I have friends who are Quakers, friends who are Unitarian Universalists, friends who Dialogue in the Bohmian tradition, friends who are Mystics, friends who are Poets, and so many other friends who live lives of wisdom and wonder... this is my account of the meeting with these friends...

an important something about storytelling

"Genre stories are about exceptional people, and may note the ways they're normal. Mainstream stories are about normal people, and may note the ways they're exceptional. This is why Lord of the Rings is not a genre fantasy; it's about an ordinary person caught up in exceptional events. Had it focused on Aragorn, few people would know of it today."

this is more than just about storytelling- or, it isnt, because in a way, our human life is ALL about storytelling... and so, this quote from Will (its all one thing) has much to say about the "meeting" with our own existence, and each other...

Ill say some more of whaat Im seeing here, after I sit with it for a bit

thank you Will!
