The Sun Sisters: a short story
I really like the story called "The Sun Sisters" (full text). It's a Chinese story collected in Margaret Read MacDonald's Three-Minute Tales. I haven't yet told it, but I hope it becomes one of my stories. I'm a fan of stories that have to do with the creation and manipulation of textiles. Coincidentally, I read this story right around the time Lucia asked me why she wasn't supposed to stare directly at the sun. I was glad to have a story for her.
