Short stories for redemption
A new friend of mine, Dominick Mastri, has started a short story blog. I highly recommend checking it out. He's a very talented writer and the subject matter is all centered around personal stories of questionable behavior. The purpose is to atone for past mistakes by "actively remembering" instead of forgetting. I've met several people in the past few months who have the drive to make up for their past. In some cases it seems like a false motive. The past is gone and making your current life about fixing it seems wasteful. In this case however, the writing is adding content to the current life, enriching it. Sort of killing two birds with one stone. I wish him all the best with this new endeavor and will eagerly continue reading. The link is now on the left and here.
