Something to Think About

Older, retired folks have a tendency to tell stories of their youth, successes from work, and adventures they took. They tell the same story as often as one listens to it. I’ve found their stories enlightening and entertaining. They are the stuff of life. They are one person’s narrative that their life was meaningful. If you have an opportunity to listen to an elder’s stories, take advantage of it. Listening connects us to the story teller, and the story teller’s story connects us to the story teller’s journey.
