Thoughts on Storytelling

My contribution to The Writer’s Vineyard this month is inspired by a day at a storytelling workshop. The day ended with an open story swap for all participants – thank you, Bob, for this sweet, funny Zen tale, that is included in my TWV post :

Once there was a little girl at school. The teacher said it was time for art; time to make a picture. The little girl asked, what should we draw? And the teacher answered, anything you like.

The little girl drew with such furious concentration that the teacher finally had to ask. What are you drawing?

I am drawing a picture of God, the little girl answered.

But you realize no one truly knows what God looks like, the teacher could not help but blurt. 

They will in a few minutes, the little girl said.
