"The stories people tell have a way of taking care of them," says Badger in Barry Lopez's book Crow and Weasel. "Sometimes a person needs a story more than food to stay alive."The hardest stories to tell are the ones about the times that life broke us; and yet the are the stories we need to tell the most. We need, as somebody once wrote, to follow our heartbreak. By writing about the trauma and loss we've endured, we can drain the infection and heal ourselves -- we'll give voice to the pain and tell the stories that we need to tell in order to heal.
