It is embedded in our actions and our reactions.
Story shapes, and is shaped, by our thoughts and reflections.
It can enable or disable us,
motivate and transform
individuals, families, communities and nations.
Story creates and reveals our identity.
We all tell our own story in many ways -
through words or paint or clay or glass or textile,
through what we create and what we destroy,
through protest or intervention,
through our actions and affiliations.
I tell my story through dolls -
the joys and desolation of my life,
the triumphs and the failures,
the healing and the transformation,
the human and environmental issues which force me to respond.
