On "Ball Lightning" by Karen Heuler (2045 words) ***

What is the nature of loneliness and how does one know when another feels it? Heuler in this story seems to suggest that only in growing old and experiencing the same sensations do we really know what others feel. Well, at least that's what I took from it. On the surface, this is a story of a man transformed by lightning--you know, those bolts from the sky that can hit you, maim you, and change your life. Read the story here at Oxford Magazine.
