Humans are hardwired for telling stories. Since the beginning of time, we have told stories to try to explain the unexplainable. Our stories reveal what is most important to us, from the most basic, common experiences to complex and troublesome situations and ideas. But most importantly, through our stories, we share our connection with each other and provide insight into the meaning of life.
Talking to the Trees: Big-Time Epiphanies of a Small-Town Girl is a collection of twenty-seven stories by former Northwest Arkansas Times columnist Beverly Beldin Litzinger. These articles are the stories of her life and detail some of the experiences she encountered as she struggled to find meaning in everyday occurrences. They represent the process she experienced while coming to understand parts, if not all, of the Big Picture.
The themes in Talking to the Trees are universal. The experiences are not uncommon and can be shared by all who love stories, by all who are on a journey, and by all who are trying to figure out life as they live it.
