‘And stories are all about conflict. What lies between a person and what that person wants is work.’*
Hoping good things will happen is an event-led view of the future.

The good news is, we can only do it with others.
Like in the acknowledgements at the end of a book when the author lists all the people who have helped get them to publishing.
So many stories waiting to be written.
