Welcome to eat stories like grapes, where we focus in on what it means to live life as a meaningful narrative.
My name is Clara, and I’m glad you stopped by. Here we will be talking about slowing down enough to recognize beauty in our lives and in the world that surrounds us. We’ll be learning what it means to live life unconventionally and to use the freedoms we have to craft a better existence for ourselves and our communities. We’ll be waking up to some new ideas, digging up some old ones, sharing our own personal stories, asking the difficult questions, and, basically, doing life together.
If you’re an old friend and you’re wondering what happened to the old “story-a-week” format, please take a look at this post which repeats a lot of what you just read here, but also explains the changes I’ve made and why I’ve made them 🙂
I’d love to hear from you. Tell me a story, ask me a question, or make a comment here.
