Diane Glancy, “Migration and Stasis” from the collection of essays “In-Between Places” (University of Arizona Press, 2005)

The art of the story is the generative force of storytelling, a need that is everywhere, like air. An old word for breath is the voice as it tells the story.

The story is a process of an irresolvable need to tell, irresolvable other than in the telling and telling of stories.

Stories are old gatherers collecting twigs for cave fires. They ignite from one another. They burn in many ways (88).
