How many times do we get to reflect on our life, snd get the chance to go back to it with the inspiration to make a difference.
Well written, and it has stirred me to try not to do 'just fine'. but to try to do more.

Author's Response: I tell you, this really was a dream I had, though the setting was different. So I wanted to write it down! I don't know if it came off as too preachy, but I hope not. When I opened my eyes the next morning, I was all like "Aw, man! I'm still here, with dishes in the sink and stuff?" I don't know what I had thought would happen, but I've been trying to make it count. Thanks for reading!

Love your poetic way with words. But. woman, you made me look stuff up while I was supposed to working! :D

Author's Response: If I got you to slack during work time, then clearly my work here is done. Mission accomplished! *is gleeful* :D

Is this a near-death experience or mid-life crisis?  Either way, it's lovely and I think Mara made the right choice.

Author's Response: I wrote it to be rather open-ended so that the reader could put their own interpretation of events into the reading of it. I'm glad you liked it, and thank you so much for giving it a chance!

Oooh, this was good.  If only every single person could have such an experience, we would all be better people.

She did fine – they loved her and she loved them – but suddenly fine wasn't enough. She wished she would have done more, been more. She did regret that.

Stolen straight from my diary if I had one.  I totally get this.  I do hope that she embraced the experience and when her time finally comes she can answer no to the question of regret.

As always, nice work.

Author's Response: Thank you! This was actually one that I was raher fond of, but it bombed in the polls (isn't that that way it goes for you?). But what interested me was that I got quite a few comments, and everyone had a different odea about what the story meant. The part you chose to comment on was a part no one else had yet mentioned. Interesting.

I'll tell you something else: this was a real dream that I had. I changed some of the details, like the setting and the person, but I kept the feel and the idea of it. It was as close as I could get to putting it down exactly as I experienced it.

Anyway, I know this is a little off the beaten path for reading material, so I thank you for chancing it. You are always willing to read whatever junk I might write, and I am so grateful for that!
