What a touching piece that, I believe, was written from personal experience! The author was able to capture the complex array of emotions and thoughts around the holiday season spent away from a loved one, in a manner universal enough to be familiar to many, yet specific enough to have clarity.
As much as this story is about Seth, as a reader I'd love some more characterisation of the persona. That way, the piece would include two very three-dimensional, realistic characters that have a compelling dynamic for the reader.
A wonderfully personal and well-written story with a steady, controlled tone. Some excellent ornamental pieces of writing throughout that support a moving story.
