The Art of Storytelling

I came across this short blog post: The Art of Storytelling: What Makes A Good Storyteller?

Our ancestors gathered around the open fire or hearth in the darkest depths of their dwellings and used stories to pass on their culture to the next generation. The stories would help explain abstract concepts like religion or the ways of nature, or the stories would tell the tribe or the village the latest news from faraway lands.

Somehow a fireplace and storytelling is a match made in heaven, isn't it?
