LYN FORD, STORYTELLER - TELLER OF HOME-FRIED TALES
"Once upon a time, 'bout time and a half ago..."
how does your story begin???

     Communication is storytelling at its universal level.  We all have stories to share, some true, some almost true, some purely fiction (about which my Pop-pops said, "If it ain't true, it should be").  Every story has truth in it; what is "real" is up to the discretion of the listener. That shouldn't stop you from sharing your truths.

In this year, make a point of sharing your stories.  Nobody else can tell them for you, unless you share them first!
