365 Days, Day 273

He had not a cent in his pocket, but he had faith. He had decided, the night before, that he would be as much an adventurer as the ones he had admired in books (Paulo Coelho)

Stories are medicine.

They have such power; they do not require that we do, be, act anything - we need only listen (Clarisa Pinkola Estes)

When women get together, they tell stories. This is how it has always been. Telling stories is our way of saying who we are, where we have come from, what we know, and where we might be headed (Jalaja Bonheim)

“No man can walk out on his own story” - a theme from the animated film Rango. The animation was amazing! The film caught my attention and enthralled me.

Our Stories are unique and we create the plot with all its adventurous peaks and necessary quiet moments. We include certain characters and are sometimes surprised by unexpected characters with their sinister plans and clever tricks. We may be seduced by some of the characters who enter our Story, letting them weave their webs around us, until: too late – we are trapped! But it is our Story, so we can change the plot, start a new chapter with the experience and knowledge of the previous ones under out belts.

We can head out into the sunset. But we can never walk out on our own story.
