Isn’t it great that you can read short stories in a short time and almost anywhere? I read one while I was waiting in the pick up line at school and another one while my daughter was at ballet class the other day. Read it and get over with! Right? ……… Wrong!
Good short stories stay with you like memories, they keep reminding you of relationships, of time elapsed, of your responsibilities, of you not paying attention to your loved ones, of mundane activities like washing, climbing mountains(not really mundane) of grudges that you might have, of mourning,of praises for somebody. They are YOU.
Long after you read them, they linger in your psyche, some etch themselves in your thoughts forever.
My next post will have links to some of the most beautiful short stories of our times.
