stories, stories, stories

In honour of the greatest story ever told - the birth, life, death and resurrection of Jesus - I am piling on stories for the month of December. Some have been published, some aren't published yet, some may never be published. A few are experimental, a few aren't fine-tuned and polished, a few I'm not sure about. Long, short, tragic, comic, straightforward, labyrinthine - all kinds of stories, many of which have never seen the light of day in the public eye . . . until now.

I hope you find one or two of the unknowns that you will enjoy.

Merry Christ Mass, happy holydays (that's what holidays stands for), Season of the Incarnation's Greetings, God rest you merry!

And also to you and yours, Murray. May the sacred season bring you treasures in unexpected places.

O felix culpa quae talem et tantum meruit habere redemptorem!

"O felix culpa quae talem et tantum meruit habere redemptorem!" Oh, happy fault that merited...something...such and so great?...a Redeemer. Thomas Aquinas?

What fun 'tis being challenged by an author's comment in response to a reader's comment! That's a first.

Augustine. And I've heard it translated Redeemer or redemption. Seems to me the Latin lends itself more to redemption, but we need a Latin scholar to be absolutely precise. Fiat lux!

"Fiat lux!" Let there be light, indeed! Bless you, light-bearer. Your words nourish our "light-starved souls," to use Wee Highlander's lovely phrase.
