncountable diamonds on fire with their own wight light, floating on dark glass water, air disturbed only by my a radio just Autable, to human ear, and the shrill distant cry of an octagonal night bird, as I fished on Lake Waconia.
