A young woman gets to know the recipient of her bone marrow donation. A hippie oddesey featuring celebrity cameos of all stripes. A doctor paying his dues learns lessons about life and death.
Colorado storytellers of all walks of life came together at The Lyric in Fort Collins on December 5th for "There's No Place Like Home: A Community Storytelling Event", hosted by KUNC's Luke Runyon, with music from Matthew Wilburn Skinner of the band Tallgrass.
"My family has left me behind... in the middle of a national park... in Canada."
"We're just two teenagers hitchiking, and we're saying, 'whoa, dreams do come true'."
"On the one hand I think 'Facebook is no place for a real dialogue...", and on the other hand I think, 'maybe I'm the one person in the world they can never get mad at?'"
"Presence is what you have to offer somebody. Period. Especially when they're dying."
"Taffy was the greatest dog in the world. She was our shelter from the storm, our refuge from the world that was going on. We took this lesson to adulthood."
"I'm about to buy the same home... for the second time!"
KUNC's next community storytelling event is coming in March 2019. Stay tuned for details!
