Short Stories and Memories of a Wannabe Writer. This is a collection of some of the articles I have written over the years, some short stories and other memories from over the years. I wrote the short stories for my own amusement but decided to compile them into a book, these stories were to keep me from going mad when I retired and my beautiful wife died in 2012, it was Sally who told me I could write as I use to write short stories and read them to her, that is when I started to compile the other books I have placed at the end of this book. Now I am by myself it takes away the hurt and into my other world of fantasy and in some cases back to my child hood years when we lived in Bletchley Park during WWII. I do hope you enjoy my meanderings about some of the things I have compiled here. Thank You so Very Much. Neville J. Anderson-Budd.
Between the Spaces of A Writer's Life collects just some of my personal reflections on the everyday human condition, at least as I myself have observed and participated in it. And I think my experiences will be recognizable in others' lives. I've tried to retain my sense of humor where it is appropriate! However, so many individuals lie around like rocks, either expecting to be waited on hand and foot, and/or using their arrogance to annoy and bully others. It is for the rest of us to pay attention, to throw up an arm in our own defense, and to step in and fight for others where there is any hope of not making things worse for them. Even then, we are obligated to speak up or act in some way on their behalf. The smallest kind gesture can lift their spirits and give them the courage to go on. Note that I have left the grand philosophizing to those who enjoy taking on something larger than windmills. It is the smaller aggravations and repeated insults that can wear us down and erode our self-esteem, like the stinging abuse of wind and rain against the canyon walls of the western states over many decades. We deal with the ongoing maintenance chores of life, push back when someone does not give the proper service value, or worse, starts to act as if he/she (or they) owns us. Life is full of challenges and frustrations to be resolved. Sometimes we must wait for karma to catch up with the offenders. Retribution is the first law of the universe, after all. And should you have reason not to believe this now, stick around! And finally, I've made no attempt to please everyone. Consider yourself warned!
