From the Author:
I've sometimes had occasion to meet an elderly person who is quite angry and bitter about life. I tend to feel sorry for such a person and I confess I wonder what has happened in his earlier years to make him this unhappy and cantankerous in old age. These were the thoughts and the questions in my mind when I wrote the short story, Joshua's Journey.
