There are other worlds out there, other places left unexplored by human beings. They exist within realms we may not even know about as of yet. And they exist in magical portals that we call ‘stories.’
These stories can help us learn, help us calm or excite our senses, and help us cope with all manner of things. Like right now, I am reading instead of allowing anxiety over a job prospect to overwhelm me. I write when I need to empty myself of ideas, inspirations, anxieties, mental images, emotions, or anything else that might arise and threaten to overwhelm. I write or I am cranky, I read or I am cranky. I need words, I am addicted to stories, they mold my life.
What do stories do for you?
