I believe in stories. I believe we’re constantly bombarded by nothing but stories; the stories we tell ourselves, the ones we tell others, the ones others tell us, political stories, religious stories, ethical and morality stories, stories about how much our lives could be enhanced if only we bought into this concept or that concept, product, or latest craze, trend or fashion. I also believe stories to have transformative powers not necessarily always for the good but as the story unfolds circumstances and lives can be changed as a consequence of them.
