    Did I ever introduce myself....I don't remember...
    Well, my name is Story...
    I am you...I am he...I am she...
    I am a voice...
    When you look in the mirror...it's me that you see
    I guess you could say...
    That I have multiple personalities...because...
    I am one...but I am many...does that make me schizophrenic?

    My feet hurt...from walking in all the shoes of my characters....
    I am everyone because...I write from all perspectives...like they are from me....

    Black...white...asian...hispanic...young...old...male...female...hetero...homo...single mother...single father...preacher's wife...preacher's daughter....homeless...rich...middle class...prep school product...remedee-al skool produckt...spic...nucka!

    I am a voice...I am forever pregnant...and all I do, is give birth to stories...that carry the voice of humanity...I am a story...that never ends...

    I feel your pain...
    I feel your joy...
    I am your tears...
    I am your smile...
    I am

    ~Story
    I invite you into me...although...I am already inside of you...:heart:

    nice read

    Jesus told many stories according to the scripture

    i'm sure you may deliver many from the pits/pitfalls
    through your message hidden in the underlying
    meaning of your stories :)

    may he be kind to you

    different stories different plots but at the end of the day...they all just you! You are that story, you are that story that is told and everybody can relate to...tell that story...tell of the pains, the joys and the tears embedded in each of us...we are each other's stories..

    enjoyed the read!!! :spinstar: :spinstar:

    baller....stand still....

    imagine...me stepping into to you and the fluid of love stepping into us...

    imagine the flow you and I would cause....tsunami....

    imagine the onlookers...crowding to sneak a peak and the shower of love...that would take place...

    i'll tell you stories with the shine in my eyes and wait patiently to hear your response from the strength of your touch....the only touch...the beat of your heart against mine...in sync....as we have become since I stepped inside of you...
