Billy Joe Fudge: Thanks for accolades; on comparison to Dr. Neat
A thank you to George Rice. A lament for a lost art: Storytelling. Reviving it would save our culture from further harm.
Comments re article 95619 George Rice - BJF must have had close relationship with Dr. Neat
By Billy Joe Fudge
I can think of no greater compliment than to be mentioned in the same conversation with the late and great "Dr. Neat." Thanks for the accolades.
They are greatly appreciated and my spirit is re-invigorated.
Storytelling is quickly becoming a lost art or at least a much under-practiced art.
In my humble opinion, it is high time we made every effort to revive the art and save our culture from further harm.
A good story delivered by a skilled artisan is to communication what gold is to metals or diamonds are to minerals.
However and sadly, our culture no longer encourages the "Practice of Parables" and we as individuals, our culture and indeed, humanity are great diminished because of it.
I am so bored by the mundaneness of talking about the weather, the flu, the degradation of our society and the lost cause which is the Millennial Generation that I could scream.
Let us endeavor to uplift our neighbors far and wide with a good story. A good story which becomes better and better with each telling just as biscuit and gravy gets better and better with each eating.
Thanks again to our most adept Egyptian Storyteller and Parablist, Sir George Rice for keeping the flame of oral communication burning brightly in the Great Wooded South. - Billy Joe Fudge
