Re-visioning our stories

My thanks to Tess Healy for this quote, which comes from a book by Laurel Richardson.

The story of a life is less than the actual life, because the story told is selective, partial, contextually constructed and because the life is not yet over. But the story of a life is also more than the life, the contours and meanings allegorically extending to others, others seeing themselves through another‘s life story, re-visioning their own, arriving where they started and knowing the place for the first time. ~Laurel Richardson, Fields of Play: Constructing an Academic Life
