On sharing stories

“There are many different worlds inside a city.  The world of the rich and the world of beggars.  The world of men and the world behind the veil.  The worlds of Muslims and of Christians and of Jews….
All the worlds touch at the bazaar.  And the other place where they touch is in stories…..

If we don’t share our stories—trading them across our borders as freely as spices and ebony and silk—we will all be strangers forever.”

--Susan Fletcher,
