As I moseyed through the pages of Wonderbook by Jeff VanderMeer, I came across Ursula K. Le Guin’s essay, “A Message about Messages,” and found this stellar quote:

“I believe storytelling is one of the most useful tools we have for achieving meaning: It serves to keep our communities together by asking and saying who we are, and it’s one of the best tools an individual has to find out who I am, what life may ask of me and how I can respond.”
