You, like every human being, are a storyteller by birthright. You are born with an endless supply of personal and universal themes. It is important to open yourself to receive the vast wealth of imagery that lives within you. Build a hearth within you and let it become a circle of protection. In it your heart's wisdom may ignite and burn. Ask that all who gather at your fire from your own inner skies, lands, and waters come with goodwill to share their truths in its warmth.

Nancy Mellon in Storytelling & the Art of Imagination by Nancy Mellon


To Practice This Thought:
Close your eyes and see yourself telling a story. What is it about? Who is listening?
