The art of a short story is hard to master. Brevity is the soul of wit, as they say. But short stories are very much like our lives; snapshots of a longer story with nuance, chaos, and length.
Short stories allow us to savor a moment, reminding us to slow down and enjoy the short stories we witness every day. Every passerby is a short story, every breath, every heartbeat.
Be brief, be present, read short stories.
