I love museums and the global concepts that they preserve and tell our stories. When coupled with oral storytelling, history comes alive and is once again exciting. Wonderful article.

Our society today is one of instant gratification. We are spoiled. This virus is teaching us to not only be patient with everything we took for granted, but with ourselves. I always enjoy your stories and this one is a keeper for teaching patience. Thanks Mario.

Welcome back "Slack." I certainly relate to using this time to explore the home. I never knew I had so much to do. :-) I to remember when time was too precious to waste because there just wasn't enough to do all that needed to be done. Everything had to be scheduled. What a difference a virus makes. Great article. Enjoyed reading.

Great and timely story. You know the Greek word panemons means 'pertaining to all people.' It's a real eye opener, this pandemic. While it causes mayhem the world over, it also makes us unit in our efforts to fight it.

A wonderful account of what we are going through right now and what lies ahead when the world survives this Corona flu. It all feels like a science fiction story from the X-files. And Agent Moulder hasn't quite discovered the "TRUTH" but it's out there. Well written.!

You are absolutely rightI It is sad that in general it takes a lifetime to realize that the secret to life is to be happy with what you have and where you are.

Written like a seasoned storyteller. I love your find of the "right attitude and mental action" cam make good of something awful. Even brussel sprouts when prepared like a well crafted story can be wonderful. (Smile)

What a revelation to be guided to the solution to your life's goal by sharing your story. And to know that you are helping others to heal at the same time has to be so gratifying. Thank you for sharing your story. Brava.

Indeed, it "is"in listening that we adsorb and process what is being said. What a blessing to realize the importance so early. A very important lesson to share in your blog as well as the article by Andrew Forsthoefel. As a storyteller, one must capture the audience's attention i.e. get them to listen from beginning to end.

Hmmm. I think everything has a story. Your imaginary"long time ago" story is happening now. It's stories of love hate, fear, laughter, jealousy, betrayal, optimism,, cheating, lying, the weather and just about everything. The same old stuff that happens century after century. They are stories in the making as you say that "bind and connect us." They make us feel good, they make us think critically; they teach and record history. The question is will they be "Fake" stories or Folk stories.

We have come a ways from spending to passing time. One thing for sure doing it with storytelling makes either way fun and enjoyable. Today, whether we are in business to sell or consoling someone; entertaining or teaching a moral and or lesson, we realize there is so much more to gain by doing it with storytelling.

I never thought about paralleling stories with dates but I do agree they must me told and yes, one must keep them close. One must always siege the opportunity to tell it whenever and wherever one can. Timing can be everything when telling or sharing a story. It will most likely be retold. And this, my storyteller friend, surely helps to keep stories alive.

I hear your A"Pack Rat." Every time I Spring clean i.e. reorganized my stacks of" stuff," happily I recall and tell stories connected to that "stuff," from times gone by but vividly remembered and shared and made new again. Then I carefully put in a "to keep pile and do it again every spring cleaning season.

Storytelling as a structured package is a wonderful way of saying crafting! I couldn't agree with you more. Whether we plan to or not every time we tell a story it "is" different. It will "always" be a different variable: the audience, what you remember to say or how you say it; and your tone. Your are absolutely right it will never be told the same way.

For the first time I watched from beginning to end. I love every actor who paid tribute to women finally being recognized for what they have always been capable of accomplishing and being a mother at the same time. Now that is real multi-tasking. There were more tributes and awards for women than I have ever recalled. It's about time.
