On Saturday, I took this photo:
Every picture tells a story. Does that tell a story to you?
I often tell the story that we are all storytellers, as we communicate and shape our life experiences.
During this Patriots’ Day weekend, I told stories here on WordPress and elsewhere. I also heard stories told of and by other people, including:
- my friend Megan, who recently had her second child,
- my friend Deb,
- my two long-time and trusted cardiologists,
- WordPress bloggers,
- Wes Anderson,
- Mel Brooks,
- Kumiko the Treasure Hunter,
- Robert Durst,
- Kristen Lindsey, and
- many others.
As usual, the storytelling included attempts to make meaning out of very different aspects and behaviors of human beings.
I shall now continue the story of this post by asking this question:
What kind of storyteller are you?
If I tell a story by asking others a question, it’s only fair that I answer that question, too. So, what kind of storyteller am I?
Well, I strive to be a storyteller who is:
- helpful in some way, and
- always learning.
I just asked my boyfriend Michael, “What kind of storyteller are you?” and he said
Beats me, baby
so I’ll tell this very particular story about what kind of storyteller Michael is:
A delicious one.
Here’s some Storytellers music:
I’ll end today’s story by showing you somebody who somehow reminds me of the luck-dragon in The Neverending Story:
That’s my story (and our cat Harley).
Storied thanks to all good people and creatures who helped me tell my story today and special thanks to you — of course! — for reading it.
