I did this thing today: I chose walking over driving, despite the 50% chance of rain.
And you know what happened? On the way home I walked for 30 minutes in the rain and... I got a little wet. That's it! And even more, it was actually awesome!
I'm totally doing this again!
Inquiry is my most direct route to understanding. If I find language for the archetypal stories I encounter, if I can weave them with image systems available in the world around me, I find a way to connect with others’ intimate histories. I think sincere witness can function like a skeleton key. A good story—one that knows its use and power—startling imagery and syntax, and a curious perspective can help us bypass problematic social and political structures that are in part designed to limit voice. | Ladan Osman
