Dude, what do you think about these convolutional neural networks we’ve switched over to? They’re rocking it right? Totally! Throughput is through the roof, the clients are loving it, and now that we’ve got it …
This story explores emotional baggage. How would our social norms change if we could see concrete physical manifestations of love? Would we be bound to those we fell in love with? Or would we still occasional go our own way?
The first step to being a god is becoming a barrister. Death was not a king or a crone as some of the ancients thought, It was not a skeleton; it did not ride a buffalo or carry a scythe. No, tdeath was a bureaucracy.

I am excited about this. Not everything is simple, but in the middle of it all is a feeling that is. A feeling which, I’ve found–when I’ve had some courage and commitment to listen to it in my life– has brought me to the brightest places. Uncanny conversations, relevant exchanges, revolutions of friendship and creative adventure, answers, treasures, remedies and the very best surprises seem to come with more ease when I have some willingness to follow an interior sense of home. This is a feeling like joy, like recognizing something new that looks somehow familiar; like part of my own story that I remember with affection. Like I remember where I come from, sometimes I remember where I’m going.
To be sure, it is work sometimes to follow, let alone hear, this internal sense of direction. But I keep trying, and sometimes, the directions are louder than others. Like now. Like with this event Dan and I are making with and for our friends (those known, and yet-unknown : )). It’s a good challenge to bring it into being, but in the middle of it all it is a deep happiness… a feeling of yes and joy and of-course, that makes me feel like it is the nicest idea in the world for us to gather people ’round to listen to and be delighted by each other.

So people ask, “What is this Here’s the Story?” And if you didn’t know me, you’d think having been there as the germination seeds were sown I’d know the answer. That I’d understand, at least, my own vision for it. But I sort of don’t understand, and honestly I sort of don’t want to understand. Because to understand it would likely paint me as an architect, and rather than be an archetect I think what Janna, the others and I want is for us to just be open and present to the storytelling movement here in Chicago. A movement that is organic in nature, in that it’s real, and not caused by astroturffing, slick adds, (of which there are a few,) or big money. It’s coming from elsewhere, it’s coming from more people connecting, it’s coming from people from diverse backgrounds saying, “Hey this is cool, let’s be involved.”

So we’ve been remiss in posting articles, but it’s in part because we’ve been busy having so many adventures. That means when we do get the time to sit down and set things to screen we’ll have a lot of content forthcoming. And speaking of screens! Here’s the Story spent all night working on hand-printing …

So I just want to give a quick update on the April 6th potluck. The event has been posted on Metromix, and Zombie Chicago has been kind enough to plug the event as well. My good friend Noah saved me the horrible fate of making a Facebook of which I have an irrational fear. For …

I missed a reading that Sam had invited me to, but that’s okay because I missed it to see this month’s Encyclo Show. Last month I’d let them borrow two double A batteries and in appreciation they gave me a free ticket, but probably-mostly I went because Video Games was the topic. I am going …

So I was sitting around in Nathan’s sun room, just kibitzing while he did some computer chicanery, “Listen, Janna can’t make the first show and she’s the pull for getting people to show up. So I was thinking, why don’t I just throw a party?” He asks me, “What’s the theme?” “I got nothing. I …

Essay Fiesta is run by Keith Ecker and Alyson Lyon. I was first introduced to the wonderful world/community of Book Cellar literati by my friend and Here’s the Story comrade Janna Sobel. It is on my mind today because I, along with about a dozen other fans, had gone out to see her perform …
