I just wrote a review, pushed the wrong button, and -swoosh- everything had disappeared. Let me try again, although rewriting a review is painful.
Great imagination, and I find this a very creative story. The tale of a grain of sand traveling through our world is wonderful. I was suffering with the grain when trapped 'in a sea of pus' (hilarious) and so relieved to witness its survival through the ordeal.
Equally, the idea of ancestry and family is just heartwarming and heartwrenching all the same. You take the reader captive and your description of the grain's travels is very vivid and real.
I love your piece.
More of this, please.
