From a meditation on the 4 Principles of RCAP*

Story Hunter

Stories lie in mirrors.
Stories slip in film strips and along slide rulers.
Stories twist and recombine like the strands of helix.

Each story is open and blind.
Each story offers a façade onto the unknown.
With instruments like the squares of a Johari Window, we can remap; recognize what is offered, respect what is, and share the responsibility for the sifting, keeping and transforming.

Storytelling can be recursive and stretch beyond a thousand and one nights.
With other stories we interpret stories.
