Second Story Window is an expression of my story and the stories around me. The second story is where the great or grim realities of experience metaphorically reside. It is visible, however, making our way to the second story is often by invitation only – a place reserved. We see the light at night with curtains drawn or undrawn and may catch a glimpse. When we are privileged to join in the view from the inside of the second story window, we see the world in a whole new way.
And so the stories go; we are surrounded by stories. Some are loud and personal. Others quiet and unfamiliar. Second story – Story Window. Whichever way, we are connected through our stories.
