Best Thing You've Ever Written?
 
What's the best thing you've ever written, in your opinion?

Re: Best Thing You've Ever Written?
 
When I was an undergrad, I used to see an old man walking along the side of the road in a heavy overcoat in the hot days of summer. He would shuffle along, creating a small dust cloud, staring at his feet. He never responded when you talked to him, just kept shuffling along. I wondered what his story was and so I wrote a short story about a WWII vet who had recently lost his wife and was in the early stages of Alzheimer's and had a very good reason for needing to get dusty by shuffling along on the side of the road. It has been my favorite piece since I wrote it (oh my, it was nearly fifteen years ago. Where did the time go?).
