Just One Story

Watched a video today of a talk by the Nigerian writer Chimamanda Adichie. The basic idea is that of the single story, and a beautifully framed idea it is. Nothing terribly new, but something terribly true. What oft was thought but ne'er so well expressed.

Which leads me to realise, we can never hear enough stories - never know enough. I've always known that, but not quite so feelingly as when listening to Ms Adichie.
