    Default HI - (fiction) - Readers Cast (Neil Travis) - May 09, 2011

    HI - (fiction)

    ?Hi, I?m a caddis larva. Pardon me if I can?t talk right now but I just hatched out of this gelatinous egg mass that my mother placed under this rock just a few days ago. The water is really racing through here and I have to get myself attach to something or I?m going to be washed away.?

    Your little story reminds me of Haig-Brown's, "Silver". You Jurists must be of the same mind and spirit . haha. Well done!

    I'm not certain that I am in the same class with the late Haig-Brown, either as a jurist or a writer, but thanks for the compliment.

    Great tale but I cried at the ending. So sad, those darn fish.

    Good read Neil
