“What is it about us, as humans. that needs to tell stories? Why are we so desperate to have narrative? Why is it not possible for us to just live in the mess? We have to create this kind of art of storytelling around the events in our lives. Otherwise, like, it’s just too much. It’s just too bewildering.”
