Pull up a comfy chair and settle in for some sharing. Stories written from the heart speak to our hearts and touch us at deep levels. I think Jan has said it best:
“ … our stories contain the answers to each other’s questions. What I cannot find in searching through the riches and rubble of my own life may become apparent to me in the witnessing of yours.
“In the passing on of our stories, we gift each other with the power of possibility. When I watch you claim your life and go after your dream, I begin to believe I can do it, too. When I see what you risk to achieve what you want, I think that I, too, could take that chance. When I hear what you have suffered while I see you trudging forward, I believe I can make it to the other side of my own darkness. What can save us if it is not our stories, not the careful sharing of who we are and what we dream for a world whose future rests in our hands?”
— Jan, from ‘A Waist is a Terrible Thing to Mind’
