Tales by Tom

This podcast showcases the audio stories of Tom Cagley Sr.

Jan 26, 2014

Welcome to Tales By Tom. This is the eleventh installment of Tom Cagley Sr's Novella entitled, “The Medal, Revisited. A Blessing from Rome”   

The Medal, Revsited. A Blessing from Rome is a multi-installment story.  This version of The Medal is a reimagining of a story Tom Cagley Sr has returned to many times.  The story is a powerful mixture of memories and imaginings that will paint a vivid picture for the listener.  

Story so far: Charlie and Cal play golf and visit an Irish pub afterwards. Charlie tells his brother that his “affair” with Amber is over. Charlie describes what Amber meant to him. Charlie and Cal discuss Maggie, the medal and generally reconnect.

This instalment 

On the flight home, Cal is all about daydreams, those things that drive us on. Then Charlie calls and tells Cal he’s moving back in with Rhoda. Rhoda calls later, tells Cal that Charlie has come home and apologizes for her phone outburst. Cal explains to her his motivation for helping his brother make the contact with Amber.
