Section 5.

So far these stories entertainingly provide food for thought.
That is very true! Section 5 is PL OK!

Section 6. I think this little story is a minor masterpiece. A gem of sensitive writing.

The scenery description alone is incredibly rich!

Agreed, the scenery was beautifully described.

I was thinking particularly of how Hirries was depicted taking a celebratory walk among his just-sold trees, and how it gradually turned into mild concern, then growing desparation, and finally you-know-what. I can't remember reading anything better than that. I felt I was right there with him.

Eager to read more!!!

Yes, exactly! That realization just was this subtle, but relentless, spiral! It was just so... No words!

Section 7. Quality writing still there.

I'm taking it a little slower in the drowsy summer heat (even with AC). Must be a little warmish where you are, too.

Yep, I agree, the quality continues! :9:

Section 7 is PL OK! Take as much time as you need, it is summertime and summertime is meant to enjoyed outside. Unless it is over 110 degrees outside! I missed our super hot weather here at the beach by experiencing it in Utah, where it got to 116 one day! I like hot weather, but not that hot. Now, at home, the weather has been beautiful!

Here's Section 8. Our author could really see the darker side of life. "Gawd!"

I would too! It probably means something like PDA is to our time.
