  • My first desire as I look at this picture is to say 'this pie is delicious, you gotta try it!'. One may say things like that when trying to express the things one feels.

    But then I go on and start to storytell it. 'This first bite was the best piece I tasted during my 2-month trip around Europe.' Even after one year I can still flavor butter and chocolate dancing over my tongue.

    Finally I quit the talking. I open the file where I'm writing my novel and type down 'after all those years this was the finest first bite in my career' - said the restaurateur and gastronomic critic. He continued in a playful voice 'the smell was so yummy that I couldn't resist the first bite.' He slided his thumb down his girlfriend's cheek to finish ''I'll take you to Rome to try it.'.

    Maybe I don't love storytelling. Maybe I'm just in love. Or maybe you are now desiring to experience how this pie would taste to you and then I'll have one more reason to love storytelling.
