    Nice use of the prompt, taking us through the ages and stages in a graceful way.

    Lovely piece about progress to a comfortable maturity. A very clever use of the prompts, and the analogy with the sea is great.

    I love it. A story in a sentence – how appropriate for a tale about the all-too-quick passing of a human life. Warm and moving! Well done. 🙂

I'd love to read what you think ...
