Stories, Not Atoms

“The universe is made of stories, not of atoms.”

–Muriel Rukeyser

Make a list of stories that make up your universe. Share part of your list with just enough detail to intrigue us. “The time that Jack Beatty and I climbed over the fence and dove in the swimming pool at night.” “The time Mom fell, and it took six grown men to lift her.” “The time Becky told me she wasn’t a virgin anymore.” Then choose one story from your list to tell us the whole thing.
