The Story You Want to Hear

Back to the story

It’s still all about the story though right? That’s why we’re here, why we get sucked in. We get sucked into a story that is maybe better written than we could write, or that we want to take the time to write, but one that almost makes us feel as though it’s a story we did write.

  1. Maybe, as I mentioned, we’re all in a disenchanted season, and
  2. We need confirmation that we’re not alone, and
  3. We’re seeking a solution (if we’re honest).


Look the disenchantment is real I believe, I’m not trying to downplay it, though I do believe it’s at different levels for different people.

We’re at a strange point though, where things are not just slightly different from what you see, they can sometimes be GLARINGLY different.
