"If the story taps you on the shoulder, tell it" is the way of the storyteller Joel ben Izzy.
He is masterful and feels the stories as they arise. I do not yet trust that tap. I am unsure if the story is what the moment needs or whether it is me wanting attention.
Every time I went with the tap, it did become clear which one it was.
So, the advice stands: If I feel the tap, I tell the story. Because then I discover what the story has for me.
