Once again his language is magic. Instead of falling into the "he or she said" pitfall, the dialogue takes on the action of the predominant emotion.
If he wants to reach for a friend, the words reach. And the way he breaks his sentences to evoke emotional pauses is poetic. Plus it makes his stories delectably quick to read. The perfect combination of length and pause. But his prose is not even the most powerful thing about his writing. In a way, his writing transcends language. Here we have an ordinary year-old taxi driver who is going nowhere with his life and has no plans to ever make something of himself either.
When Ed inadvertently foils a bank robbery, he is praised as a local hero. Some people have it in them to make a stand, to be more than ordinary. Written on the ace of diamonds are three addresses.
Ed must figure out who is in need of help at these locations and what he can do to touch their lives. Sometimes the messages are easy to deliver, other times they require all he can muster to give. But always he finds the courage to follow through.
And his answers are never what I would expect. But they say God walks with those people without them ever knowing it. But what we fail to realize is what we get out of it is more than what we put in it.
We find our own names on an ace and we can take this message as ours: that anyone, no matter how ordinary can be great, and put it to practice in our own lives. Or we can discard our aces and go back to going through the motions.
