Single drop, multiple ripples

Stories Move in Circles

Stories move in circles.  They don’t move in straight lines.  So it helps if you listen in circles.  There are stories inside stories and stories between stories, and finding your way through them is as easy  and as hard as finding your way home.  And part of the finding is getting lost.  And when you’re lost, you start to look around and listen.”
