Jonathan Gottschal suggests that “story is the grease and glue of society” (in The Storytelling Animal). He says stories unite people – pulling them together to connect through common values and ideas. What’s your part in that?
If you don’t share your ideas, no one will know if they’re any good.

The Friday good news post is aimed at sharing positive stories with you as you go into your weekend. To get variety and diversity in this, I need stories from different sources. One of those would be you. Do you have good news to share?
Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.
What is the point of having experience, knowledge or talent if I don’t give it away?
Or having stories if I don’t tell them to others?
Or having wealth if I don’t share it?
I don;t intend to be cremated with any of it!
It is in giving that I connect with others, with the world and with the divine.
