Meet the StoryPeople
"If you hold on to the handle, she said, it's easier to maintain the illusion of control. But it's more fun if you just let the wind carry you. "
The above is from one of my favorite websites, StoryPeople.com. It's a bit hard to explain StoryPeople. Each "story" is a free-verse poem, or a snippet of conversation. There's just enough to evoke an image; the rest is up to you. They're accompanied by sophisticated, yet child-like line drawings that take a moment to see, and hours to See.
StoryPeople are the work of Iowa artist Brian Andreas and his creative team of "artists, activists, healers and tinkerers."
I highly recommend you check it out. And while you're there, sign up for the e-mail, Story of the Day. It's a wonderful way to start your mornings.
