Ferrucci talks about how human beings are able to “resonate” with other human beings. I love this description. He tells us that the ability is with us from birth, but if it doesn’t develop sufficiently we are in trouble. I think the ability can be cultivated at any time in our lives. It’s certainly easier when we are younger, before we’ve had years of not resonating or not resonating well. But the ability is always there inside us, waiting to be tapped. I think the means is through storytelling. If you are ever feeling out of sorts, alone or untouched, try telling the story of something that has touched you.
