FULL MOON INSIDE A RED SKY
by Mel Nieves
November is the season of endings and beginnings. It is also the time of Esbat, where one is free to frolic and amuse oneself, but it is also a time when anything you are holding onto, for which you’re hoping for some kind of resolution from can finally be released from ones soul into the night air and it is on one such night underneath a full moon inside a red sky where at Sacco’s Café-Bistro, Lisa Crosco and Anthony Santoro with the help of a magical and mystical Maitre d’, meet; these two strangers, both with wounded hearts will discover that the possibilities of true love just might be only one single fallen snowflake away.
