That's why over the weekend I went to Jonesboro, Tenn., along with some 13,000 other folks, to attend the 32nd annual National Storytelling Festival. I wanted somebody to tell me a story. And two-dozen or so featured tellers seemed only too happy to oblige.

The true magic of stories is that they tell us who we are, both the teller and the listener.
