For three days last week, I had the blissful privilege of listening to a varied group of strangers unearth a single story that they were carrying around –and learn to dig out my own– at a workshop led by the Center For Digital Storytelling.
I’ve been pretty pensive all weekend about the tangible effects of knowing other people’s stories; I have a hunch it could be revolutionary to this world, dramatic as that sounds. The other students and facilitators in the group at that ramshackle farmhouse in Lyons were all bursting with incredible stories that I would have never ever guessed they held. I would like to be permanently affected by this way of seeing the world.
