A story about storytelling

It’s all about cheese, but really it’s all about the stories we tell each other and ourselves. Satisfying and rich, like the cheese itself.

“I like coincidences. Seems like when you have a coincidence it is a clue to how the world all fits together, even though things may look to be wide apart.”

“Every kid need to shine, she said: needs a place to shine, or a way to shine, or a person to shine for. Nothing big, just something that means something to the kid.”
