I’m a big fan of stories. Aren’t we all? One of my classes called on us to create a symbol for a story. We got to choose from a list of about 30 or so stories, all of which were well-known (to me at least). As usual, my issue stemmed from having too many favorites. I never can pick just one. I spent three days creating Mad Hatter top hats for Alice in Wonderland before realizing, they were just hats. Beautiful hats, but no one would have any idea which story I referenced when they looked at them. Technically, I fulfilled the requirement of the assignment, but not the spirit of it.
I did the assignment again. Yep, that’s right. I did it again. Now, I can’t claim my symbol is an oriflamme, but maybe the story it represents does?
‘Til next time,
