Blog Guelph: Storytelling

The most accomplished stories for me are the ones that are difficult to tell, tricky to read. Uncompromising.

“Write the story that you were always afraid to tell. I swear to you that there is magic in it, and if you show yourself naked for me, I'll be naked for you. It will be our covenant” says Dorothy Allison.

I've been following the very real life storytelling of our friend Sue Richards on Facebook of late. Reading with heartbreak and laughter. 
Compassion and love.
I'm rapt.

This is Sue's Blog - her baby. She gives the rest of us an opportunity to post our own tales - versions of our truths as we see and feel them.

I want to thank Sue for that, and for so much else. For baring her soul. And for reaching out. 

She's one of the bravest people I've ever met.
