I spoke to my nephew today and said
“Let’s write a script, let’s write a story.
Based on facts, but fiction will do.
It’s our parallel story.
I have lived it and will wait to learn yours.
Let’s write a story.”
From generation to generation.
Not usually seen this way, but it’s our story
Our parallel stories, l’dor va’dor.
Mine is about survival but more then that its about living and thriving and moving on. It’s about people who came before and those who will come after. It’s what I’ve learned and what I’ve shown. It’s about what comes next before it’s time to rest.
We all have parallel stories. My family and friends and the kids I teach; their family and friends and the people they reach. We all have parallel stories. We listen with respect. Our parallel stories.
