John Cory, can this man write or what..

I get many political emails..too many to read most days. This morning one of my favorite sites, TruthOut.org sent me something special. It was special only because of the tiny link at the bottom of the page. The link went to John Cory's website. John is a Vietnam Vet. John is also a beautiful, moving writer of words. John has learned how to quell the demons by writing about them. He weaves beautiful prose into visions in your minds eye. What made me click the link to his site was that he used some of Hunter's words in his Truthout article..I loved that crazy Hunter S. Thompson so I had to go look at John's words. They are worth your time. They will make you see in you mind what you read on the page. One particular story moved me to tears. Its just a short story but in the end it made me smile through my tears. What a writer he is..magnificent and expressive.

The title of the story: When snowflakes sing

Its an awesome, moving piece. Go read it if you have a few minutes to spare. You won't be sorry you did, I promise. It's not political, its beautiful and sad... but uplifting at the end, leaving you feeling good, not bad. The link is here.
