Today is Tell A Story Day.
The thing about telling stories is that they establish reality. Two people can tell the story of an event they witnessed and come up with completely different stories with completely different meanings because of their views of reality. (America is in the throes of this phenomenon right now; thank god for a free press.).
But telling stories is just good for us. It gives us a chance to take the unrelenting chaos of real life and order it into a form and shape that is understandable and bearable.
Telling stories is what keeps us sane. And also . . .
So tell us a story in the comments.
