Tell It To Me Tuesdays - EVENT

Hosted each week by Jade at Tasting Grace

Jade at Tasting Grace is hosting a weekly event on Tuesdays called Tell It To me Tuesdays. She writes:

One of the effects of becoming a blogger and of reading books from a deliberate perspective is that I am beginning to really believe in the power of the personal narrative. As humans we once carried knowledge, traditions, sense of family and honor through oral history. We told each other stories, and I think stories have the ability to convey really deep truths. Of course, we like hard data: facts, figures, statistics…and they help us understand reality and get a handle on complexity. At least in a certain way. But that is only one way to get at truth. I think there is real power in the human voice, as flawed as it may be. And when the voices speak together, when you have a multitude of voices speaking, patterns begin to emerge and there you can begin to understand truth.
So in the spirit of the personal narrative, I want to try hosting a weekly challenge every Tuesday morning, where I will post a topic (ranging from the banal to the intimate) and ask readers to respond. I would love to see everyone’s answers and how similar and different they all are.
The Rules:
You can respond in any way you choose. You can give a fictional response or a true one. You can use words, sentences, and/or photographs. If you have a blog, you can link it with Mr. Linky (found on the weekly posts).
