The Treasures of Li Quan

The Legends Series #1 – A short story

Twelve-year-old Thomas Linton lives with his parents, Charlie and Mary, in their seaside home in Ogunquit, Maine. Tom fell victim to the polio epidemic of 1949. He wears a brace on his right leg and walks with crutches, or is pushed in a wheelchair by his father.
On August 8, 1951, the family visits an old curiosity shop in Kennebunkport. It is run by a portly old oriental man whose bare belly protrudes over his baggy trousers.
Tom enters the shop as a sad young boy, but emerges with a gift that will radically alter his outlook on life.
Join Tom as he discovers ‘The Treasures of Li Quan’.

About lenxbob

I was born in 1946 - the first year of the Baby Boomers. For most of my life, I lived in the Berkshire Hills of western Massachusetts - Pittsfield, Richmond and Lenox. I graduated from the University of Massachusetts in Amherst in 1968 with a BS in Mathematics. From 1968-1970, I did a two-year stint in the Peace Corps in the Philippines teaching high school modern mathematics. I later taught for eleven years and then became a computer programmer/analyst and eventually an MIS Director. I currently winter in Florida and summer in upstate NY - with my 37-year-old African Gray Parrot, Little Pete. I enjoy playing piano and guitar as well as painting watercolors. I started writing poetry when I was in my early teens. It has always brought me joy to express my emotions in writing. My poems tend to be quite straightforward. You won't need a dictionary or an encyclopedia to comprehend them. I like my poems to flow easily, and have the reader flow with my thoughts.
