“The unread story is not a story; it is little black marks on wood pulp. The reader, reading it, makes it live: a live thing, a story.”
― Ursula K. Le Guin,
How much of our story remains unread, unshared and why? This quote brings me a step closer to where I’ve been going in this blog for awhile. Oh I meander aways but my intention is to get their never the less. I wish to share my story. Oh I guess I share it with every thing I write here. After all Doesn’t our philosophical views reflect our stories? I guess if that’s true than the quotes I use and my art also reflect who I am, who I’ve been and possibly clues as to how it all turns out.
Perhaps then we tell our story in everything we do or create. It could be our whole purpose of communication and art–to create, co-create and recreate our story.

So far the trip to London has been pretty amazing. London is a city with beautiful architecture and direct people. I loved the tower of London but found it strangely sanitized. I also love the tube station.
On the subject of the quote, I really like this one but find myself butting up against the phrase ‘wheel of prayer and scripture’ unless I start to look at it as Ms. LeGuin’s definition of life in which case I say ‘ah’ and yet is the truth a mere reflection, the merest shadow of reality and then does the wheel become a sphere, one that we can study but not fully hold. Namaste, G
