Tell me our story. I've been telling it so long I want to know if we're reading the same book. Have I gotten it right or do you find it unrecognizable? What are your favorite parts? Who are your favorite characters? Dare I hope that I am one? I'm sure there are boring sections— there always are in the chronicles of any adventure. I wonder if you're skimming the bits I think are most important. As with all stories, our experience shapes what we take away from it. We have told this tale from many times and many places; we have shared lifetimes between the pages. Tell me your version. I want to read it again.
