Stories take us out of ourselves and into new worlds in which we can get lost.
Forgetting ourselves we can just follow along watching and listening as events unfold.
The story may lead us to a point where suddenly we recognize something, an aspect of ourselves.
A connection is made. An 'a-hah' moment sparked — and from that moment on we may be forever changed.
Our original perspective may shift in this new unanticipated light. We may recognize ourselves in another person's experience. We may find ourselves not quite as alone as we might have imagined.
In sharing and listening, there's always an opportunity for healing.
