Storytelling is how our ancestors communicated with each other and committed important history and knowledge to memory, preserving valuable information and passing it down generation to generation. While today we have books, computers and other sources of information at our fingertips, storytelling is still valuable and soothing to the soul. Read the story in this month’s issue and see if you can retell it to a friend or family member. It’s a great tradition to start! Try committing to one Friday night per month to sit around and re-tell the herbal story. Feel free to embellish it and add on to it to make it your own story!
