Wise words from, Ngethe, a member of the OutTales around the Fire community on Facebook.
Its a very traditional thing, no I think, a very human thing to tell stories round the fire. In as many years as I have been reading books/novels I have found that there has been a culture of telling tales by the fire in most places worldwide. Something about heath [heat] and home, fire and the flickering hypnotic shadows cast by the fire as men and women bear their souls, entertain, engage and endear themselves to their community, its not yet June, so will save the ‘first time’ tales for tomorrow and the rest of the month, today I simply acknowledge Ade and Richard for a great start to a new community, a new space where men and women from around the world can once more sit around the ‘fire’ and engage, endear and bear their souls as we commune from wherever we are.
