It is beautiful to hear stories because it transports us to childhood, to other realities. Because it brings us closer to the forgotten, buried, snatched truth.
But we grew up and then we thought that amazement and fascination should be sacrificed in the process of becoming men and women. We were told that fantasy and fiction were a child’s thing. Look at those people so mature and serious, they look so unhappy…!
How beautiful it is to tell stories! And not because this world is a horrible place, it is not! It is to make this world a more fascinating and incredible place.
