My dad passed away on Wednesday. Grief aside, I’ve been struck how his stories have framed and reframed his life, especially at the end. It’s important because we all are the accumulation of our stories, and the sooner we realize that the sooner we become the hero of our own story.




Coffee Times is not just a publication, but a movement to build a mutually supportive community that encourages active reading and better writing.
