Welcome to the second instalment of my short story collection I have titled, "A Man of Letters." The stories in this collection are all in the form of letters or about letters. We have a two stories this week that I think you will enjoy!
Story Three: A Book Came in the Mail
When filling out a thin, diary type book that came from my grandchildren in Kansas, I didn’t know exactly where to start. And where would I stop? So, I answered the questions, using more space than allowed. And when the little book asked me for my favorite photograph, where should I go for that one? In a 70+ year lifetime, I should pick one? But in the end, I did ---damn tough, though. Sum up a lifetime in one book? I added a few pages and gave it a go.
Intro for 4th story: A Fable, an Allegory or a Parable
Whatever you might call this little story, I think you’ll find the message could be life-shaping. The lesson I learned from it has been with me ever since that otherwise uneventful afternoon. Do try this at home!
I encourage you to provide feedback on this story or any of the earlier shorts by email at email@example.com or by voicemail at 1 206 339 5456.
