"Tiger got to hunt, bird got to fly; Man got to sit and wonder, 'Why, why, why?' Tiger got to sleep, bird got to land; Man got to tell himself he understand." -- Kurt Vonnegut, "Cat's Cradle"

We're all story-telling animals.
I'm no exception.

I've lived in a lot of different settings in the US and Canada;
I've met many characters, and befriended some of them too.

My plot has been relatively straightforward:
School, Family, Friends, Music, Leisure, Faith.
But I've mostly lived in my head: in thoughts, in dreams and in stories.
Stories I've read,
Stories that have been shared with me,
Stories that I've shared in return.
(And sometimes stories I've imagined.)

I write a lot:
Mostly academic papers (in the Liberal Arts),
Some music (choral, piano and folk),
A few emails (to friends and colleagues alike),
But hardly ever any stories.

I came here to try my hand at writing stories again--let's see how it goes.
You're welcome to join in!
Because after all,
We're all story-telling animals.
