excerpt from THE DANGER OF A SINGLE STORY

The American writer Alice Walker wrote this about her southern relatives who had moved to the north. She introduced them to a book about the southern life that they had left behind. “They sat around, reading the book themselves, listening to me read the book, and a kind of paradise was regained.” I would like to end with this thought: That when we reject the single story, when we realize that there is never a single story about any place, we regain a kind of paradise. Thank you. (Applause)
From a talk by Chimamanda Adichie on TED.

May our story making during this gateway year and all the years to follow…
may our story making of this precious life, lead us back to the Paradise,
the inner and outer Pureland…lead us back to our True Home…
