|I was attracted to this piece by the title, which I felt as I was reading that it is very appropriate. You start off by introducing the man at the lighthouse with sharing with the reader the type of life he experienced during his time there. This was well done because I could feel like I could envision the environment this man was living in and how his life was lonely all alone with very little if any human contact. Although this man's job is important, many may not have thought about how difficult this job can be for someone to be alone quite a bit. One suggestion for improvement here, there could be more expressive of emotion, especially around the part where he makes his leap. For example, what is driving him to do this, sadness, anger, a combination of both, or even something else all together. When someone is going to committ suicide there is always huge emotions attached that drive a person to this point. You have done an excellent job with your descriptions throughout this piece, I like how you put in the animal companions he has with him. Overall, this is a well written piece with possibly one area of improvement with the emotions which I feel would make it even better; I always find the more emotional a piece of writing is, the more others seem drawn to it. Thank you for sharing your work.
