Life is the stories we leave behind.Life is the stories we leave behind.

Stories are everywhere; books and movies, newspapers and songs, cave paintings and photographs, poems and tattoos. Even to-do lists and grocery receipts have stories in them, if you know how to read them.

Stories are how we make sense of our lives and our world. We can’t help but try and organize our experiences into stories in one form or another, or they become nothing more than a series of sequential but unrelated events.

This blog is about crafting stories–both personal stories (like journals and blogs) and creative stories (like fiction and fine art). It’s also about my story, which gives me leave to include just about anything I want to share.
