CAN YOU TRUST STORY?
The answer is yes. Indeed, storytelling is still considered a leisure pastime and a soft activity and yet it essentially tells more truth about a time and/or circumstance then the more seriously considered word arrangements known as history texts, business texts and how-tos. Although I still find it difficult to read Shakespeare, I feel his works inform us of the times with greater accuracy when we ask, "Why did the audience crave, react, demand as they did of Shakespeare's work?"
This morning i was called the queen of story - and not for the first time... Let me tell you the story of the women of Women's College Hospital, the amazing work of Dr. Liz Tullis and the adult CF clinic, the founding Sisters of St. Joseph, the legacy of the University of Guelph, how internationally trained lawyers become lawyers in Canada, how social work at the University of Toronto [FIFSW] changes social work or about the wizard of Gore's Landing - all true. Do you know these stories? Ask me to share and while we are at it - tell me your story.
