Yesterday, at a storytelling event, I heard a very riveting story by a wonderful storyteller. I know it took great courage to stand up and share very personal autobiographical material with a group of people. Courageous on two fronts. First, courageous for creating it, making it a performance, an entity, and next courageous for perofrming it in front of us. For giving it life. At the same event, another friend told me of a harrowing experience she had while rock kimbing a few weeks back. When in the midst of it, she was asked to tell a story. They wanted to hear a story. This is her story and I won't share more of it without permission. but, it just reminds me how much I love storytelling and the whole wonderful storytelling community.
