Only once upon a time?

for we are story makers, not just storytellers*
Robin Wall Kimmerer

To forgive yourselves and others constantly is necessary. Not only is everyone screwed up,, but everyone screw up.**
Anne Lamott

I think that allowing ourselves a new story may be
an act of forgiveness, a
new beginning,
Whether the story change is
major or minor.
There’s more than one
“Once upon a time” available to us,
Forgiveness being a larger story for
our personal tales to be held within,
So here I am,
Once again upon a time …
