For anyone that has learned the power of narrative and story particularly, if they were not in control of those stories that were supposedly their story. A single oppressive story shapes the lives of all who tell it and receive it. It shrink-wraps everyone like a web.
I give thanks to Ben Bellows who shared this gorgeous video and I dedicate it to Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes -- the queen and the trudge- the fairy and footslogger keeping stories alive but, even more important, for reminding people of their own power as storytellers and audience. Your/my/our story has not been told. To find your voice, start by talking.
