“Teenage Sunday”

“Cars of all sorts, Lux’s Z28, Lammet’s van, Desiree’s Comet, a tiny Porsche 914, a Chevelle SS, an Oldsmobile Cutlass, a Ford Falcon, and a Plymouth Valiant, had been parked next to each other under the branches of the maples and elms. A gossip of girls sat on the wooden railing edging the play area, swinging their tanned legs, playfully pushing their neighbor’s shoulder with flicked fingers (as if to say “Get outa here”), and maintaining a constant low buzz of talk that would suddenly flare up in exuberant laughter. Boys leaned against the sides of their cars, some smoking cigarettes and doing their best impressions of cool, tough guys they had seen in the movies, others bragging about and explaining in too-graphic detail the passion of their last date.”

Richard Maddox

Richard Dietrich Maddox's writing focuses on the search for permanent happiness, the goal of finding paradise on earth, the attainment of human Enlightenment. His work, though fiction, attempts to convey the profound spiritual Truth passed on to humanity by Enlightened Masters. Maddox approaches spiritual wisdom from a Western level of experience, presenting characters to whom readers can easily relate, offering situations in which readers might well have found themselves. His work offers, in a style which those living in the West will find understandable, the possibility of blissful existence.
