Stories

Story telling has been shared in every culture as a means of entertainment, education, cultural preservation, and instilling moral values.

Brene Brown says “Maybe stories are just data with a soul.” So what is your story? You must remember you have the ability to write the ending of your story any way you want it to end.

I pray that this form of art never fades away like so many other past traditions. So my advice to you is to tell your story. Write it, paint it, draw it, dance it, use the oral tradition. Whatever means that tickles you fancy – TELL YOUR STORY.

  • Storytelling has almost become a lost art. I love the ancient Irish/Gaelic system of teaching history, the Brehon Laws, etc through seanchai who traveled around to the many small villages for a month teaching and then moving on to the next village. “The word seanchaí, which was spelled seanchaidhe (plural seanchaidhthe) before the Irish-language spelling reform of 1948, means a bearer of “old lore” (seanchas). In the ancient Celtic culture, the history and laws of the people were not written down but memorized in long lyric poems which were recited by bards (filí), in a tradition echoed by the seanchaithe.” (per Wikipedia)

  • This was very interesting. Did you ever watch the series the OUTLANDER or read the books? Jamie Frazier called his wife Sassenach. I could not put the first book down. Superb story telling.
