Today’s Blogging101 assignment: Try a post in a different format. I thought I’d let this picture do the talking – I’ve always loved the fact that photos tell stories so vividly. I took this photo in Ekaterinburg, Russia last year.
“After nourishment, shelter and companionship, stories are the thing we need most in the world.” – Philip Pullman
I have always been drawn to stories. I seek shelter in stories and draw nourishment and companionship from them.
For the past few years, though, I’ve found myself inhabiting a much different world – not of stories but facts and figures. Increasingly I feel that, in the story of my life, I’ve somewhat lost the plot.
This blog is a small step toward regaining that plot and reviving an interest that has gone neglected for too long. It’s about things that inspire, motivate and intrigue me – the stories behind everyday things. My hope is that you will follow along because the everyday things presented here inspire, motivate and intrigue you, too.
Everything and everybody has a story. I want to learn and tell as many of them as possible.
