Free Fiction Monday: Ghosts of Christmas Present
Alone for Christmas, Michela longs for the past, the future—anything but the present. The present holds pain, loneliness, longing, loathing. The present offers nothing but ghosts and nightmares about deeds that cannot be undone. To see her son again, Michela must face her ghosts on this Christmas Eve night—even if by doing so she becomes one herself.

Wow. This one is going to stay with me for a long time….
Thanks, Dayle. 🙂
I loved this story. Skillfully written, of course — but what a sensibility, what a reading of the Christmas story, the Easter story, and the human heart.
Thank you, Dave.
