Some Stories Do!

“It is well understood that each of us lives in a constructed world, for most purposes made up of unacknowledged social narratives so deeply embedded in our psyches that we rarely recognize them, let alone doubt their truth. To a degree they must conform to the actual case of ‘what is’ since if they were too off, our stories would kill us. Some stories do.” Gary Snyder, “The Mountain Spirit’s True [No] Nature,” published in Back on the Fire, 2007.
