10.1 {Whatever Wednesday} The power of Story

Whatever Wednesday — a chance to post something I’ve seen that I’m diggin’: a cool quote or poster, a video, or simply a picture.

Enjoy!… and consider posting your own Whatever.


In class we are reading stories and will soon be writing our own stories from our lives. This quote captures why we do it—”we” not just being students, but humans. Storytelling is a human thing and has been around since drawing on cave walls.

I heard somewhere that stories are like windows and mirrors. Some, like a window, give us a view of other people’s lives and help us to understand a different situation or experience. Other stories reflect back at us and help us to see our own lives more clearly; they give us insight.

I’m looking forward to continuing our sharing of story— from A Long Walk To Water to Good Enough to On The Bridge.

Here’s to windows and mirrors.
