Fantasy Pattern

“I am not a novelist, really not even a writer; I am a storyteller.  One of my friends said about me that I think all sorrows can be borne if you put them into a story or tell a story about them, and perhaps this is not entirely untrue. To me, the explanation of life seems to be its melody, its pattern. And I feel in life such an infinite, truly inconceivable fantasy.”

–Karen Blixen (Isak Dinesen)
