A Fire In The Story Cave

Quotes and Notes #270, August 1

Once Man had fire to chase the demons out of the cave it was time to Party.

Once Man had fire to chase the demons out of the cave it was time to Party.

When Man had found that fire would chase the demons from the caves, he had a warm, safe place to sit around that fire and –Tell Stories. My friend Nelson sent me a story about a story yesterday. I think it is an appropriate follow up to yesterdays Q&N—John—

Nelson wrote: “Your quote today reminded us of a visit to Marrakech Morocco. Each morning in the public square all kinds of people were to be found, including snake charmers and other weird and curious acts.
One such item was the “never ending story”. An elderly man would come every day at the same time and draw a crowd of listeners of all ages to hear about thirty minutes of the story. The story supposedly had been going on for generations and was expected to continue to do so. The story teller evidently made up the next day’s continuing saga each day, and this system had been passed down through time. This was in the nineteen eighties, and I would like to go back and see if it is still occurring.
We love your quotes, keep them coming.”
Nelson & Yolanda Magee

I love it, Nelson. Thank you for your contribution
I will share this story with a smile
Everything is going to be all right.
John P. Schulz—“Sweetie Drives on Chemo Days.”
