Over the centuries, storytelling has been a vital source for connection of community throughout the world. Often the elders would pass on a pivotal event or interesting tale to the new generation. Then, their memory could carry on the legacy or even the legends of the tribe or family. This form of communication is a type of glue that holds the family together when times are tough because “I belong” is stronger than fear. This act of telling inevitably knits the listener to the storyteller as they laugh or cry as the story is told. While we read books or even watch movies in a fantasy world of our own, this form of retelling is becoming a lost art form. So, next time you see the moon rising, take a little time and recall an event from your childhood or your parent’s life and pass it on to your children so they feel like they belong to something more. Make your past interesting, embellish it a bit, and recapture the great moments and the legacy of telling “Bedtime Stories.”
