There are always two stories:
One the reader reads,
One the reader dreams while reading.
~~Sally Jane Driscoll
I write a certain kind of story because that’s what I need to read. Maybe you need to read that kind of story, maybe you don’t. Let’s figure this out.
You could take a survey: “Elves (yes/no)—Zombies (yes/no)—Exploding cars (yes/no)—Happily ever after or apocalypse (choose one)—G, R or X rated (choose one).” Hmm… probably not!
A certain feeling drives me to write. Some music gives me that feeling. If you like the music, you might like my stories.
The song I’m sharing below evokes this feeling in me. But the song is also special for another reason. The words express one of the things my stories try to express: how our spirits reach from our past through our present to our future.
Listen. Then, if the song touches you, subscribe to my new email list to see if my stories can touch you, too.
