"Buffalo Plaid' was excluded from my book, MUSICAL MORPHINE: Transforming Pain One Note at Time," not because my editor didn't like it, but because I needed to cut a little in a particular chapter. The story takes place one winter in the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York when I was working at Mountain Valley Hospice as a Certified Music Practitioner. The story has never been published, although I have submitted it for inclusion on a music website.
As an author, since I never toss anything I write, I am gifting "Buffalo Plaid" to you for the holidays all wrapped up in its new title with a few extra trimmings, too. Enjoy.
