    Zofia,
    This is nicely done, and a powerful eulogy in a half-dozen words to a man who was certainly one of our stars.

    I look forward to more of your work.
    Jim

    I agree with the above comments. The juxtaposition here is superb Zofia! It not only illustrates the transience of human life, but also the powerful impact Salinger had in literature. Beautiful!
