Dorothy Geary

Well, we lived on a farm and we had lots of fun. Tried to ride the horses and the cows when daddy wasn’t watching us.

Ms. Geary:  Well, we lived on a farm and we had lots of fun.  Tried to ride the horses and the cows when daddy wasn’t watching us.
Friend:  Yeh, I’ve rode a few cows.  We didn’t have any horses.  We had a mule, and it’s hard to ride a mule.
Ms. Geary:  It sure is.
Friend: They’re not a good thing to ride.
Ms. Geary:  If you don’t believe it, try riding one!

The Power to Transform

Stories have power. They delight, enchant, touch, teach, recall, inspire, motivate, and challenge. They help us understand. They imprint a picture on our minds. Our storytelling ability, a uniquely human trait, has been with us as long as we’ve been able to speak and listen. Not only do people love to tell stories, people love to hear stories!

That’s why we’ve partnered with Carrie Gallahan, founder of Saving Libraries. Carrie was inspired by this African proverb to start a movement to save the stories of our elders.
