The story comes through with a finished jig saw puzzle of a type of fountain of youth in reverie.

Contrary to the feel of the title, the ending catharsis is peacefully uplifting.After writing the story (“Coal & Coca-Cola,” available on KINDLE in two editions, abridged and unabridged) of my Moms bakery start up in The Malt Shop in Florence, Colorado in the 50s, I had wanted to write a parallel story about my Moms sister, my aunt Annie Rocchio, who had been the trusted employed of the Florence Creamery in 1943 when the owner and his wife needed to sell the creamery and offered it to Annie, saying, “We know you can do it- weve seen how hard you work.” As was the case with each of my true stories of individuals of quiet grit, this one took off on its own into a theme rooted into Annies life from her perspective of telling it to me, when she was a cherished, contented resident of St.

Josephs Manor, a clean, pleasant nursing home in Florence, located several blocks away, around the curve of the Main Street bend, from where The Malt Shop had been when owned by Annie and her two sisters, Mary and Margie.A growing collection of KINDLE photo enhanced short stories around the local coal mining industry has settled into the term Visceral History. This collection is loosely connected to this story and to Coal & Coca-Cola.

Each offering stands alone, yet each also works into the others, and into the themes developed in my novel series opened by THE ROSE AND THE PYRAMID. The link has to do with history as a concept as well as a reality. VISCERAL HISTORY is my term for true stories told from the gut, usually featuring the perspective of the author in addition to one or a small number of individuals. This term had been defined with more detail in most of the full Kindle editions, which have been updated to April 2, 2012 and later.

All 8 are available in KINDLE editions w/photos, updated and upgraded to April 2, 2012 or later. The 8th VH went live on Amazon Kindle August 8, 2012.Winter editions of some of these VHs are offered free from one to five days to honor the 160 year era of mining in Fremont County Colorado, and to remind that in days long gone receiving a LUMP OF COAL in a Christmas stocking was a cherished blessing for warmth and prosperity during cold hard times.
