Freeing the Angel

‘Don’t tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass.’ Anton Chekhov

If I tell you, I run the risk that (a) you won’t actually be listening, (b) you won’t really understand what I mean or (c) you won’t remember what I said. (And in any case, if I can tell you by just putting it into words, I might as well write those words down on a piece of paper so you can read them in your own time.) No, I want to show you. I want to bring my ideas to life by weaving a story around them. I want to breathe life into the concepts by creating a story that connects with your experiences. I want to make a lightbulb spark to life in your mind. I want to help you understand something, to see something, anew.
