Episode 285: Holiday Reading

Episode 285 of the CMP, a Creativity Matters Podcast

In this episode of the CMP, a reading of the Gift of the Magi by O. Henry. There is a brief intro before the reading of the classic short story. In the intro… trees, light, Charlie Brown’s Christmas tree, and Mr. Willowby’s Christmas Tree. The Gift of the Magi short story is Christmas-themed, but I hope that this story is one to which everyone can relate. I am sensitive to the diversity of my listeners, but I hope you give this story a listen. Reading it for this podcast really struck me in light of current events and realities. I hope you, too, will enjoy the simple generosity and love in this story — focus on that more than on whether or not these characters were foolish. Whether wise or not, their hearts were in the right place.
