Musea Annual Christmas Stories

Musea has an annual tradition – a Christmas story for the December issue. Did you miss any of them?

There is a lot I like to put into each short story, and not much room to squeeze it into -only 8 pages per Musea issue, with the front page being a photo! That means everything has to happen in 7 pages.

I try to write, so that each story first HAS a story, a good plot. Then some interesting characters caught up in something challenging, some connection to Christmas, and finally a deeper meaning behind the top story. Maybe even a couple of layers of meaning. Hopefully the stories take you somewhere, that you feel better about visiting.

Here is a summary of the last 14 years worth. Enjoy. – Tom.

=============================

My pocket is empty,
last penny in my hand.
I toss it up.
It’s caught by the wind.
And lands as a wish
in the depths of the well
shimmering through the water
as it falls …
I close my eyes
and wait until …
