The Start

We all have stories that we have accumulated over the course of our lives and that overtime in the retelling, have been refined, either consciously or not, with an element of “Never let a few (forgotten or misremembered) facts get in the road of a good story”. I heard this sentiment expressed recently as our stories being a mixture of personal mythology and selective recollection!

In deciding to capture on paper some of my stories – partly in response to suggestions that “you should write a book” – I thought that I can at least be true to my memories if not always all of the facts – hence the tag line “Stories My Memory Tells Me”
