Helen Keller once said, “The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched—they must be felt with the heart.”
The heart is an odd thing. Despite its physical durability it can be shattered by a mere word. Despite its practical usefulness it can leave us flustered and vulnerable in the presence of a charming smile.
In selecting stories for Flash Fiction Online I’m always looking for stories that tell me something about the fragile, vulnerable, yet resilient qualities of the human heart. The three stories you’re about to read explore three aspects of the heart: Grief, Love, and Longing.
I’ll let you decide which is which.
