Reviews for That Old Man
amicusveritas chapter 1 . 9/11/2003
Well told, well done...and poignant and reflective...the point being? There was a time...long ago, I am told, and can even recall...when 'nuclear' families...before old age pensions and social security sent all the old fold off to sunny florida or wherever...here in the states...when elders were revered and respected for their life experience and for their accumulated knowledge and wisdom, it is perhaps a sad commentary on modern times...that progress moves so fast that the old...become outdated and obsolete much too soon...the 17th century will never return...perhaps we should look forward... not really a coherent comment...but...you made me think...and that was at least a part of your intent...well done...thank you, amicus
Wind Blown Hair chapter 1 . 9/11/2003
This is very good. A thoughtful and nostalgic sort of piece. I love the last few lines.
