A nice idyllic path to all the paths taken in life.

"Paths," by Roy Pace is beautifully written and full of meaning. Every word has been weighed by Pace before placing them for best effect. But what I loved most was living inside this story--living inside as a kid, before fear of the world took hold. What a magical childhood! Janice Daugharty

Review by: Jason McIntyre on Aug. 12, 2010 :
Interesting read about a time slightly before my own and a place I've never been to, but can imagine perfectly from Roy's descriptions.

The last couple of pages were the hard-hitting part. If Roy wanted to make this a little more to the gut, he could cut or condense the first four pages and make them more of a set-up to the ultimate lesson he learned at the end.

But I suspect that is not his purpose with this "essay" so He should leave it be. It's a good solid recollection of an important time in his life. Well done!
