Stories Are How We Know

I love stories. I love how they connect seemingly random instances and characters. I love how you can translate them into different languages and come to similar conclusions (for the most part). I love how they can make things seem to make sense both in the world of the story and in the physical realm we inhabit. I love them. I love listening to them, I love writing them, I love digging into them and learning from them.

It thus seemed to make sense, after years of directionless posting to this blog and social media, to provide myself with something of a story line this year and give myself some purpose and artistic direction. So, after much reflection, I am dedicating 2017 to stories, or more specifically

How stories from the past affect the present
 
And maybe just to keep things focused, I'll really be looking at

How stories from the past affect my present
 
Now don't worry, I'm not about to write academic essays instead of blog posts and songs, but I will be thinking about this prompt as I write, tour, post, interact with people, and in general move through the year.

And in case you forgot which song this post title is referencing, here you go 😉:
