Each word

I thought it was interesting that for each Pueblo person, they have a different story and each word "has a story of it's own". I think it is really rather odd to associate a story with each word, because stories are made of words in Englis and not the other way around. Actually, when I think about it more, each "kanji" (Chinese character) in Japanese has its own story. The kanji for man consists of "rice field" and "power". The kanji for woman comes from the way a woman use to sit way back when.
