The Importance of Story in Everyday Life

The Importance of Story in Everyday Life | smokyzeidelbooks.

“Long before the dawn of the written word, people told stories. Indigenous people from around the world have rich storytelling histories. Go to Amazon and plug “Folk Tales from Around the World” into their search box and you’ll immediately find books of tales from Ireland, Africa, China, and the Amazon, not to mention anthologies filled with tales from different lands. And that’s just on the front page; in fact, Amazon reports there are 623 books that fit that description.”

We live out our stories, I think. I enjoyed reading Smoky’s post to see what others think. Why do we read? Why do we tell stories?  Some nice ideas here.
