Welcome to the eleventh (10 and 11 are out of order on purpose) installment 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 15…Paying it forward at Las Brisas ----Not a big deal, my son Mark told me after he’d done it, but what a gesture --- first, to think about doing it, then, second, doing it. I think that than more often you do things liked this, the more it must come to your mind. We should all try it.
Story 16…A letter to my high school in 2002. I wrote it in reply to theirs, wanting an anecdote about a teacher we’d had back then in the dark ages---any teacher. I gave them one they didn’t expect, and I was only able to accomplish this feat because:
A. One of my neighbors moved
B. The coach made me mad
C. It was getting dark and I had to concentrate really hard.
I encourage you to provide feedback on this story or any of the earlier shorts by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by voicemail at 1 206 339 5456.
