An Unrecorded Cades Cove Memory, 1980

Writing little stories and vignettes from memories pulled is what I do when life allows. And when I say ‘stories’ I don’t mean fiction, I mean stories. But there are some stories that I choose not to write down, stories that will leave when I do. Maybe someone else–and most stories involve someone else–will tell it, if they haven’t left yet, but that will be a different story.
