Since time immemorial, it has been about the story! This is confirmed by the great writers and sages of our time and time past. From Homer to Annie Lenorard. I believe your dialogues are what needs to be started all over the planet. We need to bring in the stories of the lives that cannot speak for themselves also. The animals, the air, water; everything has a right to be heard, to tell its story and how it is part of the whole. I have heard that it's all connected! That is a theme that is very old also. Many people are now identifying how they are connected not just by blood but by location, desire, thought, awe and survival. Thanks for starting this although you know you are not the first! The pockets of storytellers are popping up all over the place. What is great about yours is that you are making it very easy for people to participate. I am grateful for that and hope that you continue to connect. Expand on your ability to be inclusive and create ways for the ones who cannot speak to be heard.
