Put them in a story… I read this quote the other day: “All sorrows can be borne if you put them in a story, or tell a story about them.” (Isak Dineson). And now I know why I am addicted to words. The quote came from The Examined Life by Stefan Grosz. He commented: if “we cannot find a way of telling our story, our story tells us – we dream those stories, we develop symptoms, or we find ourselves acting in ways we don’t understand.” So, tell those stories….
Writing is my life, and reading, but in between I enjoy relationships with family and friends, love speaking and reading Polish, Russian and German and currently am interested in rescue sanctuaries for abused bears in Ukraine and Bulgaria.
