While you've got some good moments in there (e.g., end of p. 4 into p. 5), my advice would be to think more about the larger scale flow. It does feel a little bit like a parade, but unfortunately not in a good way. A thing happens, then another thing happens, and then something else happens. But it's not really clear why.

Thanks for the review.  Your observations are quite accurate ... this is an abridged version of the original work.  I wasn't happy with sections that I thought were not up to my standards and I deleted them.  I think I will now go back and see if I can rework them to my satisfaction and reincorporate them into the story line.  It's somewhat frustrating when the work is uneven.  The parts I deleted were from a very early version of the work - when my skill set was more limited and less developed.

Hi - I continued to work on the piece and this is the unabridged version ... with many tweaks.  The last review stated it was a series of somewhat unconnected sections: so let me expand on my idea for the work.  This is a group of Vagabonds that wake up and decide to walk towards town.  One the way they experience different moods and events ...  a bit of fun/wildness - some gentility and somberness/heartache before the final march on-wards.  Please excuse the engraving as it is not finished.   It is still a work in progress - however, nearly completion.  All comments appreciated.
