The most important moments in peoples lives
the most touching
the most scarring
the most significant
seem the be the ones we care the least about. For real people at least. We care so much more about these moments are catalysts for other things. Tragic that the individual moments are footnotes for less significant things to make them more easily digestible.
Our stories are very linear and well defined. We care as much for the syringe as the medicine it contains. Caring very little if the syringe is actually necessary.

I’ve been working on a small five piece collection of some of the flash fiction I’ve written over the years. I had initially intended to make it longer but chose against this inclination. Instead I pared it down the five I like the most. Not a single one longer than two pages. I’m posting an early copy of it in case anyone is interested in poking through. I’m open to feed back and would really appreciate a couple eyes proofing.
Shallow in PDF.
