I was recently contacted by a high school in Baltimore for permission to use some of my short stories in their school curriculum. They had already been studying the stories for inner peace in a Language Arts Class and wanted permission to use the stories in their curriculum handbook. Of course I said yes, and I thought I would share one with you too…
A bird was flying across the sky. It landed on a lawn. The air was fresh, the breeze was light, and the sun was cool. The bird noticed someone crying in the distance, sitting on a lawn chair outside of a house.
When the crying had finished, the bird flew over to the person, who now looked corpse-like on the chair.
"What's happened?" chirped the bird.
"I'm not sure if I'll ever get the job I want," said the person, with a tone of resignation.
