My friend’s blog Breaking The Eggs is all about storytelling. In this recent blog he talks about our origins of storytellers in comparison to origin stories of popular comic characters. I wrote the following:

I so easily recall being in 3rd grade and finding D’aulaire’s Book of Greek Myths. I memorized most of them with in months. Then I would recount and re-tell to any and everyone who’d listen. I just kind of never stopped. Of course new stories have been added. Other myths. Personal stories. Mono’s on everything. BUT I still tell the Greeks. I just did Achilles and re-wrote Persephone. I think I still recall the memory so easily because, albeit at a young age and not understanding what had happened, I had been defined. It was kind of awesome.
