"Storytelling reveals meaning without committing the error of defining it."
~ Hannah Arendt ~
In my own stories, I am always looking for the lesson. What did I learn? What can I take away? What is the point of what has happened?
And yet, the stories I most enjoy listening to are not the ones designed to teach me at all, but the ones that spin a yarn and create an experience that I can relate to and laugh about.
Life is not always about the lesson. Sometimes it's just about sharing the ride.
