from the Farm
is full of surprises and adventures that too often go unnoticed
in the course of everyday living. Only when we take the
time to look back on our memories, do we realize that it is the
simple events that make our lives rich. In the following
stories, I share the memories and (sometimes fabricated) adventures
of my youth through invented characters who live in the fictional
small town of Glenfield, Maine. (I would probably be in
big trouble if I used real names and actual places!) At
the time, life seemed very ordinary, and occasionally, even a
little boring. But now, I realize just how wonderful and
full those days were. More than that, looking back has
taught me to look forward with a sense of expectancy and appreciation
for every moment we have to share with friends and family.
So, sit back, relax and read a few of these short stories. And when you
are done, consider your own life. I bet there are memories, adventures
and special moments, just waiting to be remembered, enjoyed and retold. Share
them with someone special.
