Short Story

When she opened her eyes, she was sad to see that the lemon tree was still rooted firmly in the ground.

I love a short story. Actually I do, I really like this. And I'm not known for my love of modernist minimalism crap.

But it raises lots of questions and reminds me of that poem about the plums that were taken out of the fridge (dammit, name escapes me).

;o)

so short I read it twice :)

and it was still as good the second time round :)

shall be back, to browse your larger longer selections/offerings...

(would have read more now, but time is short and I got stuck in your tradition/habit thanksgiving piece on one of your many blogs)

Hi, Jay

I like this...

Have you read any of Amy Hempel's short stories?

I'm sad to say that I haven't read Williams or Hempel, but I promise to look them both up. I appreciate sending me that way.

As for tradition: I like the way you think. Maybe it is. This time next year, drinks are on me.

Great "Cellar Door" post :)

I must work on the whole brevity thing.
