surprise, appreciation, questions, concern -- so many feelings wrapped up in a short short story. Nicely balanced with further questions for the reader to explore within her or himself. And then there is the music that inspired your literary portrayal --- I often find my creativity is also inspired by music. I look forward to reading more of your literary efforts, Lyndsey. And thanks to Author's Den as well for providing the opportunity for these exchanges.

"There Will be an Answer" is a wonderful, meaningful story.
To forgive is the first step in being able to move on in life from what seem to be overpowering tragedies. To be thankful is the first step in being able to accept and lead a fuller, richer life. "Mother Mary" and "Let it be" capture both of these life-changing qualities.
Living in raw emotional pain and abject physical poverty are but two aspects of life that can make one year seem like twenty. But when you can live with the ingrained countenance of "Mother Mary" and "Let it be," life becomes too short to accomplish all that needs to be done.
The short story "There Will be an Answer" suggests there will be an answer. At 74, I've developed this answer: "When we live with God in our heart, our future is to live in the heart of God."
Well done, Lyndsey Nelson. Well done!

Sweet, and at times, all too true...

So sad and yet that is the way of things in this life more often than not. Thank you, Lyndsey. Love, peace, and best wishes to you,

What a fantastic story! It kept me engaged all the way to the end, and then I almost cried because it is so very true. Very Awesome! :O)

I liked this story, Lyndsey. It made me feel good to think, if only for a moment, that this person could actually exist. I was moved by his advice to the woman whose cat got hit: Forgive. Let it be. Words to live by, and I would like to add that your final thought really packs a punch -- too young to understand the fact that life was too short and too long at the same time. Very compelling.
Visit my den sometime.

An engaging story, Lyndsey. I like the allusion to the song of the Beatles as well. Thank you for sharing. Love and peace to you,

Quite interesting Lindsey, it is nice to put "A bit of my mind on paper". Penning is a wonderful way to just let your inner feelings flow then you can see them and take them to creat a magnificent new and polished creation!
Blessings and welcome to the den~Enjoy!
From the Heart...

Hold on Lyndsey. The waters are bound to recede and the sun will come out again. Perhaps it is your words that are your lifeline. Keep writing.
My thoughts are with you.

You will never see how much you are blessed if you go through life with your chin in your chest;

Or as Lennon sang 'Life is what happens to you while we're busy making other plans.'
Intriguing how you attribute wickedness as autonomous to life itself.
Some Times (Poetry) - 7/22/2007 12:29:31 PM
Life is a journey of experiences. Knowing wickedness is a learning experience. Stay in the light, Lyndsey.

This is your life, Lyndsey. Deep water flooding in brings with it the opportunity to learn how to swim. Take charge, Lyndsey. Many of us understand and are praying for you.
Broken Mirror of Life (Poetry) - 7/22/2007 12:20:04 PM
The words in this poetry cry out in the pain of isolation and abandonment, two events of life that engender hopelessness and despair.
Know this, Lyndsey Nelson, there are people right here in Authorsden who understand your pain and are here to help. And right now I want you (and anyone else who shares these troubled feelings) to go to Jean Pike's den and read her lovely poem When it Rains.
And there are many other postings here that are so great for when life seems overwhelming. Lyndsey, focus not on where you have been or where you feel you are now. I leave you these words from my bio page, and they work wonders: "What I focus upon becomes reality. I have the power to choose."
I send you my heart and my prayers,

A short poem but what an ending. Great. Victor

This poem is "too" bright & "too" new... both in a good way! Welcome to AD... Where are you? I am a native of Louisiana... with the Jambalaya & Gumbo cookbook bet you would never have guessed... right? :-)~ LOL! Keep on writing Lyndsey!

This gets one to think. Good write!
Water? (Poetry) - 7/19/2007 2:47:26 PM
Water comes in so many different forms. It can be benevolent and it can be violent as well. Again, I find that "water" here in your verses is symbolic. Thank you, Lyndsey. Love and peace,
Broken Mirror of Life (Poetry) - 7/19/2007 2:46:00 PM
Sad sentiments, Lyndsey. I sense symbolism in your verses as well. Love and best wishes,
Some Times (Poetry) - 7/19/2007 2:44:48 PM
Substance for thought and pause, Lyndsey. Thank you. Welcome to AD. Love and peace to you,
