T50YS H50JZ w/e

the fifty year sword is a story stitched together from five points of view. it seems to have around 12 or 13 characters:

Adults:
Chintana
The Social Worker
Bob Sandlin Park Ranger
I-Wanna-Cut-Up-A-Rug-With-You Gas Station Owner
Car Dealer
Taxidermist
Belinda Kite
(Mose Dettledown)
Pravat/The Story Teller
The School Teacher

Children:
Tarff
Ezade
Iniedia
Sithiss
Micit

Candles:
ginger
cinnamon
nutmeg
cloves
molasses

Orange harvester
Green-backed herons
a tight muddy man who could tenderly lift fields of Wild Lupine, Blackberry Lilly and lush Evening Primrose from the grieving earth.

And a man with no arms who sold swords that could cut them all away.
He sold a sword that could cut out an idea.

The 50 Year Sword cuts deeply but you won’t feel the effects until your fiftieth birthday. The five children whose points of view are used for the story, obviously later in life, seem to have a very good memory of the events. That makes the story somewhat unrealistic. However, if it is such a tramatic experience as to know that you’re going to be cut to pieces later in life and it will almost definitely happen as you’ve witnessed it firsthand, maybe you would remember such specific details… or maybe you’re a crazy person.
