Stories move in circles”

Stories move in circles

They don’t move in straight lines.
So it helps if you listen in circles.
There are stories inside stories
and stories between stories,
and finding your way through them
is as easy and as hard
as finding your way home.

And part of the finding is
the getting lost.

And when you’re lost,
you start to look around
and to listen.
