What Happens Next?

Stories surround us. Every encounter is a small story with its own beginning, middle , and end. Even when we don't know the details, even if we aren't privy to the ending, the story captures our attention.

I must admit to liking narrative--a plot driven saga. But I also resonate to a story that relies on one note played over and over. In that type of story one event, or one character, or one event is examined , turned, explored, and becomes a metaphor.

And then I can examine my own life within that metaphor without being drawn into the maelstrom.
