Who doesn't love a good story? We begin hearing stories when we're tiny children and then develop our own. Sometimes joyful. Sometimes painful. For most of us, there's a rich and compelling mix. As the poet and writer Maya Angelou once said, “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” And Nancy Jasper feels much the same.
