Wow, this was awesome. One of my favorites this week! Love it!
A wonderful entry! You had the language style just right for the times and created a masterpiece.
Wow. Outstanding work here! Not only is your writing superb, but the way that you formatted the piece made it even better!

You should get top honors just for being able to format that start properly at the end. LOL! Sometimes it's hard to get the HTML tags to work just right.

All kidding aside, this was VERY GOOD!
Whoops. I meant to say format that "star" properly in my last comment. :)
Cat, this is simply wonderful. It is a diary complete with musical accompaniment. It is as if the 3 kings were inside the writer's mind, begging their story to be told. And told it was, so well. And the star? Well, that was a little magic that made this complete...a little surprise present just like at Christmas

Beautiful - and gorgeous language (how long did you spend formatting that star????). Very well done, dear Cat
This is an incredible account from the eyes of one of the magi.

I love this, "fishermen plucking their livelihood from the earth's generous fount" and "barren moorland to the foot of a treacherous mountain range seemingly inhabited only by clouds" Your title is perfect for this wonderfully written account.
