    Looks like there will be a whole lot of judging going on, Daeds. Good comp.

    Hi Daeds, I'm so busy right now with so many things but your comp theme hit something that I'd been wanting to write about for a long time. Thanks for supplying the catalyst for me to get just the basic skeleton on paper Cheers F.

    Very well done on your excellent August competition win, and thanks for a thought-provoking September challenge. Now obsessing over doorways.

    Thanks Daedalus. I love Norse mythology and the Viking period. One day maybe I'll come up with a storyline and will be able to slit this piece in.

    Great comp entry, Daedalus. I love the way that line repeats - so powerful.

    Thanks for your kind comments, Daedalus. I’ve been slow this month in reading and commenting on other people’s work because of the festival deadline, but I’ve had time now and was intrigued, saddened by yours. I love the way you tell us so much about this man – the problems that brought him to the beach at this point in time, the way you blend his jealousy and cynicism and self-pity, and then uplift it all when he steps into the wonderful, healing sea.

    Thank you, Daeds. Almost didn't enter but saw this snippet in a book I was glossing through.
