As the new year dawned, I was reminded once again of the clean slate, the blank page, and the importance of stories.
Stories help us decide where to live, what schools our children attend, what meals to make, what restaurants to try, what books to read, what countries to visit, what jobs to take, where to change our tires, cut our hair or exercise our body.
We learn through stories. We communicate with stories. We are inspired by stories.
The poet Muriel Rukeyser once said, “The universe is made of stories, not of atoms.”
