A remarkable short essay just landed in Cagibi Express! Angela Townsend discusses the art of storytelling via religion, breakfast, flowers, galaxies, and Vin Diesel’s film career.
'I want to tell you everything, you know. I want to bear witness to every star, every impossible feat of mercy, every pancake, every rescue.
But I am made of stories and moon dust, flesh and limits. The Big Story is told seed by seed, Cheerio by Cheerio, note by note, awe by awe. Each tiny “oh” deserves its own sermon.
There is time to tell them all, here among the great flotilla of poets and prophets and first-year seminarians and amateurs of all ages.'
