It’s a Sin to Tell a Lie

By: Jason Miller

Description: Two people, an old man and an old woman, meet in their doctor’s waiting room. They begin a casual conversation, and he is soon revealed as a would-be poet and she as a dreamer who fancies that she has had much more in life than is actually the case. But, as they tell ever more outrageous fibs to each other, the deeper truth of their essential loneliness emerges—and in a very touching way they “find” each other, and the friendship and concern of another human being which they both need so desperately.

Postcards

Description: For thirty years Margaret and Leonardo have sat each day at adjoining desks, writing postcards to famous people, without ever getting any answers. Having run out of live personages to write to they decide to address their cards to the famous dead—but, suddenly, much to their consternation, a reply does arrive. Its effect is shattering, and brings on a poignant revelation of the unspoken feelings which have, through all the years, lay dormant beneath the calm surface of their very correct relationship.
