Compass of the Wanderer

I love learning about everything. Most especially I love learning about different people and their unique life story. I am a storyteller at heart, and I see a story in everything. The wind and rain tell a tale that you can only hear if you listen closely, song conveys the story of the heart better than any pen, each of us have a story to tell, and each is worth the hearing.

My cousin Helen, who is in her 90s now, was in the Warsaw ghetto during World War II. She and a bunch of the girls in the ghetto had to do sewing each day. And if you were found with a book, it was an automatic death penalty. She had gotten hold of a copy of ‘Gone With the Wind’, and she would take three or four hours out of her sleeping time each night to read. And then, during the hour or so when they were sewing the next day, she would tell them all the story. These girls were risking certain death for a story. And when she told me that story herself, it actually made what I do feel more important. Because giving people stories is not a luxury. It’s actually one of the things that you live and die for.
