Story can be the clothing that makes the mystery visible. Story kept us alive when food failed, when water dried up, when the body itself began to fail.

    It is a lovely quote. And it reminds me how the same titles periodically resurface; this one is shared by a Louise Penney novel and an M.J. Hyland novel. Someday I’d love to make a deliberate project how of reading twins/triplets of those. :)

    I love this quote. I wish I could get my students to understand the power of story like this!

Thank you for commenting! For a long while, my health precluded me replying to everyone. Yet I missed the conversation, so I'm now making an effort to reply again. It might take a few days though, and there will be times when I simply can't. Regardless, I always read and value what you say.
