  • The Boy Who Gave Away His Mother's Shoes

    The Boy Who Gave Away His Mother’s Shoes

    TO THE READER

    So many hats we must wear in today’s complex society! Even under a single hat or head covering, our thoughts are conceived, varied and fast-paced. I love the way our society functions and how determined we usually are to be part of the way it works. I also appreciate that many of us still can find comfort in personal, quiet time. For me, and hopefully for you, reading is precious time. The wonder that books and stories captured in our minds lets us travel far and near and permits us to go beyond the past or into the future as our minds allow. In reading stories, travel is done with comfort and satisfaction. For some of us, good story telling also promotes diverse cultural understanding.

    The stories in this book allow us to forget about the hat we usually wear at the time we pick up a book. We can be introduced to familiar or unique persons with whom we may have a symbiotic experience. With any good read, you can change to mix with the characters when they become introduced into your life.

    Since reading is such an individualistic endeavor of choice to achieve enjoyment and distraction, it is probably the best selection to add entertainment to your day. This may include new thoughts that take us away from the structures that trap us with responsibilities.

    These stories are like having a friendly companion who distracts us from chores or the dwelling on more mundane callings. Rethinking the plots in these stories may also add to some of your personal recollections. I say this because, for me, writing stories triggered thoughts about other experiences I have had. I find that the more I have to think about, the more I have in my head to record. Enjoy!

  • Different Coins in the Fountain Volume II

    Different Coins in the Fountain Volume II

    Dear Reader,

    If you consider yourselves a busy person, one that goes from task to task with little respite in-between, then this book is made to order for you. On the other hand, if you do not have time constraints, you will have the luxury of reading and discussing these stories with your friends. I believe my book is full of bang-bang short stories with multiple plots that might fit into your on-the-move regimen.

    If entertainment is your motivation, you, too, are a splendid candidate to keep Different Coins in the Fountain by your favorite chair or by the side of your bed.

    Any lifestyle can benefit from minutes or hours of reading stories that are succinct. Since we come from different cultures, flipping “coins” unto a fountain represent our hopes to obtain the similar things in life that we all cherish. We are inclined to be tempted to be at the “fountain.” How would you sum up your story? Everyone has a story, and, at different stages of life, there’s a different story.

    Sincerely,

    Carlos V. Cornejo
