"“Stories tell us of what we already knew and forgot,

and remind us of what we haven’t yet imagined.”

—Anne Watson

Best thoughts, Marilyn.



Storytelling captures an aspect of childhood experience when being told a story was a common ritual.

It's a warm place for most of us and in some ways represents our first experience in really listening.

- Paul Lansky


Life itself is the most wonderful fairytale of all.  
-Hans Christian Andersen
