Evergreen and Always
I read a lot of online content. Unfortunately, most of it is just bland words that don't leave an impression. When I run across a story that speaks to me, I like to share it. I found one!
"Evergreen and Always" is a Christmas story. (Yes, I'm way behind in my reading.) You can read it at http://raygunrevival.com/Published/RGR_0049_2008_12.pdf . Scroll down to Page 9.
Alice M. Roelke took a story that has been done hundreds of times and populated it with interesting characters. It's only five pages long, but I'll remember it.
Oh, the rest of the mag may be good too. I only had time to read this one story. If you have more time, look around and check out the others.
Read and enjoy.
