Patrick's Writing


At the moment of death we will not be judged by the amount of work we have done but by the weight of love we have put into our work.

"The Best That I Could Do"
Stories by Patrick Combs
Ah, the stories we could tell
And if it all blows up and goes to Hell
I wish that we could sit apon a bed in some motel
And listen to the stories we could tell
- John Sebastian

These are stories from my life. The first story I wrote was my $95,000 story. I wrote it as a matter of self-defense, (to protect myself from a mad-bank), and finishing it took a long, but I was hooked and kept writing up other stories. I intend these stories to be nothing more than my own journal of times I never want to forget. But I post them publicly in case you find at least one of them to be time well spent.
