Off with the Rats head. Bones Chapter 01.

I have created this for storytellers, how to penetrate a story to tease out its possible meanings. I have two thoughts about doing this. Maybe,  I’m giving too much away making it too easy. Part of the process of understanding is the time it takes to make connections and seeing them in your own life and world. However, as an elder, I also want to build bridges and make connections across the worlds. We live in an increasingly material, mechanistic world, the concept of metaphor and its application is becoming increasingly difficult. So here are the bones and list of characters.  Blessings on your storytelling.
