i set out to write about getting out of a trap
finding this journey by necessity validated the status quo, but acknowledging a running from
and attempted to confront this
where did this story immerge/emerge?
what are strategies of confrontation?
what does it mean to chase something?
like a bag of bones one has felt connected to, without prior connection (or seeming to not have prior connection)
to, when unearthing this story, one finds there WAS a connection, a familial and biological and historical connection, what is one to do with that, to be thrust into a different story not of one’s choosing
well, no stories arise of our own choosing, but we are constantly reacting to them, and through our reactions creating new relationships and trajectories and frames
what can you live with, and what can you not live without?
