I believe in the power of story.
I love once-upon-a-times and remember-whens and me-toos and what-ifs.
I believe that writing down, speaking up, typing out all give life and color and meaning to ideas that need to be shared.
I love when a turn of phrase or a perfect analogy lodge in my head for days.
I believe that stories give us connections – to our past, to our future, to folks we’ve never met halfway around the globe or the guy on the corner or the lady down the street.
I love pressing a book into someone’s hand with an urgent “you have to read this” and I love retelling my favorite memories with my favorite people for the hundred-millionth repetition, with no urgency at all.
I believe that my heart contains sparks of story that are begging to be told, shared, repeated & remembered.
I love storytelling.
