Telling Tales

   
   
“For, while the tale of how we suffer, and how we are delighted, and how we may triumph is never new, it must always be heard. There isn’t any other tale to tell, it’s the only light we’ve got in all this darkness.”
   
– James Baldwin, ‘Sonny’s Blues’ from Going to Meet the Man
   (Dial Press, 1965)
