“I had always felt life first as a story: and if there is a story, there is a story-teller.” – G.K. Chesterton
This is a blog about life. Not just my life, either — though I will warn you up-front that I tend to be pretty darn introspective. This is a blog about life in all its poetic, relational, musical fullness. About coffee and sunsets and books and love and cereal (especially cereal).
I think life makes most sense as a story. We don’t experience it as bullet points, after all. We experience it as narrative. If you think about it, all the elements of a story show up in our everyday experience: character, plot, dialogue, crisis, irony, just to name a few.
