Master Storyteller

Last night, I enjoyed a wonderful storytelling experience, led by a master storyteller.   Okay, it was actually a concert by performing legend Willie Nelson.  But it felt like a great story.  There was a beginning, middle, and end.  There were surprises and supporting characters.  There were highs and lows.  Each song, though comfortable and familiar like an old pair of jeans, took on a new twist at the hand of Willie.  I was excited to see where he would take his voice next.  The emotional response is the same whether savoring a good concert, reading a well-crafted book or watching a superb film.  When well done, a story engages us no matter what form it takes.
