AS SEEN ON

I am sitting in the library surrounded by books and the enormity of what each of these books represents hits me.

In those books, under the covers, through the countless pages, are the retelling of experiences and moments that have shaped someones life. Each of those books represents someones courage to own that moment. Their willingness to share it with others so that their experience may inspire someone they may never meet.

A wave of appreciation washes over me. So many brave souls right here in this space.

And yet… I can’t help but feel a small tinge of sadness. For everyone one of these stories told… how many are untold? How many stories were left unsaid, never spoken? How many stories have been lost?

Was it because the storyteller wasn’t a writer? Was it because their story didn’t flow from their heart to their hands so the moments that shaped their life, although could have changed the world, never made it to physical form?

Was it because the technology at the time didn’t allow them to record their stories in the way in which they did flow, from heart to mouth?

And how many more stories were lost simply because the person didn’t have the courage to share?
