It’s a dream of mine to be a public speaker. Because I have an awful lot to say, I’m writing a keynote speech in anticipation of being asked to deliver one. I have the gall to believe that people will pay to hear it someday soon. Unbelievable, right? It’s very much a work in progress, but here’s the opening.

Once upon a time, there lived a dear old man who was much beloved by his village.

He had no children of his own, but everyone called him Uncle as they’d known him since their birth. No one, not even the oldest among them, could remember a time when Uncle wasn’t an old man.

One evening, just as the sun was going down, Uncle could be seen outside, under the street lamp, searching for something. Uncle was notorious for getting into harmless mischief, so the villagers kept an eye on him as they finished their tasks. Soon it was dark, and still Uncle searched the ground, stooped over and focused on the ground. People began to come out of their houses to help.
