Recently, I had the opportunity to read one of my favorite stories to a writers group I participate in here in Virginia. It was something I really enjoyed, but I honestly enjoyed even more listening to the other writers read their work. If I wasn’t the youngest in the room, I was close to it.
What is our most valuable resource?
In my opinion, it is the wisdom of those who are further down life’s path than we are. There is nothing I love more than hearing folks older than I, tell their stories and opinions.
A number of the stories were serious and even more were humorous. It was the year end contest with the group voting for the stories they thought were the best and one being chosen for the coveted humor award that bears the name of a past member, who evidently knew how to spin a yarn.
