Synkroniciti is overjoyed to present Clocks::Corn, a delightful short story by Ron Pullins in the magic realism vein. Dada is a traveling bookseller who also sells a variety of clocks. Today he is selling at the university where he used to teach, and, knocking at his old office door, he meets another wounded soul with a strange coping mechanism. How often in life do we talk past each other without realizing our similarities and celebrating our survival strategies?
We will be sharing a little of Ron’s work here today, but, if you want to read this ingenious story, you should subscribe or purchase the issue.
Ron Pullins is a (writer, entity, clock) who lives in (the moment, Tucson). Above all else he relishes moments when he and a stranger share some odd space in words (reading them, being read, talking, corresponding), however (brief those moments are, long those moments live).
