Kender MacGowan, a devout patriot, reluctant romantic, sarcastic cynic and victim of love writes poetry as a cheap alternative to therapy, hoping that somewhere karma will pile up in his favor. He sounds the alarm about the dangers to losing our freedoms to a society slipping into the dead ends of socialism from a compound in Southern California, where he samples copious amounts of single malt scotch and practices the ancient arts of the Curmudgeon.
When the land was new and magic flowed freely and elves walked the earth with man, there was an elusive Queen of the Elves and legend said her heart could not be tamed by man. This is the story of the man who tamed that heart, and then let it go wild again.
Remember...in your dreams?
on April 28, 2011
Remember...in your dreams is an astounding work of, as the author calls it, "non-fiction fiction." Seeing the snapshots of life through the eyes of a grandfather sharing, via astral travel, important, memorable or funny moments of his life with his grandson is entertaining and gives one pause to remember that every moment, every event that happens could become an important memory in someone's life, no matter how inconsequential it might seem to you.
I also see Remember...in your dreams to be a letter from grandfather to grandson, passing along family history and stories that would otherwise be lost to time, in an effort to help him remember where he comes from, so that he might know where he's headed.
It's a great read, and I wholeheartedly suggest it to anyone looking for an inventive story that reminds you of the importance of family and a grandfathers soft, sweet love for his grandchildren.
I am biased as I am included in this wonderful collection of talented writers stretching their abilities by shrinking their stories. Confined to 100 words or less, 21 of us learned a new twist on storytelling, an economy of words and how verbose we usually are without the self imposed shackles of brevity. We sincerely hope you enjoy, share and, if you're so inclined, review A Flash Of Inspiration.
I know we enjoyed bringing it to you.
