Shy of Strangers

Stories can really only become themselves when they are allowed to develop organically and spontaneously. When we strive less and relax, depending on the turbo charged skill of circling, all sorts of new information emerges naturally and at the right time. The story takes on a life of its own.

One could go so far as to say that when we give up control, the story is in control of the class. It emerges, as it were, in its own way and by itself. It exhibits a will to proceed in its own direction, to create its own life. Given the opportunity, it does quite well by itself!

When we mess with stories, taking charge of details and flow, they hide. Stories are shy of strangers.
