You remember it differently. You remember that the cold settled in stages, that small curve of light was shaved from the moon night after night, until you were no longer surprised the sky was black, that the chipmunk ran to hide in the dark, not simply to a door that led to its escape. Our visitors told the same stories people always tell. One night, giving me a lesson in storytelling, you said, "Any life will seem dramatic if you omit mention of most of it."
in this sentence I don't get what the writer purpose is by " most of it"
Dose it mean: Any life would be theatrical and moving if you omit good things?
This context is from a short story named: Snow by Ann Beattie
