"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.
