This weekend’s quote addresses stories and storytelling.
Stories are a communal currency of humanity. ~ Tahir Shah

I am flying to Singapore soon tomorrow and I am looking forward to meeting with Singapore’s premier storytelling coach, Angeline Koh. Look for my post on our conversation about storytelling and storylistening.
The Democracy of Storytelling
I believe in the democracy of storytelling. I love the fact that our stories can cross all sorts of borders and boundaries. I feel humbled by the notion that I’m even a small part of the literary experience. I grew up in a house, in a city, in a country shaped by books. I don’t know of a greater privilege than being allowed to tell a story, or to listen to a story. They’re the only thing we have that can trump life itself. ~Colum McCann
