“God lives in a nursing home in Wisconsin a short story by Diane DeVillers

Read my story about an elderly man who lived in a nursing home who was the oldest person I ever met. Because of a stroke the only word he could say was the word “One”. After awhile I developed a way to decipher his language. We became good friends.

This first appeared in ‘Setting Forth” an online magazine Nov of 2014.

Heron from Oscar's friend in CA Check out my short story that was published in a new literay online magazine called Setting Forth from Eugene Oregon.

They are always looking for entries of poetry, fiction, nonfiction, essays, illustrations and readership is growing. It’s one of the most insipiring online magazines out there.

Katherine Valentino is the editor and it went live last year in July 2014. She even helped my story by some downright thoughtful editing. She made me look good and i need all the help I can get.
