grandies and neighbors
gather around the table
to share a large pot
of ramen, laughs, and stories.
“honor the community you come from. tell their stories.”
when walking in a park near my daughter’s house
an illustrated storybook trail
with pages spread throughout the woods
placed there by the village and the local library
a perfect pairing.
peter bence retells toto’s story of africa in a new way
not confining himself to just the keyboard
of this half million dollar piano
well worth a listen.
“i’m an interpreter of stories.
when I perform it’s like sitting down at my piano and telling fairy stories.
-nat king cole
after walking up to this truck
i wondered about all the stories it could tell
where it’s been, who it carried, what happened
no one knows for sure
all that’s left is to imagine.
what a ride it must have been!
“i like stories that leave you wanting more,
leave you wondering, but don’t tell you everything.”
