“Storytellers, by the very act of telling, communicate a radical learning that changes lives and the world; telling stories is a universally accessible means through which people make meaning.”– Chris Cavanaugh

Communication…imparting or exchanging of information or news, sharing of ideas and feelings, social contact. I guess that about sums it up. Back in the day it was scratching symbols on a cave wall, smoke signals,letter writing, pony express, carrier pigeon, morse code, telephone operators, cell phone, text messages, skype, to name a few forms of communicating. Technology is wonderful and has made this big ol world seem much smaller but we must not forget the good old fashion face to face conversation too.

My parents have both died so I feel a need to tell the stories to keep them alive for the next generation to share with their kids and grandkids and great grandkids. Our family legacy. We all have volumes of rich memories.

There are many ways to share our stories..written word, verbal recordings, video and photos. My photos through the years are my journal for my kids. Like many of us our parents may not have had the time to take photos back in the day ( with 7 kids picture taking was few and far between)…so the few photos I have as a child are precious to me. Every picture tells a story and when I look at them I remember it like it was yesterday.

This weekend take some time to recall some good stories and share them with someone. We all have a GREAT story to tell. The world needs to hear YOURS. Have a great weekend. Peace out for now.
