The stories and subtext crosses and collides…sometimes with surprising results. Life does not come with an instruction book, nor are we born with operating instructions. The journey carries mystery and it is filled with discovery. Sense-making may happen along the route...or not. All around us are the stories of others, mingling with our own. A kaleidoscope of life and color, scents and sounds...waiting to be unraveled.
