Storied Children: Relevant Inspiration

One of my very favorite movies is "Out of Africa." In fact, when I need a boost of creative flow, I pop in the soundtrack, and my brain synapses do little happy dances. Storytelling is a central theme, when nights were long, and entertainment was found in the good conversation of an infrequent visitor, and the special treat of a gifted storyteller. A recent story of a mother raising her family today in Zimbabwe where books are hard to come by, was a beautiful reminder of the simple beauty of the special gift of imagination that a mother can give to her children.
