To The Crying Girl Who Made Me Think (Excerpt from “My Little Book of Essays”)

I wrote this quite a few years back (maybe 16 years ago, maybe a little more) and never really got around to getting it to where I wanted it. As I was working on some things tonight I came across it again and thought that maybe I’d pass it along.

Just so you know… I wrote the original part of this on the plane and gave it to the girl after I collected my luggage. When I got home I sat down at my desk and did my best to reconstruct the letter. I think it is pretty close to what I originally wrote, but I can’t be certain of that fact. And, since that time I have often wondered if she ever read it, or if it helped her at all. I hope it did. And, if it did not… well, I know it helped me. And, maybe, just maybe, for some of you… it might help, as well.

Communication is Complicated, At Best

 by Senator Brett

 

A letter.

Dear Dad,

How are you? More importantly, where are you? I heard that you were home, but I also know that you do love your travels, and I think I might know where you might be spending your days, but I’m not exactly sure so I’m just sending this letter to the house. I trust that it will reach you in fair time. Continue reading

For All The Lovers Out There (Excerpt from the short story “The Absence of Tomorrow”)

Excerpt from “The Absence of Tomorrow”

by Senator Brett

He turned and looked at her, her face softened by the glow of the amber light. “Why?” he asked. “How, you ask?” And then he paused and added Continue reading

The Introduction of the Tuckas (Excerpt from Children’s Book)

I’ve been asked several times to better explain the Tuckas after the last excerpt, so here is a portion of the book from before the last post. It happens earlier in the book and lightly explains what the Tuckas are, and how they relate to the story. There’s more, but this should suffice.
