The Knotted Rope

Each of us lives on a rope.

A rope is what you call a universe.

There are many, many ropes

and they lie piled together, crossing and twisting, knotting and reknotting

into an impenetrable tangle.

Where two ropes are knotted, or three, or many,

there are places where thoughts and dreams are strong

and people gather.

These are the nodes, and stories happen there.


From “Welcome to the Knotted Rope”
