Winter Evenings

Dark  winter evenings draw us inexorably inward, just as people used to gather to hear stories around a crackling fire. We may think times have changed but we still crave the warmth and comfort of the metaphorical hearth when the wind moans and snow piles up around the doorstep.  We still yearn for stories even though the vehicles that deliver them have changed dramatically.

Maybe you stumble across your daily dose of storytelling in the newspaper or the internet. Or do you settle down to watch your favorite TV show or rent a movie to pass these long winter nights? There is nothing like a good story, whether we want the indefinable lift that a happy ending brings, the thrill of an unexpected play by our favorite team, or the momentary terror of an urban legend! Whether you chose TV, or movies, a book, a Kindle, or a Nook you are continuing to satisfy an ancient need to define yourself and your life through storytelling.  Fortunately, some things never change!
