More than the sum of its facts

How much would describing dinner as cold dead fish on rice help you enjoy your sushi?

How special is it to run exactly 42.195 km?

A dictionary would describe Yoga as ‘a system of stretching and positional exercises derived from a Hindu discipline to promote good health, fitness, and control of the mind’. Yet, the single word, ‘yoga’, carries more weight than its more elaborate description.

Sushi, marathon and yoga – all of these are stories that that add up to become more than their constituent facts.
