The 96-Word Story That’s Blowing My Mind

Every once in awhile I hear a quote or a poem or a story that sticks with me for days. That’s exactly what happened recently when I heard Jess Lively refer to a story called “The Two Wolves” on a podcast episode. Immediately, I pressed pause and headed over to Google to learn more.
