remnant 33: “There’s the story…”

Margaret Atwood is a Canadian author and poet. This quote resonated with me. It is the way my storytelling goes.

DISCOURSE as quilting

There’s the story, then there’s the real story, then there’s the story of how the story came to be told. Then there’s what you leave out of the story. Which is part of the story too. (p. 56)

About ivonprefontaine

I completed a PhD at Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. Previously, I taught for 20 years and taught for 15 years in a wonderful hybrid school . My dissertation topic and research were how certain teachers experience becoming who teachers. For me, teaching is a calling and vocation to express who I am as a person. Currently, I am waiting and listening to what calls me next. I am an educator, phenomenologist, scholar, published poet, author, parent, grandparent, and spouse.

  1. Obviously this quote is spoken by a master of her profession. 🙂

    I like how she is pointing out that the part that is left out is still part of the story. Actually I am finding that left out parts can sometimes leave a stronger (and more thought provoking) impression than the part which is told.

    Thank you for sharing!
