|"Anyone who tells a story speaks a world into being." ~ Michael Williams
Do you remember the days of storytelling? Grandchildren, cousins, parents, aunts, and uncles gathered around the storyteller, usually a grandparent, and listened, enthralled, to stories of "the olden days." I loved those times. I loved the feeling of family as much as the stories themselves.
I didn't mind a bit of some of the stories were exaggerated. In fact, I preferred "tall tales," a sign of the storyteller's creativity. Perhaps this is where my love of reading and writing comes from, because, in the end, aren't books just storytelling written down?
Joy for today: telling stories, true and otherwise.
