A book of short stories from my life.
We all have memories from the past. Some are happy, others sad. Some memories are reflections of how we felt at points of time as history unfolded around us. Other memories provide grist to explain or bing meaning to life changing events. Regardless, I believe these memories are worth putting down on paper. Most importantly for me the writer and I hope for the reader as well.
These stories are the way I saw things then or now when looking back. You may not agree with my interpretation of events or my points of view and that is okay with me. As the book title proclaims it's my story and I'm sticking to it. I hope you enjoy.
