Stories captivate by beginning en media rez - in the middle of action. A fight, a plight, a flight from trouble and conflict. Moving on. The real heart of a story is about characters’ struggles to fix things. And hopefully triumph. But in the beginning, a story starts now, right now, en media rez. No background, no motivation to slow the action of Now. It’s the same in real life, and so it is with us.
We’re in the middle of… moving on.
Who, in their right minds, moves from south to north to retire? Motivation and background come later, woven in the middle of action. Right now, we’re on the move, jumping into a completely different lifestyle. It’s a challenge, an adventure, a journey. A change. Ahh, there’s the crucial word. This whole thing is about change, something we all resist.
Without change, a story is rudderless, uninteresting, floating along, showing no growth. Same for real life. And so we go… to be continued.
Life's an adventure,
