Why Do We Tell Stories?

Sometimes what wants to come out wants to be are four pages. If you click on the image it will enlarge and should be legible. Please tell me if it is not. When you finish a page, you can use your browser's back button to return to the post and then click on the next page.

this is a wonderful way of melding together the authenticity of the handwritten word, biologically connected to the heart & mind that conceived them, and the opportunity of reading them and sharing them and joining an author in the exploration of feeling and idea by means of what Kevin Kelly calls the 'technium', which in this case is the blogosphere made possible by the internet.
You have connected them/us with Esther and Nejma and the even larger reality of Story, handled with care.

You are not a dinosaur for preferring language to image. That is a preference that comes from the Creator, Who gave human's language. And especially for our children's sake, we need to immerse their minds with language or it will be hard for them to overcome the disability of their brains being wired for images. Ellul's *The Humiliation of the Word* is instructive on this topic, as are more recent studies. Thank you for this provocative meditation.

Did I really put that apostrophe in humans? I am showing my vanity here, by writing a whole comment just to say that I know it doesn't belong. That's a fallen human that also includes something it shouldn't.

As the Queen of Typos and at least a princess of "thinkos," I didn't stumble over your unnecessary apostrophe. I so appreciate that I can return to my posts and edit them after dear ones point out things to me to which I was blind to at the time I pushed the publish button, but I haven't figured out a way to edit my or others comments. So I've publish your comment, but here is my take on it: It is not vain to want to be a good rather than a bad influence on others, even in so small an arena as spelling, grammar or punctuation.
