Rudyard Kipling once said that if history was taught in the form of stories, it would never be forgotten. As a reformed teacher and chronic student, I can attest that ALL lessons framed in such a manner succeed. Stories have that power, to impress the memory and strengthen the soul. In my mind, the whole of human civilization rests on the desire to create stories: our relationships, our history, our science, our architecture . . . heck, even our children are living records of their parents.
What follows are several stories I’ve written over the years. Much like sausage meats, long tales stuffed within a small solitary space inevitably resemble something perverse; thus, I have opened up my work to this page, making it easier to find and read.
