MAY … alisonearlsALOUD offer two new ‘very short stories‘ for you reading/listening interest??

Solomon the News” and “Ernst & Karl” bring three peaceful characters to the fore, the first of whom was not a creation of mine but of an anonymous origamist.

In a world where everyone is inundated by demands and plans, peace seems hard to come by. Between work and dreams, there’s no time for calm within the present. But at the end of it all, that’s always where we find ourselves. In the present. So if there’s no way you can get off the treadmill, try and factor in some stops for maintenance. Then you can breathe in the life as it’s happening. While you sit quietly in your own companionable silence. “Solomon the News” and “Ernst & Karl” make the most of their time in the present. Because, sooner or later, even that’s is something that will slip through our fingers.

So stop now. And sit. You don’t even have to read or listen to a story. But you do have to make time to stop looking back or moving forward. And just be.

Or maybe that’s just me.
