A Story of Sloth

When I heard that the Stoop Storytelling Series in Baltimore was presenting a show on the Seven Deadly Sins, I knew right away that I wanted to tell a story about my favorite Deadly Sin, Sloth. My two problems were (1) how to craft a compelling story about my lack of ability to complete or even take on big projects and then (2) how to come up with enough enthusiasm to carry that project out. You can hear what I came up with on the Baltimore Public Radio station WYPR’s program, The Signal. It’ll be broadcast this Friday night at 7 p.m. and again Saturday afternoon at 1 p.m. You can listen to the show here and eventually it will be archived here.
