Those who don’t follow my flash fiction and short story fiction blog titled Imaginings of a Grateful Man http://imaginingsofagratefulman.com missed about a dozen flash fiction and short stories in just the last week including those about:
A survivor of the doomed RMS Titanic
What WWII slave laborers in Nazi Germany do to help the war effort
How a young man who doesn’t listen to his mother accidentally starts a war
A group of women who devise a plan to escape slavery
Two stories about how fateful decisions change everything
How getting stranded on a deserted island is the best thing that happened to a man
A club of little old ladies makes a violent purse snatcher rue the day he stole one of their purses
I'm awed by the beauty of nature and the power of love and gratitude. Some of my favorite sensory experiences include waves crashing on rocky shores, waterways in ancient redwood and fern-filled forests, and rain. My wife and I have been married since 1979. We have 3 adult children and 5 grandchildren. I manage a wealth management firm that I founded in 2003. My Beloved is a Special Education teacher for Kindergartners and First Graders. I'm a published author of approximately 60 books in a variety of genres for grownups and children.

I did miss! Thank for drawing my attention to it!
I’m off to get some ice-cream and will enjoy the reading later 🙂
I hope you enjoy the ice cream and the stories, Val.
Unfortunately Russ…. I’m having trouble keeping up with regular reading…tired and other issues… so haven’t been able to read your fiction blogs…. Diane
No worries, Diane. I’m saddened to hear that your sleep issues are still heavily impacting you.
Actually Russ, I am starting to sleep more.. but I think my body has just been under stress for so long ..it’s going to take a while to get stronger… and there are a couple of other medical issues that I’m still dealing with…but thanks for caring…. Diane
I appreciate your update, Diane. I’m glad you are at least getting some more sleep. Thank you for brightening my day.
Wish I had the time… at the mo just too many things happening…
No worries, bulldog. I understand. My flash fiction stories tend to only be about three paragraphs long, so if you ever need a brief mental break from the many things happening in your life…
