I was a year old when this picture was taken. I’ve matriculated from a long line of storytellers on both sides. Grandpa Rob lived in a Mayberryesque town in Clinton, Missouri, where I spent half-summers. Grandpa Mack on mom’s side had a farm where I spent the other half of summers. On Friday nights, Mack had his buddies over for poker. Reading comics by flashlight in the hallway, I could hear their jokes and stories echo down the hallway. This seeded my journey into storytelling.
