I have the privilege of having two new grandchildren and have just spent some well rewarded time with them.
The time spent reinforces what this space has been saying all along, that our personal stories are really meant for the following generations. One grandchild loves stories. She doesn't like to be read stories, she likes to be told stories - you have to make them up. Some day, presumably, she will like "real" stories.
So it's for people like her that our "real" stories are told so that, among other things, they will have a legacy to fall back on.
And as we say here constantly, everyone has a story and everyone has an audience to hear it. Tell it for them.
