"There are times when people need stories more than they need nourishment, because the stories feed something deeper than the needs of the body."Charles de Lindt
All ancient cultures had strong storytelling traditions. Storytellers and musicians are entertainers, but their role in most cultures has been to tell stories and sing songs to help their people understand the whys and wherefores of human life, as well as the life of the natural world around them. Storytellers and musicians are meant to lead the way, to see what was, what is and what can be possible and then report back to the rest of us.
