I sometimes ask myself why reading makes me happy and fulfilled. What attracts me to reading the works of the many authors who entertain and cleverly engage me in their great reads frequently provide me pleasurable time. Stories long and short not only fill in the small spaces I have in a day but, also contribute to my thinking that we all live among thousands of stories. Movies try to be well- told stories, and, sometimes, accomplish to provide a tight, well written plot….a story to be savored from beginning to end.
So, if life is made wonderful with stories that whirl about us, why not attempt to capture some of them? Once captured, stories are given a long- life expectancy and provide the author with something he once owned. The stories you are about to read are brief and attempt to tell about what comes to mind with what I saw, heard, or fantasized when I was inspired to change how I viewed my surroundings.
I hope you will find merit in what I have jotted down for you.
