Sunday Reflection: Storytelling #sundaythoughts

One could say life is a story. Everything we do in life is recalled from memory to be told later on. Whether it comes from a book, music, movie, or in a campfire there is a tale worth telling.

Some of the great story tellers such as Shakespeare, Austen, Lewis, Twain, Haley, Swift, Paisley, Cash, Spielberg, Howard and Young and many more have captured our imagination and challenged us to think differently. We have learned much from their art and vision.

Family stories can be the most colorful and something that ties the past with the present and the future.

In scripture, the feeding of the five thousand is one where there are lots of characters to choose from. Jesus was doing some cool things to bring community together and performing a miracle in the process. Talking about a big fish story.

Blogging and social media are telling our stories in real time. We get to share our experiences in this life with one another as it happens. As a long-time blogger its quite fun to see how other people live and where they are coming from. Its like travelling without having to leave your home.

Movies are a way to share a story in a communal way where people can see different things from the same source. Videos from YouTube are an important part of giving voice to people and to offer instructions on how to navigate life.

Stories are important. We all have one. Let’s be sure to insure the transmission of our lives and culture into tomorrow. There is much to be learned from it all. Tell us the story good people.

It’s That Time Of Year Again, Back To School Supply Shopping

Walmart has their school supplies out for sale now. Whether it be grade or high school or maybe college now is the time to pick up those supplies. It will be a weird year I feel for students around the world. Let’s see if the return to the classroom really happens.

The Glass Is Refillable, Wow It Is!

This old saying about a glass being half full or half empty is completely rethought here. A glass can be refilled. So that is something I am working on for myself. I have a glass that is in need of refreshment. Sometimes the third option is best.

Quote Of The Day

Diversity contains as many treasures as those waiting for us on other worlds. We will find it impossible to fear diversity and to enter the future at the same time.

The Thing About My Blog And Social Justice

This blog has a heavy social justice element to it. As a person who feels deeply and cares about what’s going on around the world I want to post about it show support and awareness. Be warned I come from a center-left perspective and if what I post is too much then you have my blessing to unfollow. No hard feelings. Right now the world is in need of advocates for people who want to have rights and resources to make their lives better and I am answering that call. Some posts will have comments turned off because I don’t want any conflict between people. Thanks for your understanding and interest in what I have to say.
