their own stories

“Begins, the twisty turny conflagration of the human hell-bent psyche in opposition to the flow of time. I’d save every day like a treasure, breaking against the rocky shore, trying to use the frail, tender flesh to create a story in opposition, to reject the flow, change the course, press the change, press the future, try to escape the strong hand of destiny, writing their own stories in predictable ways. For who can truly compose new endings to endlessly ancient tales. Every bit of our possible lives had been covered in depth by the Greeks, and then re-explained and explored on the Elizabethan stage.”
