The Short Stories
These short stories were written with the intention of the reader or listener learning or at least taking something away from the story. If a philosopher, pessimist, psychologist, optimist, and spiritual person sat down to create stories…they would create something like this. These stories represent the simplest, most beautiful things in life to the sad, heartfelt moments that make us beautifully human.
