    I love this story! I’ve been wrestling with the mechanics of my own writing and this reminded me of the fun I’ve had reading and remembering to concentrate on making that the focus instead of my own angst. Very handy, you mind reader you!

    ::sniff, sniff:: This one, as they say, hit me right in “the feels.”

    What a beautiful, bittersweet story. Thanks, Kris.

    By the way, it is “matte” painting…

    • Thanks! And it was copy edited, too. 🙂 Just shows you can’t remove all of the errors. I’ll go fix now.

        As long as you’re in a good mood about copy errors, let me ask: did you deliberately misspell “Rockefeller Center” and “Neilsens” for trademark reasons? That’s not snark, I’m asking in order to add a bit of professional knowledge to my little pile. It didn’t ruin the story for me, not at all, this is a ghost story that’s in touch both with reality and with some magical or deeper reality. I love it! I also envy your ability to sketch the setting economically without derailing the story. (Also character. And conflict.) Getting a little effusive here, sorry.
