A Good Story

Yesterday I had the pleasure of watching two theatre events at the Shaw Festival in Niagara-on-the-lake with my daughter, Getting Married and Brigadoon. Both shows were excellent and both about marriage.
Brene Brown wrote an article about what unites people and she said it’s not Armies, gold or flags but stories that unites people. There’s nothing in the world more powerful than a good story. Nothing can stop it, no enemy can defeat it. I agree. In both theatres at half time, the air was abuzz with chatter, with the union of enjoyable conversation and happy chatter. It was electric!
What each story had in common was a realm of emotions such as humorous celebrations and laughter, fear, sadness, hope and anticipation. And, the acting was superb! Both were sold out venues! I believe it is a true gift to be able to write or share a good story. It has been so from the beginning of time and will continue to do so forever!
