How high the moon?
That was the ultimate question, and I was pleased with the forty-two words I came up with to answer it. I’d wrangled their arrangement in my head during several morning walks with the dog until I ended up with a microstory. I was proud to earn an editor’s pick for “distant” at the yeah write challenge.
Just so I didn’t get too big a head over it, however, the universe sent Nate my way. Nate is one of the editors at yeah write. I felt fortunate that he had time to stop by, read and comment on the story. Nate’s comments are like gold. He has a knack for capturing the best of others’ writing and gently making suggestions for improvement as needed. His response to my tiny tale was poetic:
Your china images are all balancing perfectly, delicate and stretching upward. Then you take a hammer to them.
And that’s how I got upstaged on my own blog. Therefore, it’s only fitting that I select Nate’s words as my June Comment of the Month and add them to my Couldn’t have said it better page.
