I think this sums it all up

We were out looking at model houses today,  and I noticed this quote by Sartre on the pillows on the couch:

Pour que l’événement le plus banal devienne une aventure, il faut et il suffit qu’on se mette à le raconter.

(The man showing us the house asked, “You can read that?”  Yes, I can read that.)

My life isn’t really as much of an adventure right now as people think — I just try to find a story to tell every day. I need to start carrying my camera around with me again — I’ve missed some great pictures lately, including one that would be perfect for Shel Silverstein’s “Where the Sidewalk Ends”.

When I was in 8th grade, we all had to participate in an exercise where we wrote something nice about each one of our classmates.  Pretty much all of my class said that they liked the way I told stories.  I guess the storytelling bug has stuck with me. 🙂
