We often see only the shadows on the wall and think they are reality. It takes courage to free one's mind from the shackles of conformity and step out into the bright light of a greater reality. A reality we cannot prove with empirical methods. It is the faculty of the imagination that embraces the task of seeking this truth. The meanings of our lives come from the stories we tell. I built this cave out of stories to honor the effort writers make to document that which is discovered in the imagination.
