We are constructed by our stories.
The stories we tell and the stories we are told.
The stories we hear at bedtime.
The stories woven in the rugs we walk upon.
The stories poured over in comic book pages.
The stories revealed to us in prints like;
16th c engravings of Emblemata,
18th c etchings on funerary customs or
Ukiyo-e woodcuts from the Meiji era.
We are all constructed by our stories.
