This work is intended to stand unto itself as more a living, breathing portrait of art painted with carefully chosen words, than just as a really interesting story told. The intent here is for the listener to view the landscape through the eyes of the main character, to feel what he does as he ambles along in this adventure. When the main character feels the pain and pleasures of the old dirt road, then all will only be right if the listener feels these same identical experiences. As the phantom of the old dirt lashes out in retribution for the sins in the main character's past, then the hope here likewise is that the listener will feel the need for adjustment in the course of his own life, as he, too, travels the old dirt road through the world of the secular experience. Upon reaching this point, the listener should experience the thrills of an exciting climax as the main character reaches his destination, and ends the experience with a new positive insight into the plan for improvement in both his secular and spiritual life.
Any additional comments?
The Old Dirt Road and the Hellion is a retrospective look back at the adventures (and misadventures) of a rural good ol' boy. The protagonist travels the road of life thinking about his misspent youth and wonders what is to come of his life. I think this tale will feel familiar to many people and definitely inspired nostalgia in me. This beautiful story is well written, well read, and well received!
