Get to know writer PJ Gourley:
1) What is your very short story about?
My story is about a man whom sought wealth and power as his elixir to true happiness. Now, much older and alone, he sits on a park bench. The same park bench that his parents had sat on while watching him play as a child. He remembers the love and joy his family shared during those times. Nothing else mattered. That’s all he ever needed. Soon afterwards, tragedy struck. He was forced to grow up. Money, and the power that came with it, became his surrogate family. Now, years later, no children, broken marriages, and lost friendships, he is alone pondering his future and remembering his past. Was it all worth it?
