Everyone has a story: sentences and chapters that explain why we do, say, think, and feel. A story is an invitation to understanding and a doorway to Self. But what if parts of a story are too painful to share, too dangerous to open? There is a mutual fear that prevents a mutual hope of understanding between people. Patient sincerity and willingness to listen, unprejudiced, can help create a safe space where connections happen. May we all have and be that person for someone.
Story Withheld will be shown in the Springville Spring Salon. Opening reception April 24.
