Let me tell you a story

of a day when across the globe

in tiny villages and on city streets

in cafes and clubs and schools and even

in living rooms, auditoriums and theaters

the stories are told,one by one,

voice by voice, language by language,

age by age, one to another,

funny and sad, thoughtful and dire,

courageous and hilarious,

myth, legend, folktale, historic and true.

Stories surround and sweep us forward

reminding us of who we were, where we came from,

where we are now, and light the way ahead.

On this day, join the journey: find a friend and tell a story.

    Beautiful. It is such a shame that the art of aural story-telling is almost lost.
