L & C wishes not just the storytellers but also the readers and other story lovers, the people who makes a storyteller special, a very happy World Storytelling Day.
“Stories have to be told or they die, and when they die, we can’t remember who we are or why we’re here.”
― Sue Monk Kidd
There are two worlds known to me. One that’s real; that I see with my naked eyes; that’s responsible for my and others’ being. But there’s another one that’s not visible to eyes; that takes shape in one’s imagination and vanishes with fading memories.
It’s subtle, sublime, and spellbinding like that of the first sunray kissing the surface. It’s a figment of some creative minds that, since ages, are fabricating this fascinating world with words woven employing imagination and intuition. Author, writer, wordsmith or storyteller – we know them by many names.
The storytelling and storytellers have lived the planet since the origin of life. Initially stories were kept alive by being told again and again across the generations. It’s only after the discovery of script that stories could be transcribed and preserved for the coming generations to read. It gave birth to literature which exists in many different forms with storytelling being the soul of it.
Today, on 20 March 2014, all literature and story lovers across the world are celebrating World Storytelling Day which is celebrated every year on the spring equinox in the northern hemisphere, the first day of autumn equinox in the southern. It’s a festival of all those who love stories – reading, writing or listening, it doesn’t matter.
L & C wishes not just the storytellers but also the readers and other story lovers, the people who makes a storyteller special, a very happy World Storytelling Day. Stories will continue to take shape around us, storytellers will continue to fascinate the readers with their stories and the fascinating world of stories will continue to grow richer and richer.
