Stories

The way we often heal is by telling each other stories. If I was to share with you, a story about my mother, a story that I have to retell, over and over, because of my history and because of her history, that we keep repeating, in a pattern we have trouble breaking, then perhaps you would tell me a story about your mother, about your pattern, about your history. In that sharing, that telling of one anothers history, we could perhaps heal, in some small way, some significant way, and we could begin a new story, one that has a definite and more sustainable future.
