Listening for stories

Long before I wrote stories, I listened for stories.  Listening for them is something more acute than listening to them.  I suppose it's an early form of participation in what goes on.  Listening children know stories are there.  When their elders sit and begin, children are just waiting and hoping for one to come out, like a mouse from its hole.
