‘STORIES ARE NEVER ACCIDENTS …

… By the time they have reached us they have usually lived many lives, travelled long distances and been shared many times. They are born out of people’s desires, and they awaken our own. They are ways by which we search out what life means, and seek our place within the mystery of it.’
