AKA Every Post Tells a Story
I have been thinking about the power of story a lot recently. This is not necessarily new to me, but it does seem to be very prevalent in my thoughts these days. My focus on story began many, many years ago through conversations with dear friends and the gift of this book. Crow and Weasel weaves a story of friendship and growth and journey. It contains one of my now favorite quotes:
one thing,” said Badger.
“The stories people tell have a way of
taking care of them. If stories come to
you, care for them. And learn to give
them away where they are needed.
Sometimes a person needs a story more than food to stay alive. That is why we put these stories in each other’s memory.
This is how people care for themselves.
One day you will be good storytellers.
Never forget these obligations.”
Crow and Weasel
Alas, I would be remiss if I did not mention the story encapsulated in snippets and quips of abbreviated language and photos in the world of social connection known as Facebook, where we can stay tuned into the daily lives of our families and friends with instant updates. The conversations that occur remind me of the back-and-forth banter of, what is known now as 'face time', that took place years ago when life was closer and slower.

If you have read this far, thank you. If you are wondering what was the point to this story... and you feel confused... me too! I guess it is my way of throwing a lasso around so many ideas, sources, and interesting folks and placing them in a corral so they can be easily found in the future. Don't you wonder what people like about the sites they post in their 'blogroll'? I do. I wonder about the story. Now if I ever get to creating my list of frequented blogs here at pomegranate trail, you will know the background story! This is my way of sharing with my friends, family and online community. It is written pondering. Questions, comments and conversation welcomed!
share with others
and come back to see me soon!
