It’s wide open and every night I imagine both of you watching the sun blink off as it ends its day. It’s peaceful. I saw an old farmer driving a green pickup truck on cemetery road, wearing overalls like your favorite ones, his elbow hanging out the window. He waved to me. For a moment I thought it was you.

A tree top perspective–really any different angle–provokes us to imagine, to feel more, and write with lively diversity. How important is point of view for authors? According to Burke and Tinsley, authors of The Creative Process, the point of view a writer develops “creates the story; in a sense, is the story.”
