Mountain Rain

     A wonderful online journal, Roadside Fiction published my story, "Mountain Rain".  It comes at a perfect time.  It is a story that confronts the unknown, what we can sometimes call a spiritual or even a synchronous event. 
    The story is set in a town, Port de la Selva, Spain, which is down the mountain from a Benedictine monastery, San Pere de Rodes.  The records of the monastery date back to 878.  It reached its maximum importance in the 11th and 12th centuries.  What suprised me was that at one point it was run by the abbot and his son.  Celibacy was not always a given in the Catholic church.
