— quote from The Speed of Darkness, 1968
Muriel Rukeyser, an American poet, philosopher and social activist
It’s akin to the concept behind “connecting the dots” or “it’s all about how strangely we’re all connected…somehow.” Because stories are our lives woven to make us realize we are more similar than we are different. In stories, we find our purpose, our voice, our calling. Is there a natural order in the universe? Yes. Where one ends, another begins. Much like… stories.
