Words that Ring True

     Life is traumatic. At some point you realize this. You can play games around it - OR - you can embrace it. Flip the whole fear / avoidance thing right around, and give it a mighty bear-hug. Quiver in fear - OR - go for it the best you can - one decent jab.

     "The thing about a story is that you dream it as you tell it, hoping that others might then dream along with you, and in this way memory and imagination and language combine to make spirits in the head. There is an illusion of aliveness."

     O'Brien T. "The things they carried." Mariner Books, Boston, 1990. One real book!
