  1. Whispers that weigh on many of us, topics not spoken enough of. I agree with Michael, your symbolism and elusive writing style allows readers to fall into the story, to make our own assumptions and craft our own imagery along with your words. You give us just enough to entice our minds to fill in the rest and feel fully connected with your protagonist. Beautiful piece, powerful writing.
