  • Mood:
amberley pointed me at a review of a book called "Why?" by Charles Tilley, and it really highlights something I'd never known before about how explanations can show where a relationship is.

It really brought home to me why I'm comfortable working with Jet on listening to his stories and listening to his explanations and trying to do story for reasons rather than just "laying down the law". Sometimes straight boundaries and conventions are necessary; but how a story feeds a relationship now seems much clearer to me.

The Longmont Library is getting a copy of "Why?" and I'm now first in line. :-)
