Log Cabin Christmas (Sample)
When I was a boy we had two Christmases. The first one was in the log cabin where we lived, and where Papa made sure that Santa Claus came on Christmas Eve while we slept. The cabin Christmas was pretty basic, a pine top, fastened to the wooden floor, near the fireplace, some tinsel, and a few candles. There was fruit (one apple, one orange, and one tangerine), hard candy in the big work sock transformed into a stocking, nailed to the mantel above the fireplace. This telling makes it sound pitiful, but in my mind, there was magic in each of my Boyhood Christmases.
GW Newton spends most of his time either writing (short stories, fiction, history), or researching; Bible, genealogy, elegies, epitaphs, eulogies, odes, and then he just makes up stuff; he calls it Memagination. He runs the blogs Wiregrass Tales, A Bunch of Wiregrass, and Wayne Writes.
