Welcome to Tales By Tom. We begin a new series that is titled Plain and Simple! The first two stories have a holiday flavor!
The stories are:
The Spirit of Thanksgiving: If you reflect at this time of year on your blessings, I bet the list is long. Think of what we have, and be grateful in word and deed --- and maybe even say it out loud as you’re having a mimosa and trying to carve the turkey. It would be at that point, as in my reflections that I’d bring up what Cicero said. What about you?
Christmas Plain and Simple: This story, a gift from a friend of mine through the Internet (how did he know it was about my grandfather?), should strike home to many of you who remember more humble beginnings and how we reacted to them as a child. Christmas is magic --- if we let it be.
I encourage you to provide feedback on these stories or any of the earlier shorts by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by voicemail at 1 206 339 5456.
Check out the podcast http://www.talesbytom.com and on downloadable iTunes at http://bit.ly/yk9BC
The music is a song titled "Rhapsody" by Andy Guthrie and was supplied Music Alley from Mevio (www.musicalley.com).
See you in two weeks!
