Riding backwards

Some of you already know I’m a longtime fan of Story People. Brian Andreas’s little stories seem simple. But try to write a tiny story that says so much. Not as easy as it looks.

For Valentine’s Day this year, he created a couple videos with his whimsical, colorful, joyous illustrations.

This one reminds me of one of the delicious stories of the Mullah Nasruddin. One day he was riding his donkey backward. The villagers asked him why.

“I am not sitting backward on the donkey,” he said. “The donkey is facing the wrong way.”

The Mullah Nasruddin even has his own Facebook page now. You’ll find lots of his stories there. If you want more, check some of the other transliterated spellings, which can be found in the Wikipedia article cited above.
