It's all stories. Everything. The evening news? Stories. What you did over the weekend? Stories. What you watch on television? Stories. Everything you learned in school (with the exception of mathematics)? Stories.
It's always been stories. We build our lives around stories. We determine our heroes and villains by the stories we hear about them. We make all manner of life decisions based on stories. We buy this car or that camera or this other bicycle because others say it's fast or safe or reasonably priced. We go to that school, we visit that place, we try that restaurant, we take that route – all because of stories we've heard or stories we hope to tell later.
It's always going to be stories. Always. It's how we learn and it's how we teach. It's who we are as a species. It's all stories.
