Alone on a bridge staring into the dark water…
He was not born Noah Waters, but constant rejection often has a way of encouraging one to walk away from everything they have known while giving birth to the person they are meant to be. This is Noah’s story…
I was a sixteen-year-old runaway when I worked my way to the edge of the Jackson River Bridge and peered at the moonlit water swirling below. To be fair, I wasn’t an ordinary sixteen-year-old. I had an affliction akin to autism that left me with fragmented memories of my childhood, memories that inspired nightmares filled with demons that tormented me while I slept and awoke me screaming in the dark void of my room.
Even I understood that I had few choices, and all were bad. There was nothing for me on the side of the river I had come from, and I had no reason to believe that the other side of the river offered anything better. Logically, jumping seemed a way to break the tie.
The stalemate only broke when I heard a voice emanating from the darkness. The voice belonged to a man wearing a hooded garment that shadowed his face, a man who chose to live on the grounds of an old monastery with a dozen cats.
The moment he stepped from the darkness my life began to pivot. I first learned to trust him, then love him. He put me on a path toward a future I never imagined possible that night as I stood on…The Jackson River Bridge.
Elliott Light grew up in a tidy neighborhood outside of Washington, D.C. that some kids thought was Eden. But after watching a video of a friend’s fifth birthday party, he saw the garden differently and imagined it through the eyes of a child who didn’t fit in. The Jackson River Bridge, his fifth published novel, is styled as a memoir. The story is pure fiction, but the joys and sorrows are genuine.
His previous works include such wonderful books as: Throwaways, published independently and The Gene Police, Chain Thinking, and Lonesome Song all published through Bancroft Publishing.
