Possessing a story like no other

-A A +A
By Kirsten Laskey

Some stories are just plain better than others. Perhaps what gives certain tales the edge is a quality or characteristic that makes them different from the pack.

These narratives have never been previously uttered; they do not feature some rehashed, recycled story format. So your attention sits up a little higher as the yarn unfolds.

I heard such stories during the UNM-LA graduation Friday night.

While sitting in a metal folding chair at the back of the parish hall at the Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church and listening to the Española Valley High School choir sing “I Believe I Can Fly,” I took a short walk down memory lane of my own graduations. The strolls were short because I could barely remember anything about them.

My high school graduation is completely fuzzy. I can’t remember what any of the speakers said or who even stepped up to the podium. My only clear thought is that I threw my cap into the air and then immediately regretted it because I wanted that tassel as a souvenir.
