The image of the storyteller with the skirt of many colors is so vivid--I can imagine you as that storyteller, Sandra--sitting and telling both personal stories and folktales to rapt audiences.


I love this reflection. I have also been thinking about how storytelling is a tool to help us process our own life experiences and their meaning. I especially appreciate when you write "It has brought meaning to my sorrows." By forcing us to consider our bad experiences in the greater context of our lives, I think storytelling helps us find positive outcomes, or at least a deeper understanding.
