Story telling is a way to remain immortal.  We can put into words the tales of our lives, the experience of our days.  Material things are lost, stolen and cannot go with us.  Stories of experiences can never be taken.  And when we share them, a part of us lives on as well.

I had the great privilege to hear the life stories of some wonderful ladies and men in the Mount Joy writing group.  Their stories were moving and told of sadness, triumph and humor.  I am above honored to have been given access to their tales.  I am part of their immortality now and do not carry this lightly.

I hope that this group will consider sharing some of their favorites as a collection in a book from the group.  I am certain they would have many interested in reading them.

Thank you for letting me share your reading/writing time.
