A Writer's Voice: Thank you Regina
I was very moved by your remembrance, "Reflections of Mr. T. Willie Halton." You are very gifted. You have an extraordinary "Writer's Voice". Everyone who reads your words will feel as if they were looking over your shoulder. Your words compell us to see Mr. Halton through your eyes.
Your shift from childhood memories to adult musings is effortless.
I enjoyed your style. It's almost dream-like. It reminds me of my favorite French novel "Le Grand Meaulnes" (The Wanderer) by Alain Fournier. The story if quite different from yours. But your style like Fournier's, captures an important passage in your childhood that was seems mystical. Mile Lane Road is magical. Your words resonnate with love and admiration for Mr. Halton.
I thought that you might like to read a bit about Fournier and Le Grand Meaulnes so I've included a link below.
Thanks so much for sharing your gift and Mr. Halton with Afrigeneas. I also smiled when I saw your copyright. Indeed you should protect this remembrance and keep it as your own.
I have some suggestions for publishing this story. Please send me a note at Afrigeneas.
