Kathleen,

I like the figure of reciprocity implied in the flow of stories: “And it’s through those narratives — the ones we tell those around us, and the ones those around us tell us — that we have the opportunity to help one another reach our individual and collective goals.” I really have to slow down reading this so not to replace “around” with “about”. It is a very fine point: the stories told to us may not be about us but may help us and those around us. Thank you for making such a subtle point with such artistry and economy.
