If there’s one common denominator among all those who love StoryPeople, it’s this; we remember the first time we discovered them. For me, it was July 2004. I was emerging from one of those awesome dark moments in life and was slowly regaining balance and finding my place again. So I took a trip to California to visit a friend and take a breather. While there, we went to a gallery and came across a story that forever changed my life. It goes like this…
I’ve always liked the time before dawn because there’s no one around to remind me who I’m supposed to be, so it’s easier to remember who I am.
I cannot tell you what I felt at that moment. But it’s what I needed to hear and I wrote it down and kept it in my wallet for years. StoryPeople has that affect on you. Once you read one, your soul smiles, your heart swells, and you find peace in their words. I could spend hours browsing, laughing, crying, and thinking about all their stories, but I usually have to get up and use the bathroom or eat something, so my time is limited. Regardless, it’s hard to pull yourself away.
StoryPeople’s stories are rich, full of love, and capture the human spirit. You can find comfort in almost all of them. They have the superpower to identify with humanity and connect us all. You’ll see yourself or someone you know when you read StoryPeople. To arouse your curiosity, here are some good ones:
