Jack – the dark river of night and a boy’s world

A boy’s life

Much of the life on Jack is a boy’s life. Life as a boy’s world should be. Fishing. Playing ball. Skinny dipping. Smoking by a fire. The whole Tom Sawyer existence. Before the terrors of manhood. This is the way a boy’s life should be. And is on Jack. Until the sun sets. Then reality sets in. The  lives of most boys . The joys of Tom Sawyer turn into Huck Finn’s terrors. Life is dangerous. Without romance. Ugly. And angry. Filled with terror. Not from the fabrications of the imagination. But real terrors.  The dead bodies. In the abandoned houses. Drifting down through the dark river of night. But there is also incredible courage. And a depth of love that saves us all.

That is the end of my tale. I am off to Spain. For a month. With my girl. The lovely Mieke. If you are interested, here are two other blogs.
