Many a Possibility | Daily Prompt: Blogger With a Cause

If your day to day responsibilities were taken care of and you could throw yourself completely behind a cause, what would it be?

I’d read to kids.

As a kid, storytelling was one of the best parts of everyday. My parents and my grandmother had different styles and their choice of books spoke of their personality. But they weren’t the only storytellers I knew. Every Sabbath, there was a new person to regale us kids with tales from far and wide about kids like us. Even TV offered such a good time, from USA’s Sesame Street to the PhilippinesBatibot. And, of course, the unforgettable John Hurt of The Storyteller from Jim Henson Hour.

Stories—both fictional and true—made a lasting impression on me. A great number of personal desires and ambitions were results from stories. And innumerable dreams and worlds came from listening and reading about such possibilities.

To read to kids is bring forth hope, strengthen faith, and instill love in many a possibility.

  1. I remember Jim Henson’s Story Hour! I just watched it again a few weeks ago on Netflix, too!

      Wow. Cool.
      Of all the stories, I love two the most: “The Soldier and Death” and “The Luck Child”. Really good pieces.
