Short Stories and Essays
From the uplifting experience of a friend's confirmation service to a first-hand account of the church shooting in 2008, from the narrow world of small-town life to the unexpected diagnostic techniques of a new doctor, these eleven short pieces - ten stories and one poem - sometimes funny, sometimes touching, sometimes horrific, sometimes inspiring, offer brief looks into my life and the lives of those around me. Drawn from the past half century or so, these vignettes illustrate some of the breadth and depth of what can be seen and experienced in an ordinary life's journey. Of course the beauty and mystery of it all is that there is so much more, it is so wide and so deep, that what we can see and hear and feel are only glimpses.
